More McCarthy Mockery

Thursday, January 5th, 2023

According to WP’s Robert Costa, Matt Gaetz says McCarthy must either “withdraw from the race,” or commit to a “straitjacket” agreement.

Come to think of it, straitjackets sound like a great idea for most of the House Republicans!

*****

As self-centered loons
impede race to be Speaker,
insanity reigns.

*****

This haiku, I swear,
is my last McCarthy verse
until tomorrow.

*****

Way too many pols
in Republican Party
naught but Pied Pipers.

*****

“Concession-Kevin”
becomes just-pretend Speaker.
Pyrrhic victory.

*****

Kevin’s Dream (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2023

I watch the amusing display
Of Republican House disarray,
And think of the soul
Kevin sold for his goal,
As his Speakership dream floats away.

Trump Just Deserts? (Limerick)

Saturday, December 31st, 2022

My last Trump limerick of the year. (I hope it isn’t unduly optimistic.)

When Trump is at long last arrested,
Will he fin’ly acknowledge he’s bested
And surrender with grace
And a smile on his face?
Ha, he’ll protest with falsehoods time-tested.

Trump’s Hellacious Holiday Rant (Limerick)

Sunday, December 25th, 2022

While I try to avoid TruthSocial, I enjoyed this article in, of all places, the NYPost, mocking Trump’s Christmas message. Reading it even inspired me to write this limerick:

Having failed in his goal to destroy us,
Trump’s reduced to a pest who’d annoy us.
Flinging insults galore
In each TruthSocial snore,
That poor slob doesn’t sound all that joyous!

I can never resist mocking Marjorie Taylor Greene:

Flag-Hugger Haiku

Monday, December 5th, 2022

Flag-hugger Donald
says suspend Constitution–
GOP pols shrug.

Immersed In Mendacity (Limerick and Haiku)

Saturday, December 3rd, 2022

Many folks have a shocking capacity
For deception and lies — sheer mendacity.
They will lie to the max,
Spurring violent attacks
On those guilty of naught but veracity.

*****

When mendacity
replaces veracity,
sorry state indeed.

Trump’s Announcement Dud (Limerick)

Sunday, November 27th, 2022

Donald’s run has been met with a shrug.
Will he fin’ly be squished like a bug?
He announced and was trounced
In reviews, soon pronounced
“Tired” news. Please indict that damn thug!

Loony Lindell (Limerick)

Friday, November 25th, 2022

A headline like this one cries out for a limerick: “Mike Lindell Weighing Run Against GOP’s Ronna McDaniel ‘If God Willing'”

Mike Lindell is consid’ring a run
For RNC Chair. Oh what fun!
He’s a “pillow tycoon”
And conspiracy loon,
Whose motto’s “Republicans won!!!”

Republican Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Monday, November 21st, 2022

Though Republicans don’t try to stem
Wrongful deeds, when the cad’s one of THEM,
They’ll condemn to the max
The purest of acts,
If that action is done by a Dem.

The Real Reason Trump’s Running Yet Again (Limerick)

Tuesday, November 15th, 2022

Donald thinks that his run’s a solution
To imminent crime-prosecution.
But indictments shall come,
And that law-breaking bum
Will be tried and soon face retribution.

You KNOW Who You Are!

Wednesday, October 26th, 2022

You think women have too many rights
And that MORE guns will somehow stop fights.
You’ll vote for a liar;
A guy you’d not hire
To baby or dog-sit. That bites!

The Key To Trump’s “Success” (Limerick)

Sunday, September 4th, 2022

When I ask myself, “How can it be
That no matter what Donald does, he
Somehow keeps a tight hold
On his fan base,” I’m told
That the answer’s a “huge BOOBOISIE.”

Trump, The Extortionist (Limerick)

Tuesday, August 30th, 2022

Headline: “Trump Is Trying To Extort America”

Donald Trump is so desp’rate to thwart
Prosecution, he’s apt to resort
To additional crimes,
Like extortion ofttimes;
Indict Trump! Get that felon to court!

Trump’s Legal Quandary (Limerick)

Wednesday, August 17th, 2022

Washington Post Headline: “Trump is rushing to hire seasoned lawyers — but he keeps hearing ‘No’”

Trump’s in great legal trouble. Hooray!
He needs aid on the double — today!
But attorneys with skill
Won’t bend to his will;
The response he keeps getting is NAY!

Garland v. Trump

Thursday, August 11th, 2022

Dear Donald, it seems that your bluff
Has been called, and in you’re in quite the huff.
Garland’s move to unseal
That warrant? Big deal!
Seems you’ve shot yourself right in the duff.

Trump’s Trumped-Up Victimhood (Limerick)

Thursday, August 11th, 2022

Donald’s so-called “unjustified raid”
Was approved by a judge. Don’t be played!
T’s were crossed. I’s were dotted.
His crimes have been spotted.
Our nation by Trump’s been betrayed.

My Open Limerick-Letter To Would-Be Trump Attorneys

Tuesday, August 9th, 2022

Trump’s besieged and (I’ve heard) on the hunt
For lawyers to take on the stunt
Of defending his ass.
Dear Esqs, you should pass…
Or at least get full payment up front.

The Grifter Strikes Again (Limerick)

Monday, August 8th, 2022

Dear Donald, I see that once more,
You’re begging for dollars galore.
I’m amused that you claim
It’s for lawsuits. How lame!
Bills from lawyers are bills you ignore.

Boris v. Trump (Limerick)

Thursday, July 7th, 2022

Boris Johnson’s resigned, at long last.
But at least he admits his time’s passed.
He’s not tried to incite
Armed mobs just for spite…
Or promised loyal felons a blast.
