Kick-Ass Limerick

The language police are at it again. Republicans and Fox News (sorry to be redundant) are simply horrified at President Obama’s “unpresidential” language.

What are they so pretend-upset about? Obama used the word ass in response to Matt Lauer’s oil crisis question about kicking butt.

Apparently this is extremely shocking to the same folks who had no problem with f**ks from Bush, Cheney, and McCain.

That brings me to my latest limerick:

Kick-Ass Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The Republicans’ delicate ears
Are offended by ass, it appears.
F**k is fine from McCain,
Bush, and Cheney — that’s plain.
But ass from Barack begets jeers.

    Yeah… I don’t get it either. If anything – he’s a little late in saying it. Being a gulf coast Floridian – there should have been some serious ass kicking on day 1.

  5. You R’s, and your Indignarama,
    Have a tough row to hoe with Obama.
    He’s annoyingly cool,
    From the Civilized School,
    But you claim to be shocked now? Your mama.
