Limerick Ode To Joe (the “Brawler”) Biden

Arguments about Social Security and Medicare aside, there’s good news for Senior Citizens in both the Biden/Ryan debate and the Obama/Romney debate: In each instance, the old guy won — Big Time!

Limerick Ode To Joe (the “Brawler”) Biden
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Debating Paul Ryan, Joe won.
Moreover, he won by a ton:
Tough and energized, quick,
Biden pierced Ryan’s schtick.
Prez Obama, now THAT’S how it’s done.

    I love it, Mad! He was one tough cookie, wasn’t he?

    Old Joe Biden was peppy and sparky.
    GOP folks thought him a bit snarky.
    They admonished his grins,
    Among numerous sins,
    But how else does one deal with malarkey?

    Love Ira’s limerick. I think the big take-away was: Biden is likeable, Ryan is not!

    I’ve sent $ to VP Biden~~not to his boss or DCCC [but canvassed to get both names on 2012 NYS ballot]. “Brawlers” who grin & laugh~~instead of shrieking “Bring It On!” [Dubya Dumber]~~are the most self-disciplined…even charming. “Peppy” & “energized” fit him. When I’m 69, hope to have as much fun [no shuffleboard for Jill & Joe]. His teacher roomie is rather tough herself.

    In debate Rep. Ryan took a hit
    So Republicans went into a snit
    They said Joe Biden was rude
    As he laughed at their wonky dude
    But a fire under Dems the Veep lit.

    Joe Biden left Ryan no escapes
    And Republicans wept sour grapes
    But their weeping was creepy
    While Ryan looked sleepy
    As Joe stole the show, kitchen sink and the drapes.
