More McCarthy Mockery

Thursday, January 5th, 2023

According to WP’s Robert Costa, Matt Gaetz says McCarthy must either “withdraw from the race,” or commit to a “straitjacket” agreement.

Come to think of it, straitjackets sound like a great idea for most of the House Republicans!

*****

As self-centered loons
impede race to be Speaker,
insanity reigns.

*****

This haiku, I swear,
is my last McCarthy verse
until tomorrow.

*****

Way too many pols
in Republican Party
naught but Pied Pipers.

*****

“Concession-Kevin”
becomes just-pretend Speaker.
Pyrrhic victory.

Of Republican House disarray,
And think of the soul
Kevin sold for his goal,
As his Speakership dream floats away.

Immersed In Mendacity (Limerick and Haiku)

Saturday, December 3rd, 2022

Many folks have a shocking capacity
For deception and lies — sheer mendacity.
They will lie to the max,
Spurring violent attacks
On those guilty of naught but veracity.

*****

When mendacity
replaces veracity,
sorry state indeed.

Trump’s Announcement Dud (Limerick)

Sunday, November 27th, 2022

Donald’s run has been met with a shrug.
Will he fin’ly be squished like a bug?
He announced and was trounced
In reviews, soon pronounced
“Tired” news. Please indict that damn thug!

Republican Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Monday, November 21st, 2022

Though Republicans don’t try to stem
Wrongful deeds, when the cad’s one of THEM,
They’ll condemn to the max
The purest of acts,
If that action is done by a Dem.

To imminent crime-prosecution.
But indictments shall come,
And that law-breaking bum
Will be tried and soon face retribution.

You KNOW Who You Are!

Wednesday, October 26th, 2022

You think women have too many rights
And that MORE guns will somehow stop fights.
You’ll vote for a liar;
A guy you’d not hire
To baby or dog-sit. That bites!

Republican Projection Project (Limerick)

Saturday, January 15th, 2022

Projection’s a GOP ploy
Which tends to besmirch and annoy;
Falsely claiming that Dems
Commit GOP “gems,”
Their lies are deployed to destroy.

The Perennially “Concerned” Sen. Collins (Limerick)

Saturday, August 15th, 2020

Headline: “Susan Collins Expresses ‘Concerns’ Over Delays In Mail Delivery”

Susan Collins — “concerned” once again;
She clucks like a malcontent hen,
As if truly upset
By misdeeds or a threat…
But follow-through votes? Not that Sen!

Devilish Deal (Limerick)

Saturday, February 1st, 2020

Trump’s impeachment’s erased any doubt
That the GOP’s ceded its clout
And sold off its soul
To that scurrilous troll
In the Oval; it’s owned by that lout.

Donald “Emboldened Rogue” Trump (Limerick)

Wednesday, January 8th, 2020

As Donald Trump’s dirty deeds mount,
He never is called to account.
This emboldens and stirs him
To escalate — spurs him
To WORSE acts — too many to count.

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.

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.

The GOP Mantra (Limerick)

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

O! M! G! Trump’s in trouble! Deflect!
Hit the Left with some bullshit. Infect
All the news with confusion
Encourage delusion!
That’s the GOP mantra unchecked.

Be Careful What You Wish For (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

As Republicans surely are learning
(Having finally sated their yearning
For one-party rule)
Running government’s cool…
But much harder than blocking and churning.

When Exactly Was Trump Shackled? (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Does anyone remember Donald Trump being shackled? Me neither.

And yet here’s Trump on Twitter: “It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to.”

It’s time for a two-verse limerick. (5 Lines just aren’t enough.)

Now that Trump’s been “unshackled,” beware:
Donald’s free to be mean as a bear.
Trump the “gentleman’s” done.
Trump the tough guy’s begun;
That’s his threat in an effort to scare.

But this taunt leaves me rather amused,
Because Donald has constantly oozed
Spiteful bile on the stump.
Trump has ALWAYS been Trump,
Spewing lies that are venom-infused.

Mitch McConnell’s Hard Job Of Pretending To Work (Limerick)

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Headline of the Day:

Senate takes 2016 sabbatical
The chamber is in session for the fewest days in 60 years, straining Mitch McConnell’s claim that the chamber is ‘back to work.’

It’s a tough NON-accomplishment race,
But the GOP Senate’s on pace
To work less then it’s ever
Pulled off — this endeavor
Makes “back to work” false on its face.

A Not-So-Fond Farewell to Carly Fiorina (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

Carly’s gone from the race. I won’t miss her.
Though of course if it’s apt, I’ll still diss her.
And I hope she’ll embrace
Someone else in this race…
Cuz I’d love to see Donald Trump kiss her.

Successful Soul-Searching Is Tough Sans A Soul (Limerick)

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

Conservatives, bummed and bereft,
Due to Donald Trump’s poll number heft,
After searching their brains
To explain his huge gains,
Found the cause: It’s Barack and the Left!
