Yay! (Celebratory Limerick)

Congratulations to Barack Obama and Joe Biden on their reelection! And yes, it was a mandate.

Yay! (Celebratory Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There’s a thrill in the air. Can you feel it?
Prez Obama has won — can’t repeal it!
The fight was a tough one—
A falsehood-filled rough one.
But despite tries to steal it, Dems seal it.

P.S. Nate Silver was right.

    Elephant Hockey?

    Just perhaps it wasn’t dumb luck
    the other candidate ran a muck
    tried to reach the goal
    with his head in a hole
    his rhetoric, too slick for the puck

    Some would say it’s just luck
    That Obama is now a lame duck
    But those in the know
    Don’t say “told you so”
    They’re just glad to be done with the muck (slinging)

    There is a thrill in the air I can feel it
    They’re still mucking about in Florida would if they could repeal it
    But the people sang loud and the people sang clear
    The values hard won held close and shone dear
    Hope and US commitment strong and united and stayed here!
