No Penance For Dennis?

Tuesday, October 10th, 2006

Since blaming Democrats and the media didn’t stick, Denny Hastert is now trying to  shift blame to his staff. (Via Atrios) And that brings me to my latest limerick:

No Penance For Dennis?
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Hastert is blaming his staff,
But those in the know have to laugh.
Moms and dads are appalled
By his Foley bad call.
Does he think U.S. voters are daft?

Dirty Denny

Dirty Denny
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There once was a House Speaker Denny,
With character not worth a penny.
He failed to shield teens
From a boy-obsessed fiend.
Family values? He doesn’t have any.

Fordham Axed, Scapegoated To The Max

Wednesday, October 4th, 2006

Tom Reynolds would have us believe that the GOP House leaders would surely have done something about Foley’s House page proclivities long ago, if only evil Kirk Fordham (Reynolds’ chief of staff) hadn’t talked them out of it.  And that brings me to this limerick:

Fordham Axed, Scapegoated To The Max
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Congressman Reynolds’ charade
Is dumping Kirk Fordham, his aide.
He is shifting the blame
For the page abuse shame,
So House Leaders can justice evade.

Hastert Haiku

Hastert must resign
Because of his coverup.
No “buts,” no delay.

Ode To GOP Hypocrisy (Updated)

Sunday, October 1st, 2006

The House GOP leadership seems to be in a bit of trouble for covering up Mark Foley’s predatory Net communications.  So I dedicate my Ode To GOP Hypocrisy to House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert and Majority Leader John Boehner:

Ode To GOP Hypocrisy
By Madeleine Begun Kane

When accusations first arose
V. Foley in the House.
The GOP top leadership
Was quiet as a mouse.

Had Foley been a Democrat
Accused of heinous acts,
Those fellows would have  trumpeted
Their “values” to the max.

The scandal keeps getting worse.  Did the GOP know about Foley way back in 2001? It sure looks that way.
