Republicans: Stuck Between Their Crock And A Hard Place

When it comes to health reform, Republicans are stuck between their crock and a hard place.

Repeal (requiring a veto-proof majority as long as Obama is president) is virtually impossible, not to mention unpopular. But the very GOP lies that came close to blocking health reform have brainwashed the Republican base into demanding its rescission. Consequently, many Republican leaders feel forced to perpetuate their doomsday and Armageddon claims and fight for repeal, even though they know it’s a lost cause.

That brings me to my latest limerick:

Republicans: Stuck Between Their Crock And A Hard Place
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The GOP base screams “Repeal!”
And Republicans pledge to with zeal.
Cuz they set their own trap
With their factual gap:
Nixing laws that have widespread appeal.

    Now the GOP shows they’re sore losers,
    Turning violent to look like big bruisers,
    Wing-nuts throw notes on bricks,
    Ramping up dirty tricks.
    Put them in the back seats of cops’ cruisers.

  2. Realist says:

    Republicans better take stock
    Lest voters start cleaning their clock
    Electoral hell
    Is much worse, they tell
    Than Sisyphus rolling the rock
