Limerick Ode To Hillary Haters

Now that Hillary Clinton has been diagnosed with a blood clot in her head, Jeff Greenfield asks an excellent question:

Wonder if those sarcastically doubting Sec. Clinton’s health will have the decency to apologize….I’m not exactly holding my breath.

Limerick Ode To Hillary Haters
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The haters are out to get Hill,
Spewing venom and meanness and swill,
Asserting with shrillness,
“She’s faking her illness!”
Is a blood clot sufficiently ill?

    The thing of it is you see,
    They really despise Hillary,
    She’s clever, she’s strong,
    And rarely is wrong,
    All the things they WISH they could be

    ( hey ! this is fun ! )

  2. Peter John says:

    The GOP is just renewing its war against the Clintons just in case Hillary decides to run in 2016. If I was them I would stop since the more they attack her the more the country will embrace her.

    If you can’t stand Hillary
    And wish her to pillory
    You’re always welcome on Fox
    No lie too tall
    No conspiracy too small
    Their viewers have heads of rocks.

    Hillary Clinton’s Blood Clot
    Is part of a dastardly plot!
    So Republicans claim
    To their unending shame
    They should really shut up, but they’ll not.

    So it’s “Hillary’s faking her ills!
    We demand to see medical bills
    And her medical records
    Free access to the sick wards
    And an accurate count of her pills.”

    And I bet Daryl Isa convenes
    A hearing to glean what it means
    There the Easter Bunny
    Will give testimony
    Then pass out free jelly beans.

  5. It has been too long. I’ve been meaning to stop by. But when there is almost no news, it is a lot more work to find things to write about.

    Now for a confession: I am really dense! “Who is Hill?” I asked. Is this some reference to the Clarence Thomas hearings? This is not an issolated incident of stupidity. A little character (a bobblehead) at Grocery Outlet was holding a sign that read, “I [heart] GO!” After days of thinking about it, I couldn’t figure it out. Finally, a friend told me. Also, this is probably my favorite song:

    I could while away the hours
    Conferrin’ with the flowers
    Consultin’ with the rain.

    But apparently, I AM another Lincoln in that I can tell long, rambling stories that exasperate people. In fact, that reminds me of a man I met back in…

    Happy new year Your Madness!

    A new low for the right wing-nuts.

  7. As the Krauthammer “news men” accost her,
    Through hearings and scandals have tossed her,
    To lie about Hillary,
    Not to say Bill-ary,
    Has no risk, recall “she murdered Foster”?

  8. Newsericks says:

    Here’s mine:

    Hillary is in the hospital
    With a dangerous blood clot.
    Right-wingers said she was faking.
    I guess this proves she was not.

    Charles Krauthammer and you others
    Not specifically here named:
    All of you should be
    Deeply, remorsefully ashamed.

    I know you all enjoy
    Saying things to spite us,
    But this takes the cake:
    You’re the ones with Beghazi-itis.

    For you, Mr. K.,
    I feel particular disgust:
    You demanded a White House apology
    About the Churchill bust.

    Dan Pfeiffer publicly apologized
    For the White House’s honest mistake.
    Will you for your dishonest smear
    A similar action take?

    All you callous right-wingers
    Who suggested Hillary lied:
    You’d better apologize now
    And think what you’d have said if she’d died.

    (Go to Newsericks for more, and please leave a comment to let me know what you think.)

  9. I know where the clots are.

    Well penned. I think I really like this style. :)

  11. Oh Mad, the form is light but the conciseness with which you continually bring forth truth is brilliant.

  12. Mary says:

    Truly I haven’t heard anyone say she was faking her illness….and I know people of both parties.

  13. Susan says:

    Wow! How wonderful the limericks!
    that lambast those who mock the sick
    but dear Hillery is strong enough
    to blast the stoning from the fluff
    (I just hope she’s not too rough.)

  14. Kim Nelson says:

    FAB! I am a Hillary fan, so found disgust in those right wing wieners.
