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.

Brett Kavanaugh Limerick Duo

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

Will Kavanaugh ever bow out?
That perjuring sexual lout
Was intended to be
Donald’s trump card; he’s key
To Trump’s keeping his freedom and clout.

*****
Mitch has hired a “female assistant”
So Republican men can stay distant
From plans untoward
Like “assassinate” Ford…
Which might render their wins non-existent.

That Mitch Is Quite A Stitch! (Limerick)

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

The Week: “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that the Senate will ‘vote to confirm’ the successor of outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy ‘this fall,’ adding that ‘it’s imperative that the president’s nominee be treated fairly.'”

Mitch McConnell says Dems must be fair
When it’s time to fill Kennedy’s chair.
Forget fairness; send coal
To the Leader who stole
Our great Court. Tell that thief “This is guerre!”

McConnell Stop Trump Tariffs? Don’t Hold Your Breath (Limerick)

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018

Headline: “Mitch McConnell: Trump’s Tariffs Are a ‘Slippery Slope’”

Donald’s tariffs? A “slippery slope,”
Says McConnell. But follow-through? Nope!
Though his warnings are dour,
He won’t use his power
To curb him; that coward can’t cope.

Open Limerick To Republicans

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Dear Republicans: Jabber is cheap,
And it won’t force the Donald to keep
Mueller’s Russia probe going.
The danger is growing.
You’re emboldening Trump and his Veep.

Mitch v. Mueller (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

One of today’s many annoying headlines: “McConnell Sees No Need to Protect Mueller From President Trump”

No need to shield Mueller, says Mitch.
No chance he’ll be tossed in a ditch.
Undermine him? You jest!
No one has such a quest!
And if something goes wrong? Life’s a bitch!

Shutdown Deal — Schumer Cave? Or Strategery? (Limerick)

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

A promise from Mitch makes me twitch.
Who would bet against glitches or hitch?
Yes a DACA vote pledge
Is worth caca; a hedge
Could turn Schumer from champ to Mitch-bitch.

Mitch’s Secret Health Bill (Limerick)

Friday, June 16th, 2017

A health care vote’s scheduled for June,
But the bill’s in an air-tight cocoon;
It’s been hidden by Mitch
Cuz its terms are a bitch
Which, if known, we’d impugn and lampoon.
