Open Limerick To Newt Gingrich

Newt Gingrich is still out on his I didn’t say what I said tour. He even tried to get back in Rush Limbaugh’s good graces by claiming his Meet The Press Paul Ryan plan comments had nothing to do with Paul Ryan or his plan.

Open Limerick To Newt Gingrich
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Newt, campaign’s over — fini!
I’ll admit it — I say this with glee.
You insulted Paul Ryan,
And nobody’s buyin’
Your stories — you’re no nominee.

(Lots more Newt Gingrich humor here.)

    Mad Kane,
    You’re a great poet
    But I didn’t know it
    How did Newt blow it?

    Thanks Robert. Re Newt, basically he went on Meet The Press and when asked about Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan (which would turn Medicare into a voucher system) he criticized the plan and referred to it negatively as rightwing social engineering. (Which it is.) The problem is Paul Ryan is a God to Republican politicians and Republican commentators, and all but four of the House Republicans voted for his plan. So now Newt is scrambling to pretend he never said what everyone knows he said, blaming “gotcha” questions, etc. If you read my previous Newt Gingrich limericks like this one, you’ll see more info and relevant links.

    I’ve seen plenty of life’s contradictions
    of manipulative political transitions
    but with their heads in the sand
    Newt Gingrich fans
    obviously live for the truth of magicians

    I’m so over come with joy that big fat Newt blew himself of the water that I’ll fore go a limerick response. Well, one second thought:

    So long, goodbye, adios old Newt
    You’re just too much of a really old coot
    It was your own big mouth
    That drove your ratings south
    Now your gone, and who gives a hoot?

  5. I find it a mystery
    with our shared history
    of ‘Toad of Toad Hall’ and the like,
    that a man can find fame
    with an amphibian’s name –
    for in England they hide
    from the light . . .
