Yet Another Ode To Republican Hypocrisy

My latest double limerick, written in an antibiotic haze and inspired by Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s secession talk brouhaha:

Yet Another Ode To Republican Hypocrisy
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Under Bush left-dissent equaled treason.
So Republicans claimed without reason.
Now Obama is prez
(A commie Chavez)
And secession is righteous — not teasin’.

Yes Gov. Perry and co. say it’s fine —
This unconstitutional whine:
Secede cuz Barack
Is a Europy Jacques.
Then they pray to Ron Reagan. Divine!

    Thanks so much, Marty. It’s time to get liberal, indeed!

    Mad, i love the ‘pray to RR’ part in particular. Now where did i read a week or so ago that there were/are Two Reagans…Slate perhaps? The misty-eyed Rs must be careful which one they pine for! jc

    Thanks Jude. Yes, Ronald Regan’s son Ron has an Air America talk show, so they’re in grave danger indeed. Of course, they could always pray to RR’s other son Michael who has a wingnut talk radio show.

    If I could snap a thousand times for all the world to hear, I would. Brilliant. Hypocrisy runs rampant. Cheers.

    It really is funny that the Treaty is where they settled to start their threats….

    Not being a lawyer I couldn’t say for sure if it could be set into motion or not but I suppose they could try…they are pretty much running everything here in the Republic of Tejas…

  7. madkane says:

    Thanks for your comments Frank and Essaress. And Essaress, I don’t think this secession talk is serious. It’s just an attempt to establish their rightwingnut creds.
