Limerick Ode To Rick “Fed Up With My Book!” Perry

When a candidate tries to distance himself from, say, his doctoral thesis, or a book written a dozen years ago, this passes the straight-face test.

But when Rick Perry tries this with Fed Up! (a book published last fall) it’s hard not to laugh out loud.

Perry’s problem, of course, is that his book is packed with extreme positions, too radical even for his own Republican party. So Perry’s campaign would have us believe that Perry’s Social Security is unconstitutional position from last year is no longer operative. The same goes for his call to repeal the 16th amendment and replace income taxes with a national sales tax.

Limerick Ode To Rick “Fed Up With My Book!” Perry
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Perry, that book you’d disclaim
Was written by you — you’re to blame.
And it’s new — ink’s not dry.
Yet you’re wondering why
We’re on to your radical game.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this. As more and more candidates blow up in the public eye ya gotta hope for their sake that they have a secret weapon to call on…not looking for for the next election. And the worse thing for them? THIS time WE will be counting the dangling chads.

    Love it! One shouldn’t read the contents of snake oil. Might not buy it then.

    Yes! Perry IS dumber than Dubya!
    Oh, RP, I wish we could scrubya!
    But the powers-that-be
    All sing in your key
    To cover the installing of Obubya.

    The only way it could make sense
    Is for it all to be just a pretense
    To hide all “their” cunning
    Behind true idiots running
    So we’re relieved with O playing dense.

    Just spot on.

    Well, we’re begining to realize that Rick Perry is W with a botched lobotomy! Again, i’m asking that the loyal opposition show up at any Rick Perry personal appearence and play Kinky Friedman’s “Asshole from El Paso” as loudly as possible! Let’s make this the official Anti-anthem for Rick Perry’s campaign!
