An End To The “Pivot” Spin? (Limerick)

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Donald’s message: “I don’t want to pivot.”
Such a statement is certain to rivet
The Republican leaders–
Those desperate pleaders–
Will they somehow survive and out-live it?

Trump’s Not-So-Veiled Threats (Limericks)

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Many hope for a brokered convention,
Yet fear it will stir up dissension
And rioting sprees
By Trump devotees…
A likelihood Trump likes to mention.

Open Limerick To The GOP

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

You’re the “Party of Trump,” GOP.
You created this monster, with glee.
All that bile you can’t sate
Is your fault — the mad state
Of your base — spoon-fed hate at your knee.

Trump Boos The RNC (Limerick)

Monday, February 15th, 2016

Methinks Trump is worried that his recent boo-riddled debate performance bodes badly for his chances in Saturday’s South Carolina primary.

Why? Because he’s now claiming that the RNC broke its pledge to stay neutral in the race, and that this voids his promise not to run as a third-party candidate:

‘The (Republican National Committee) is in default,’ Trump said during a news conference at the Hanahan Town Hall on Monday. ‘When somebody is in default, that means the other side can [do] what they have to do.’

The RNC’s broken its pledge,
Complained Trump, who is clearly on edge
About Saturday’s vote.
Though he’s hoping to gloat,
He’s preemptively starting to hedge:

My no-independent-run vow
Is null and is void as of now
Cuz the RNC failed
To stay neutral, he railed.
To the party, I just might say “Ciao!”

Trump’s Empty Pledge (Limerick)

Friday, September 4th, 2015

Does The Donald risk losing his edge
With his RNC loyalty pledge?
No he’ll dredge up some slight–
An excuse for a fight;
“They’re not treating me fair,” he’ll allege.

So if somebody else gets the nod,
This will “prove” that the process was flawed
By “mistreatment” of Trump.
The oath’s simple to dump,
And he’ll run as a third-party “god.”

My Debate Prediction (Limerick)

My Debate Prediction
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Will Trump, while debating, “play nice?”
If he does, Trump will pay a steep price,
Cuz “nice” AIN’T what fans bought;
With just “nice” he’s got naught.
One mild “slight?” He’ll be “Trump” in a trice.

Trump’s Trump Card (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

When he’s asked if he’ll run “Independent,”
Trump’s response is with warnings resplendent:
If the RNC’s “fair”
Then I won’t, he’ll declare,
Which explains why Trump-fear is ascendant.

Limerick Ode To Reince Priebus

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

I share Ed Kilgore’s amusement at the NRO’s interview with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. Kilgore says:

At NRO, Jim Geraghty has an unintentionally hilarious interview with RNC chairman Reince Priebus in which the party chief pledges a frantic effort to look everywhere for ways to improve the party’s appeal—everywhere, that is, other than ideology, the Big Taboo no one is supposed to address.

Limerick Ode To Reince Priebus
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Reince Priebus now brags that he’s planned
To improve the Republican brand.
But his pride seems misplaced
Cuz root problems ain’t faced:
Ideology change appears banned.
