Trump-Sycophant McCarthy Can’t Handle The Truth (Limerick)

Wednesday, July 21st, 2021

Headline: “McCarthy pulls his 5 GOP members from 1/6 committee after Pelosi rejects 2 of his picks”

When McCarthy named Jordan and Banks
To the One/Six Committee, “No thanks!”
Was the answer he got
And WANTED; his plot
Was to pull his five picks from the ranks.

Republican Quandary (Limerick)

Tuesday, July 6th, 2021

Headline: “GOP 2024 hopefuls face challenge: Not upsetting Trump”

“The Hill” tells us something we know
About GOP prez-hopefuls’ woe:
They must NOT rile the prickly
Ex-prez, yet act quickly.
Avoid venom from Trump? Ho, ho, ho!

Joe Manchin’s Fantasy (Limerick)

Sunday, June 6th, 2021

Headline: “Fox News’ Chris Wallace Confronts Joe Manchin Over ‘Being Naive’ About Bipartisan Cooperation”

How can Manchin remain so deluded?
Were he lucid, he SHOULD have concluded
That bipartisanship
Is a fantasy trip
That will leave Biden’s vision denuded.

Trump’s Latest Lie (Limerick)

Thursday, June 3rd, 2021

Reinstatement will happen this year
In August, claims Trump. So I fear
That derangement won’t end
And our nation can’t mend
While treachery’s still his career.

Our Nixed Commission Fix (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021

Our land’s in a terrible fix
When Republican Senators nix
A bipartisan group
Meant to get us the scoop
On what happened this year on 1/6.

Trumps Dog-GONE Blog (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021

Headline: “Trump blog page shuts down for good”

Big news: Seems the Donald has dumped
His new blog because int’rest has slumped.
Even fans found it boring.
(And some were caught snoring.)
It appears that the Donald’s been trumped.

Isn’t The Trump Grand Jury Grand? (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 26th, 2021

Will Trump’s CFO drop a dime
On the Donald? It’s surely high time!
A grand jury’s convened,
So here’s hoping that fiend
Is convicted of many a crime.

GOP Pols think Trump’s still relevant, but IS he? (Limerick)

Saturday, May 22nd, 2021

If you’re wond’ring how Trump’s blog has fared,
Donald’s blog posts are NOT widely shared.
His traffic has slumped,
And his fans don’t seem pumped.
Could it be they’re no longer ensnared?

Trump Lashes Out Against Letitia James (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 19th, 2021

After learning that New York AG Letitia James is pursuing a criminal investigation into the Trump Organization, and that she’s working with Manhattan DA Cy Vance, Donald Trump posted a lengthy blog rant, which could have benefited from paragraphing … and sanity.

Donald Trump seems distressed and upset.
It appears he is starting to fret
That he’ll spend his last days
In prolonged prison stays.
James and Vance pose a serious threat!

Ousted Liz Cheney, Still Speaking Out (2-Verse Limerick)

Wednesday, May 12th, 2021

Headline: “Cheney, stripped of leadership position, vows to keep Trump from returning to presidency”

Liz Cheney’s been rudely expelled
From the leadership post that she held.
Now the House GOP
Is hoping to be
Free to parrot Trump’s lies, with Liz quelled.

But this ouster won’t stop her from speaking;
She’ll keep Trump-centric BS critiquing.
Liz will fight back with vigor,
Her megaphone bigger,
As she calls out the havoc Trump’s wreaking.

Limerick Ode To Kevin McCarthy

Monday, May 10th, 2021

Headline: “Kevin McCarthy is pushing Liz Cheney out for saying almost exactly what he said after January 6”

Kev McCarthy’s politically hollow;
There is only one person he’ll follow,
And it’s scam-meister Trump!
You won’t ass-kiss that lump?
That’s one “crime” Kev refuses to swallow.

McConnell v. Biden (Limerick)

Friday, May 7th, 2021

Headline: “McConnell says he’s ‘100%’ focused on stopping Biden admin”

Mitch McConnell has one loathsome goal:
It’s to block Joseph Biden; the hole
In his soul’s been exposed,
Mitch’s mind’s long been closed;
V. Obama, he played the same role.

The State of the GOP (Limerick)

Thursday, May 6th, 2021

The state of the GOP’s dire;
It’s led by a guy who’s a liar.
And its members must swallow
Trump’s bullshit and wallow
In muck to survive, or move higher.

Rudy’s Search Warrants; Better Late Than Never (Limerick)

Saturday, May 1st, 2021

Rudy’s warrants were blocked by Bill Barr.
No surprise! We all knew Barr’d go far
To forestall any threat
To Trump, and abet
Donald’s pals. So for Barr, that’s on par.

GOPers Target Maxine Waters

Wednesday, April 21st, 2021

Censure Waters? That sure takes some nerve!
But Republicans tried it with verve.
Though they’re outraged (they claim)
By her words, they di’n’t blame
Trump for HIS. (They grade Trump on a curve.)

Trump’s Donation Scam (Limerick)

Monday, April 5th, 2021

Headline: “How Trump Steered Supporters Into Unwitting Donations”

Donald Trump raked in money; a mint
From his fans, who had nary a hint
Of the sums they had given.
To shock they were driven
By boxes (pre-checked) and small print.

Sidney Powell’s Risible Defense (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021

The basis for Sidney Powell’s defense in the Dominion defamation case is that her claims about Dominion were too wacko to be believed by reasonable people.

Sidney Powell’s defense to the suit
For defaming Dominion’s a hoot:
Since her claims re Dominion
Were dubious opinion,
The judge has to boot the dispute.

Dickish Sen. Wicker

Wednesday, March 10th, 2021

Headline: “Wicker Already Seeks Credit for Bill He Voted Against”

Dear Sen. Wicker, your vote was a “Nay”
On the Covid Relief Plan today.
So no credit to you
Is plausibly due,
And your bragging’s a two-faced display.

Neanderthal Limerick

Thursday, March 4th, 2021

Headline: “Biden calls states’ relaxing virus restrictions, including mask mandates, ‘Neanderthal thinking’”

Relaxing state Covid restrictions
Conflicts with the science predictions.
It’s “Neanderthal thinking,”
Says Biden, not shrinking
From words that condemn derelictions.

What Will It Take For Pence To Stop Repeating Trump’s Lies? (Limerick)

Thursday, March 4th, 2021

My latest limerick was inspired by a recent Mike Pence op-ed in The Daily Signal. Here’s how he begins: “After an election marked by significant voting irregularities and numerous instances of officials setting aside state election law, I share the concerns of millions of Americans about the integrity of the 2020 election.”

Dear Mike Pence, I am forced to surmise
That you haven’t stopped backing Trump’s lies.
He endangered your life!
Yet your statements are rife
With Trump myths. That’s bizarre and unwise.
