A Limerick Farewell To Anthony Weiner

Limerick Farewell To Anthony Wiener
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I’m feeling forlorn, but resigned.
We have lost a great liberal mind.
There was really no choice
But to lose Weiner’s voice—
His behavior put Dems in a bind.

Let’s hope this is only a pause—
That one day he’ll be cured of his flaws—
With the passage of time
He’ll arise from the slime
And further our liberal cause.

    And a limerick welcome to weepy John and a hearty congratulations on his sex scandal.

    John Boehner, Speaker of the House
    Has shown himself to be a louse
    Had an affair with a real hottie
    Now his career is down the pottie
    So binge he will in a month long souse.

    Ole’ John Beaner stuck his weiner
    Just as soon as he had seen her
    In hotels around the city
    Exposed himself and what a pity
    Cause now it’s back to Bowling Greener.

    Oh, well, it’s been a long day.

  2. Madeleine, I’m with you on your comments about the fallen Congressman. What an odd addiction. Mania? Hypomania? Treatable? What a loss, and I hope his wife will handle this major quake as well as possible, but that’s a private matter.

    I wrote a limerick about this, but decided to toss it.

    What is it that makes folks from both sides of the isle self-destruct when they go to Washington?

  4. Anthony Wiener is gone
    While Vitter’s proud to be “John”
    And the Democrats pander
    To this double standard
    While Ensign and Coburn get along.

    Anthony Wiener was a thorn
    That the DLC regularly scorned,
    Now Wiener resigns
    Amidst corporate crimes,
    But they’re clouded by T and A storms.

    As radioactive as Hanford,
    That’s Weiner. No Dem thinks he can ‘ford
    His staying. Yet GOPers?
    Free pass on the bloopers
    Of Vitter and Craig, and yes, Sanford.

    – SB
