Did Trump Leak His Own Return? (Limerick)

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Trump’s been bitching about the publication of an old 1040 — a partial tax return that actually makes him look like a successful businessman and that does him no real harm. Moreover, he’s called it “fake news,” even though its validity was confirmed by Trump’s own office. So here’s my theory via limerick:

Dear Donald, the news makes you burn,
And your wiretap fib’s in an urn.
Ryan’s plan is a bust,
And distraction’s a must,
So I’m betting YOU leaked your return.

A Limerick Plea To Refocus

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

While Anthony Weiner has disgraced himself with his creepy online behavior, the Republican party disgraces itself every day with the policies it embraces. So it’s time to refocus on stopping Republicans from the horrific damage they do to the American people on a daily basis.

Weiner’s cyber-sex sure creeps me out.
Disappointment in him makes me pout.
But overreaction
Has caused a distraction:
Must block laws that Republicans tout.

Can’t Win An Argument On The Merits? Just Use The “Distraction” Gambit.

Republicans love to attack Obama’s initiatives by claiming they’re distractions from his “fix the economy” job. Apparently, if the economy continues to tank, it’s because he wasted all that time signing an executive order opening up stem cell research.

“Obama’s distracted. His plate
Is too full,” his detractors berate.
“His attention’s dispersed.
Put economy first.”
The problem is nothing can wait.

But Republicans don’t like his plans
And they often use indirect pans.
So research and health
Don’t relate to our wealth?
Boosting science and health — they ain’t fans.
