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!

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.

Who Needs Qualified Judges? (Limerick)

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

My latest limerick was inspired by this Politico headline: “Republicans step up defense of ‘not qualified’ judicial nominees.”

“Unqualified” judges? Who cares!?!
If the nominee’s attitude squares
With Republican stances,
Trump’s Court-choice advances.
He’s OUR guy, so NO splitting hairs!
