Limerick Ode To Mitt “Birther” Romney

The Birther crowd surely loved this alleged joke from Mitt Romney:

Mitt Romney descended into birther politics today, when he joked during a campaign stop that “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.”

“I love being home, where the both of us were born,” Romney said at a rally in his native Michigan. “Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital. I was born in Harper Hospital.”

“No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate,” he continued. “They know this is the place where we were born and raised!”

Limerick Ode To Mitt “Birther” Romney
By Madeleine Begun Kane

No one ever has questioned my birth,
Brags Mitt Romney, with make-believe mirth.
His “joke” was a hit.
Stay classy, dear Mitt.
Boost the Birthers. It shows your true worth.

    Great one, and right-on. I was wondering ho you’d rhyme birther.

  3. On The Last Word, O’Donnell mentioned talking to an comedian friend who noted that the thing about jokes is that people laugh at them. No one laughed at Romney’s whatever; they cheered. Excellent point, I thought.

    On other fronts, you have caused me to leave scraps of paper everywhere with half written limericks scribbled on them. Don’t use your powers for ill, Mad Kane!

    Speaking of Mitt-related jokes:

    Union coal workers stood as Mitt spoke–
    Right behind him, on camera, plain folk.
    ‘Twas a striking tableau.
    Seems the boss ordered, “Go!
    And forget about pay. That’s no joke.”
