McConnell v. Biden (Limerick)

Friday, May 7th, 2021

Headline: “McConnell says he’s ‘100%’ focused on stopping Biden admin”

Mitch McConnell has one loathsome goal:
It’s to block Joseph Biden; the hole
In his soul’s been exposed,
Mitch’s mind’s long been closed;
V. Obama, he played the same role.

Scorning Mitch’s “Scorched-Earth” Threats (Limerick)

Saturday, March 20th, 2021

The threats from McConnell are worth
Very little, excepting some mirth.
He’ll tie up the work
Of the Senate? That jerk
Has blocked bills from the birth of the earth.

What Will It Take For Pence To Stop Repeating Trump’s Lies? (Limerick)

Thursday, March 4th, 2021

My latest limerick was inspired by a recent Mike Pence op-ed in The Daily Signal. Here’s how he begins: “After an election marked by significant voting irregularities and numerous instances of officials setting aside state election law, I share the concerns of millions of Americans about the integrity of the 2020 election.”

Dear Mike Pence, I am forced to surmise
That you haven’t stopped backing Trump’s lies.
He endangered your life!
Yet your statements are rife
With Trump myths. That’s bizarre and unwise.

Obsequious Republicans (Limerick)

Monday, February 15th, 2021

GOPers are weary and sick
Of defending that scurrilous Dick.
Yet they’re loath to abort
Their debased Trump support.
Are they cowards, or frauds? Take your pick!

Two-Faced Mitch (Limerick)

Monday, February 15th, 2021

Mitch is trying to have it both ways:
First he joins in the “Don’t Convict!” nays.
Then he spouts a critique
Of Trump’s actions, with pique.
For hypocrisy (rank!) he wants praise?

Mitch Finally Admits Biden Won (Limerick)

Wednesday, December 16th, 2020

Mitch McConnell should show some contrition
For his way overdue recognition
That the winner is Joe;
This delay helped Trump sow
Mass suspicion and threats of sedition.

GOP Quandary

Saturday, October 31st, 2020

Headline: “Trump drags down GOP senators, giving Democrats more paths to the majority”

Mitch McConnell and Co bet it all
On the Donald, but in the long haul,
Having pinned hopes and dreams
For their vile, evil schemes
On that crook, they are bound for a fall.

Trump’s GOP Enemies List (Limerick)

Sunday, October 18th, 2020

Headline: “Trump Is Taking Down Names as Republicans Begin Jumping Ship on His ‘Totally Off the Rails’ Campaign”

Donald Trump has been taking down names
Of Republican pols whom he blames
For their last minute swipes
And anti-Trump gripes:
No more favors from Trump, he proclaims.

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.

R. I. P. RBG (Limerick)

Saturday, September 19th, 2020

I’m too sad to write humorous verse;
Things have gone from horrendous to worse.
R. I. P. RBG!
You’ll be much missed by me,
As I watch Mitch McConnell and curse.

Nancy v. Mitch (and Trump) — Limerick

Wednesday, January 15th, 2020

New documents show why the president has been trying to hide evidence from Congress.”

New proof’s in the public domain,
Which may prove to be Donald Trump’s bane.
So though Nancy’s demand
Was not met, those who’ve panned
Her may rue this large evidence gain.

GOP Blockheads Block Witness Demands (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 7th, 2020

Hill Headline: “McConnell has the votes to block Democrats’ witness demands in Trump impeachment trial”

Donald Trump’s taken actions illicit,
But Republicans scoff and dismiss it
As perfectly fine
While they toe Mitch’s line…
And that makes them corruptly complicit.

“Moscow Mitch” Revisited (Limerick)

Wednesday, September 4th, 2019

Headline: “A very annoyed Mitch McConnell would like everyone to stop calling him ‘Moscow Mitch'”

When the name “Moscow Mitch” is deployed,
Mitch McConnell is vexed and annoyed:
It’s “not fair” — not a keeper.
(He’s fine with “Grim Reaper.”)
Where his conscience should be, there’s a void.

Mitch McConnell Miffed at “Moscow Mitch” (Limerick)

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

Some stories cry out for a limerick:

“The hashtag #MoscowMitchMcTreason began trending on Twitter Tuesday morning after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) fired back against the nickname ‘Moscow Mitch’ in a fiery speech from the Senate floor.

“MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, a former GOP lawmaker, dubbed McConnell ‘Moscow Mitch’ after McConnell on Friday blocked two election security measures.”

Mitch McConnell’s new name makes him twitch
And complain; he’s been dubbed “Moscow Mitch.”
I’m surprised that he’s peeved
And not rather relieved;
Trump’s received the much worse “Putin’s Bitch.”

“Case” Not So “Closed” (Limerick)

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

“Members of President Trump’s inner circle are frustrated that the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr.,” according to CNN.

It’s over and done, so “case closed,”
Says McConnell, yet Burr has imposed
A subpoena on one
Of Trump’s sons. (NOT so done!)
Here’s hoping Don Jr. is hosed.

Feigning Victimization (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

The GOP’s whining. They’re mad!
What a “sore winner” streak they have had!
They’re “the victims,” they wail
With an “angry mob” tale.
We were “mean” to their dissolute cad!

The GOP’s “Confused” Victim Con (Limerick)

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

Republican pols like to claim
They believe an accuser; their aim
Being sympathy feigned,
Which quickly is drained
By their “victim’s confused; wrong guy” game.

A Man’s “Forceful Denial” Trump’s All??? (Limerick)

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

Republican pols love to cite
Brett’s “forceful denials” to smite
Sundry claims as untrue.
But since when do a few
Screamed denials prove one side is right?

Republicans Destroy Yet Another Institution (Limerick)

Saturday, October 6th, 2018

The Dems once again were outplayed
By the GOP’s latest charade.
Our Supreme Court’s despoiled,
Human decency foiled
By the power-crazed Mitch-led brigade.

*****

GOP’s sole goal–
maintain control at all cost–
destroys Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh Lies (Limerick)

Sunday, September 30th, 2018

This limerick was inspired by Thursday’s hearing and this article: “THE UNBEARABLE DISHONESTY OF BRETT KAVANAUGH.”

Brett told lies to the world, large and small,
Some entailing an “I don’t recall.”
Some were odd, like this tale:
“No connections to Yale!”
Which just might Yale-grad-grandpa appall.
