David Vitter’s Traylor Travails

So far, Senator David Vitter of Louisiana has survived several scandals ranging from soliciting a prostitute from the “D.C. Madam,” to keeping a “women’s issues” aide (Brent Furer) on staff who allegedly held his girlfriend hostage at knifepoint.

But now he’s confronting a brand new challenge — a last minute, unexpected primary fight launched by retired Judge Chet Traylor.

And that brings me to my latest two-verse limerick:

David Vitter’s Traylor Travails
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The scandal-scarred Senator Vitter
Got struck with a last minute hitter:
A primary fight
From the GOP’s right.
Now he’s bitter. I read it on Twitter.

Chet Traylor has pulled off this filing,
And bus’nesses find him beguiling—
Former judge who’s a fan
Of the sodomy ban.
And that’s why Dave Vitter ain’t smiling.

    I’ve one thing to say about Vitter
    While trying not to sound bitter
    I hate this guy so
    I just wish he’d go
    Where he belongs – down the shitter.

    THIS is the final and corrected version. At last!
    I’m clicking too fast. Proofread, dammit Jesse!

    With Vitter’s rep rapidly sagging
    The loop-de-loop right sensed a fragging
    How ironic they chose
    As the guy to oppose
    One who obviously knows his teabagging.
