Shameless Republicans On Christmas Attack

Republicans have been treating Nigerian Abdulmutallab’s failed Christmas Day bombing of Flight 253 like a Christmas gift from Al Qaeda — something really juicy to exploit.

In fact, the Republicans’ partisan response to this attempted terrorism has been so shameless, even Politico noticed.

Republicans like Pete Hoekstra, James DeMint, Dan Burton, and many others have earned themselves a triple limerick by playing politics with national security:

Shameless Republicans On Christmas Attack
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Exploiting a terror attempt
Is surely beneath all contempt.
But that never would stop
Such a GOP op:
“Bash Obama! He failed to preempt.”

There is plenty of blame they should share
For that terrorist scare in the air.
We’ve no TSA head:
DeMint “held” him instead
Of a vote. It’s Republican guerre.

As for funding our air travel screening,
They vote no. Seems they’re pro-terror leaning.
Though their record is poor,
They keep spouting full-bore.
Please Republicans, spare us your preening.

NOTE: Here’s some unrelated, but timely, New Years Resolutions humor: It Is Hereby Resolved.

    We keep hearing year after year
    “The next terror soon will appear
    “We must be prepared
    “To be challenged and dared
    “We will win!” always triggers our cheer

    If we knew we would be so dismayed
    Just how easily we all get played
    All they have to do
    Is holler out “BOO!”
    And we fall into place well arrayed

    We mindlessly hand over bucks
    We once used to buy cars and trucks
    And pay for our schools –
    Not needed for fools
    Nor for penniless poor frightened ducks.

    As long as the sky’s gonna fall
    We’ll never get rid of them all
    Until we all change
    And think them too strange
    To ever pick up when they call.

    Vote Republican? Well, in a pinch,
    But you’ll never get rid of the stench.
    They’re rude and unfair,
    And as for their “guerre” …
    ‘Scuse me if I’m wrong… ain’t that French?
