“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.”
