Limerick Ode to Michele “Just Joking” Bachmann

The current crop of Republicans is notoriously callous, and Michele Bachmann is no exception. Here’s what she said about Hurricane Irene and other natural disasters:

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people, because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet, and we’ve got to rein in the spending.”

Of course, her campaign is now claiming “Bachmann Spoke ‘In Jest’ When She Said God Was Communicating Via Earthquakes And Hurricanes.”

Limerick Ode to Michele “Just Joking” Bachmann
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Irene was a message from God,
Said Michelle in a right-wingnut nod.
Then she claimed she was jesting,
Cuz bad press was cresting.
That loon as our Prez? Then we’re scrod.

    Weather, Michelle, is just that.
    So, how did you come by the stat
    that hurricanes made by
    a ticked god’s crusade try
    to indicate where we are at?

    Builds to a bold, inventive Q and A in final line—leaves a dynamic visual comparison to ponder.

    Great limerick Mad.

    The only natural disaster/message from God is Bachmann herself.

    Michelle, from her lofty elevation
    Sees everything through the Book of Revelation
    Be it fire or storming
    It’s only a warning
    So get ready to meet the Lord for His evacuation.

    Repugs “Don’t Pay!!”
    by Ellen Garneau

    The Republicans don’t want to pay,
    For Irene’s damage they say,
    Yet when their states were hit,
    They rushed FEMA’s tit,
    But how can they now get their way?

    Take the US hostage again,
    Need cuts before we begin,
    We can pay for wars,
    Rich tax cuts and whores,
    But money for people’s too slim.

    When Bush was in the White House,
    Spend away as quiet as a mouse,
    Now the tables have turned,
    Democrats must be burned,
    But it’s obvious who is the louse!!

    We really need FEMA today!!
    We’re not in the mood to play!
    Those gamers must go,
    The Tea Party too, Mofo,
    With “entitlements” forever, we stay!

    A real crazy Rep. named Michele
    Says the USA’s going to Hell,
    And if we don’t behave
    The whole country will cave;
    Only she knows the Lord’s mind so well!

    When hurricane winds start to blow,
    It’s Washington’s fault, don’t you know.
    We spend too much money
    On people – how funny!
    But God clearly wants to spend mo’!

    Rebuilding our houses will cost,
    Also bridges and highways we’ve lost.
    To clean up the muck
    Will require more than luck.
    The feds’ bucks are what we’ll need most!
