How About A Hypocrisy Ceiling?

I love Mat Miller’s new definition of chutzpah:

Republicans who vote for the Ryan plan that adds trillions in debt and who then say the debt limit goes up only over their dead bodies!

That brings me to my latest Limerick:

How About A Hypocrisy Ceiling?
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The GOP debt-ceiling balkers
Are naught but hypocrisy hawkers.
Their plan adds eight trillion
(Not million or billion)
To the debt in a decade — Big Talkers!

  1. US politics is an unknown area for me, but your pungent limerick is universal: hypocrite is a synonym for politician.

    I always wonder who THEY owe OUR money to… before making US pay it back…

  3. So delighted to have found you!

    Hypocrisy ceiling is delightful
    Of course would be blocked
    By those too spiteful
    To see that the game they play in hatred’s name
    Is anything short of astutely insightful!
