Limerick Ode To Richard Mourdoch

Every time I think Republicans couldn’t possibly get crazier or more extreme about banning abortion, someone like Indiana’s Richard Mourdoch proves me wrong.

By now, the would-be senator’s bizarre comments about abortion and rape, and his non-apology apology are all too familiar. So is the fact that Romney has refused to withdraw his endorsement and his pro-Mourdoch ad.

So I’ll simply leave you with this serious limerick:

Limerick Ode To Richard Mourdoch
By Madeleine Begun Kane

By Mourdoch, I’m shocked — left agape:
He claims if you’re pregnant from rape,
It’s a God-given gift.
So how dare you be miffed!
Your future’s not yours to reshape.

    ugh…went political today myself….getting a little scarier by the day…just waiting to see what village idiot will speak up today…

    Some Republican guy named Mourdock
    Emerged from a cave a feared warlock
    He said from a rape
    No woman can escape
    Though conception may leave her in shock.

  3. John Sardo says:

    A life cannot be aborted
    Says Mourdock in words contorted
    God he avers is OK
    With a woman suffering each day
    Through a life that rape has distorted.
