McConnell v. Biden (Limerick)

May 7th, 2021

Headline: “McConnell says he’s ‘100%’ focused on stopping Biden admin”

Mitch McConnell has one loathsome goal:
It’s to block Joseph Biden; the hole
In his soul’s been exposed,
Mitch’s mind’s long been closed;
V. Obama, he played the same role.

The State of the GOP (Limerick)

May 6th, 2021

The state of the GOP’s dire;
It’s led by a guy who’s a liar.
And its members must swallow
Trump’s bullshit and wallow
In muck to survive, or move higher.

Limerick Ode To Donald Trump’s “Barely-A-Blog”

May 5th, 2021

Do you remember all those claims that Trump would be launching a “social media platform” that would “redefine social media?” Well, it’s been launched … and it doesn’t:

Have you seen Trump’s new “platform?” It’s sad!
“Redefines” social medya? Egad!
A mere blog! That is all
That it is. So banal
And bare-bones – the mere inverse of rad!

Liz Cheney Clickbait (Limerick)

May 3rd, 2021

Will Liz Cheney be ousted from leadership?
That’s a question that media readership
Has been asking these days,
Lured by clickbaiting ways
Used by writers in columns and Tweetership.

Rudy’s Search Warrants; Better Late Than Never (Limerick)

May 1st, 2021

Rudy’s warrants were blocked by Bill Barr.
No surprise! We all knew Barr’d go far
To forestall any threat
To Trump, and abet
Donald’s pals. So for Barr, that’s on par.

Tucker Carlson Deceit (Limerick)

April 30th, 2021

Headline: “Fox News host Tucker Carlson claims making children wear masks is ‘abuse’”

A kid in a mask? That’s “abuse,”
According to Carlson, who’s loose
With his words on the air.
But Tuck doesn’t care:
“Call the cops,” like he says … then vamoose.

Liz v. Kevin (Limerick)

April 29th, 2021

Headline: “McCarthy won’t say if Cheney is ‘good fit’ for his team”

Is Liz a “good fit” for his team?
Rep. McCarthy won’t say, goes the meme.
Their spat’s over Trump,
Who Kev’s frightened to dump;
Liz won’t swim with his swamp of a stream.

The Right Has Lost Its Mind (Limerick)

April 27th, 2021

OMG! Joe’s about to ban meat!
He’ll decree that you only can eat
Stuff that grows in the ground.
No more beef-beer around!
(Them’s the claims from the wing-nut elite.)

Open Limerick To Liz Cheney

April 26th, 2021

Dear Liz Cheney, you’re driving me nuts,
Cuz your actions of late have shown guts
And a semblance of reason;
You’re e’en anti-treason —
Not your typical GOP putz.

For Republicans, Free Speech Is In The Ear Of the Hearer

April 22nd, 2021

Headline: “G.O.P. Bills Target Protesters (and Absolve Motorists Who Hit Them)”

Punish protestors (those who hate Trump)
And it’s fine if cars give ’em a bump.
Drive ’em all out of town.
Even run ’em all down.
That’s the GOP creed on the stump.

GOPers Target Maxine Waters

April 21st, 2021

Censure Waters? That sure takes some nerve!
But Republicans tried it with verve.
Though they’re outraged (they claim)
By her words, they di’n’t blame
Trump for HIS. (They grade Trump on a curve.)

Trump’s Donation Scam (Limerick)

April 5th, 2021

Headline: “How Trump Steered Supporters Into Unwitting Donations”

Donald Trump raked in money; a mint
From his fans, who had nary a hint
Of the sums they had given.
To shock they were driven
By boxes (pre-checked) and small print.

Gaetz In Dire Straits? (Limerick)

April 1st, 2021

Headline: “Matt Gaetz’s disastrous Tucker Carlson interview, explained”

The Republican Rep. Matthew Gaetz
Is accused of some underage dates.
His denials are odd.
(Even Tuck finds them flawed.)
Here’s hoping that prison awaits.

Republicans Still Gung-Ho About Guns (Limerick)

March 28th, 2021

GOPers treat gun regs with scorn.
(Hammer sales could be next, they forewarn.)
Tighten background checks? “Whoa!”
Ban assault weapons? “No!”
Yet their “thoughts and pray’rs flow,” as we mourn.

An Assault Weapons Ban? If Only… (Limerick)

March 24th, 2021

An assault weapons ban from the Sen?
Some Republican women and men
Should support such a bill.
But obstruct it they will,
As they’ve done yet again and again.

Sidney Powell’s Risible Defense (Limerick)

March 23rd, 2021

The basis for Sidney Powell’s defense in the Dominion defamation case is that her claims about Dominion were too wacko to be believed by reasonable people.

Sidney Powell’s defense to the suit
For defaming Dominion’s a hoot:
Since her claims re Dominion
Were dubious opinion,
The judge has to boot the dispute.

Malaise At Mar-a-Lago? (Limerick)

March 21st, 2021

Mar-a-Lago is partially closed,
Due to Covid. No shock: Trump’s opposed
To the wearing of masks;
In rebellion, he basks.
The result? His club’s rep has been hosed.

Scorning Mitch’s “Scorched-Earth” Threats (Limerick)

March 20th, 2021

The threats from McConnell are worth
Very little, excepting some mirth.
He’ll tie up the work
Of the Senate? That jerk
Has blocked bills from the birth of the earth.

The Bullies’ Bullseye On Asian-Americans (Limerick)

March 18th, 2021

You’re of Asian descent? Then watch out!
There’s a bullseye on you, without doubt,
Placed by Trump and his cronies —
Those bigots and phonies.
All it took was a “Kung Flu” Trump shout.

Dickish Sen. Wicker

March 10th, 2021

Headline: “Wicker Already Seeks Credit for Bill He Voted Against”

Dear Sen. Wicker, your vote was a “Nay”
On the Covid Relief Plan today.
So no credit to you
Is plausibly due,
And your bragging’s a two-faced display.
