SOTU Antics (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Watch the SOTU’s bipartisan fight,
As the Prez walks the aisle Tuesday night.
Pols will lunge for his hand
Or a cheek, so they’ll land
On TV in this annual rite.
And speaking of the State of the Union Address, remember the good old days when there was one yearly State of the Union speech and a single response from the opposition party?
Then, suddenly, the Republicans added a second rebuttal (referred to as the Tea Party response.) This was done in accordance with the “Oh my God! There’s a black president!” rule.
Well this year, two Republican responses have been deemed insufficient. (The “Why hasn’t he been impeached yet?” rule.)
So this Tuesday night we’ll be treated to three Republican rebuttals from Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul, respectively.
What’s the matter? No room for Chris Christie?
Maybe next year, if he hangs on to his gig in New Jersey.
