Limerick Ode To the “Unity” Community

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

I cringe at each “unity” call
From Donald’s defenders. What gall!
Still making excuses
For Donald’s abuses,
They’re enablers and hypocrites all!

GOP Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Thursday, December 17th, 2020

“Republicans suddenly discover they don’t like naughty words”

O! M! G! Biden’s aide used a word
That is naughty! What outrage it’s stirred
In the horde that ignored
All the curses Trump roared.
They’re a vile, hypocritical herd.

GOP Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 1st, 2020

Headline: “For Years, Republicans Ignored Donald Trump’s Tweets. Now They’re Using Twitter as an Excuse to Attack Biden’s Budget Chief Pick”

GOPers had little to say
About Trump’s heinous tweets. So blasé,
Were those pols, that they shrugged.
Yet by Tanden’s they’re bugged
And enraged — their bad faith on display.

Limerick Ode To Republican Hypocrisy

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020

“Toobin: McConnell engaging in ‘greatest act of hypocrisy in American political history’ with Ginsburg replacement vote”

I despise all the brazen hypocrisy
From Republican pols. Seems democracy
Has been callously cast
Aside. I’m aghast
At their theo-and-corpora-tocracy.

Limerick Ode To Trump Enablers

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

Headline: “The Mad King’s Enablers”

Though elected Republicans know
That Trump is unfit, they still show
That their stance is protect
And defend and deflect…
No matter how low Trump will go.

Unsuitable Anger (Limerick)

Wednesday, August 28th, 2019

There once was a scandal so bad,
That many lashed out at the cad
Who dared wear a tan suit
In the White House. The brute!!!
It’s amazing what once made folks mad.

Headline: “Five years ago, Obama was blasted for wearing a tan suit. Now, it’s used to contrast him with Trump.”

Limerick Ode To Paul Ryan

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

Headline: “Paul Ryan sure wishes we could have fixed the deficit he helped explode

Good riddance, Paul Ryan. Buh-bye,
To a craven and faux-wonkish guy.
“Budget hawk?” What a joke!
You’re a tax-cutting bloke,
And your life’s a big deficit lie!

House GOP Still Investigating Hillary (Trump? Not so much!) (Limerick)

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Headline: “Comey slams Trump, House Republicans after 2nd Capitol Hill meeting”

Hypocritical House GOP
Keeps probing Hill Clinton with glee.
Yet they find it distasteful
And claim that it’s wasteful
To study Trump’s criminal spree.

Kevin McCarthy’s Quite The Kidder! (Limerick)

Friday, December 14th, 2018

Headline: “McCarthy calls on incoming Democrats to embrace bipartisanship, not ‘food fight’ or investigations”

Kev McCarthy, of Party-First rule,
Must believe ev’ry Dem is a fool.
Now that Dems run the House,
That hypocrite louse
Touts bipartisanship. What a tool!

The GOP’s Silence Is Deafening (Limerick)

Saturday, December 8th, 2018

From Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist Victoria Brownworth: “It’s extraordinary that the GOP leadership has said not one word about the events of the last 24 hrs. A sitting US president has been named as a felon. A felon. And they are silent.”

Now that Donald has clearly been named
As a criminal, who could be blamed
For wondering when
Republican men
Will acknowledge their party’s been shamed?

Free Market Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Headline: “Trump Threatens GM”

Donald Trump tries to bully and bait
GM’s management. I can not wait
For the free-marketeers
In the GOP spheres
To speak out and the Donald berate.

Yet Another Episode of “Rules Only Apply To Democrats” (Limerick)

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Headline: Trump Dismisses Ivanka Email Story as ‘Fake News’

Remember Trump’s dominant theme?
“Lock her up!” — a Republican meme.
Where are similar rants
Re Ivanka? Those chants;
Could it be they were only a dream?

A Limerick Ode To GOP Hypocrisy

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

Just imagine the sturm and the drama,
If a Dem such as Ex-Prez Obama
Retained someone to fix
All his problems with chicks.
How the GOP’d feast on such trauma!

But with Donald, who cares? No big deal!
From supporters there’s hardly a squeal.
Sleaze and lies do not matter;
No Trump-crime can shatter
Their faith, for the Donald’s THEIR heel.

Pro-Life??? (Limerick)

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

Viewing DACA, Head Start, WIC with scorn,
Pushing guns, while their victims still mourn.
Cutting taxes is key!
The “pro-life” GOP
Is ONLY pro-life till you’re born.

Remember Deficit Hawks? (Limericks)

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Dear Republican Deficit Hawks:
We’re awaiting your screams and your squawks.
Never mind my verse preface; it’s
Clear only deficits
Grown under Dems are a pox.

Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Trump (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Donald’s slogans are fashioned for chumps:
“Buy and Hire American?” Grumps,
Rightly irked by his game,
Notice somehow the same
Rules are spurned by the firms built by Trumps.

Disclosure’s Just For Democrats? (Limerick)

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Donald’s taxes? Don’t bother to press.
Who arrives at the White House? Just guess.
The transparency-hawk
Who knocked Dems will just balk,
While he blithely discloses much less.

Transparency’s Only For Democrats? (Limerick)

Friday, April 14th, 2017

Donald’s trashed yet another tradition,
While expanding disclosure attrition.
He is hiding from view
White House logs of his queue
Of visitors. Stealth is his mission.

Open Limerick To FBI Director James Comey

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

There’s a stark double standard from Comey.
(If you don’t think I’m MAD, you don’t know me.)
He proclaims each Hill crumb,
Yet on Trump he stays mum.
So my message to Comey is “Blow me!”

Exchangeable Views (Limerick)

Exchangeable Views (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The Republican stance is still no:
“Obamacare’s bad and must go.”
So explain why they bitch
That something they’d ditch
Does things they don’t want way too slow.
