Brokered Convention Blues (Limerick)

Some Republicans are worried they’ll be saddled with a brokered convention. And Newt Gingrich’s statement is upping their anxiety:

With just one full day of campaigning left until the Florida primary and polls indicating that Mitt Romney has substantially widened his lead in the Sunshine State, Newt Gingrich told reporters Sunday he is prepared to fight out the Republican presidential nomination all the way to a brokered convention.

“We have no evidence yet that Romney anywhere is coming close to getting a majority and I think when you take all the non-Romney votes, it’s very likely that at the convention there will be a non-Romney majority and maybe a very substantial one. My job is to convert that into a Gingrich majority,” Gingrich said.

The thought of a brokered convention
Is creating Republican tension:
Will Mitt’s delegate count
Sufficiently mount
If Newt nixes a prez run suspension?

    Mitt Romney will never stop
    Blurting madness though he is a flop
    People rush out the door
    Saying we want no more
    For he can’t measure up to his pop

    The thought of a brokered convention
    Causes even more GOP dissension
    Republicans would kick Mitt in the tush
    If only they could vote for Jeb Bush
    Who might carry the party to redemption.

    When Mitt plays political poker,
    No doubt, he’s a hot one, a smoker.
    With his wealth, tho’, fo’ sho’,
    There’s a thing he can’t know:
    The meaning (if any) of “broker.”
