An Alpha-Political Farewell to Bush and Cheney

Back in 2004 I summed up George Bush’s first term in my Alpha Politics. So it seems only appropriate to do the same for the Bush-Cheney second term. (Most of the links point to one of my satirical posts on the topic.)

A is for Jack Abramoff who’s big in pay-to-play.

B’s for greedy bankers who have fleeced the USA.

C is for Sen. Craig who isn’t gay, except in bed.

D is for democracy which Dubya hasn’t spread.

E’s for the economy which George and Dick destroyed.

F’s for filibuster. You need merely say the “woid”.

G’s for Giuliani who is 9-1-1 obsessed.

H is for hypocrisy — the right-wing does it best.

I is for impeachment which Bush/Cheney sure deserve.

J’s for Joe The Plumber — right-wing symbol. What a nerve!

K is for Ms. Kennedy, the would-be New York Sen.

L is for Joe Lieberman, the worst of traitor men.

M’s for John McCain who zigged and zagged till he was hoarse.

N is for Ralph Nader who is still without remorse.

O is for O’Reilly — shuts up those who disagree.

P is for Gov. Palin who has “saved” the GOP.

Q is for the air quotes placed by John on mother’s “health.”

R is for recession — say goodbye to all your wealth.

S is for Gov. Spitzer. Prostitution did him in.

T is for the terrorists, now savoring their win.

U is for the USA, on life support right now.

V is for the victor. Prez Obama take a bow.

W’s for the White House left by Bush in disarray.

X is for the X’ing out of Bush regs any day.

Y’s for “Yes, we can,” Barack Obama’s sanguine creed.

And Z’s for right-wing zealots who methinks are off their feed.

    If Larry Craig had only been gay in bed, he’d never have had a problem.

    It was his being gay in a public restroom that people had a problem with.

    Actually, Larry Craig was a senator, not a Rep., but still funny. I never voted for him and he never did anything useful I can remember, but he did finally prove to be worthwhile. He has provided more latenight humor than any other senator I can remember.

    Thanks everyone. And thanks for the eagle-eye correction, Mark. I don’t know how I managed to make that error, but I’ve corrected it.

  4. I enjoyed this, despite not being familiar with all the names. It will be interesting to see what relationship George Brown has to Barack Obama. I doesn’t strike me as a ‘poodle’, but then Obama’s no Bush. I’m hopeful that he won’t disappoint in the way the Labour administration has done over here in the U.K.

    I would so love you to give an Alpha Politics dressing down for our fool lot here in Canada. Well done Mad, thanks for the grins.

    Thanks so much everyone! It was a fun post to write, though a lot more work than a limerick. :)
