Limerick Ode To McCain, The Conciliator

Republican pols, most notably John McCain, didn’t find Obama’s second inaugural address sufficiently conciliatory. Here’s McCain:

“There was very little reaching out to the other side,” he said. “It was a fine speech, but I didn’t hear any conciliatory remarks. I didn’t see any specific reference like, ‘I reach out my hand to the other side of the aisle.’ “

As Obama’s Inaugural wraps,
John McCain now complains of a lapse:
Just where in the speech
Does the President reach
Cross the aisle to invite some more slaps?

  1. Have you never heard of McCainia.
    Sunday show megalomania
    The words, rolled out easy
    Turns out, they’re bulls’ feces,
    And next week he’ll say much insanier
