Limerick Ode to Clueless Rick Perry

Poor Rick Perry is having a rough time. First, he’s forced to walk back his pro-Birther “I don’t have a clue about … what his birth certificate says” comments. Next, he’s reduced to silence on Fox Business when told he sounds “like one of those Occupy Wall Streeters.”

Limerick Ode To Clueless Rick Perry
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Perry’s not-a-clue line caused ado.
Anti-Birthers are starting to stew.
But in Perry’s behalf,
It’s not really a gaffe
Cuz it’s true: Perry hasn’t a clue.

    Perry’s “not-a-clue” line caused ado
    The noise grew and it grew and it grew.
    His path got more slippery
    With floppery-flippery:
    His campaign has stepped in the poo.

    Rick Perry just hasn’t a clue
    and delights the whole birther crew.
    This means, of course,
    that his personal horse
    is lame and is destined for glue.

    He hasn’t a clue about a lot of things. For example, he believes that the earth was created by some metaphysical entity five or six thousand years ago in just six days. He believes that there will be a second coming of a syncretistic myth called Jesus Christ, an individual who never actually existed, and that his return will be presaged by something called “the Rapture.” He believes is talking snakes and talking in tongues. He believes in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. To say he hasn’t a clue is the Understatement of the Millenium.

    I was amused to read that Rick Perry wants an income tax form that will fit on a postcard. Over at Bryan’s place, Why Now?, I remarked that the contents of Perry’s mind would fit on a postcard, with room to spare for the stamp and the signature.

    Bryan replied “Yeah, Steve… John Hancock.”

    There once was a bloke named Perry
    he came from that place called Derry
    because he didn’t have a clue
    don’t shout! What’s new.
    You can find ’em one a penny on the telly.
