Your Weekly Politickle: RUSSIAN

Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:

RUSSIAN
“Please, Vlady, let’s slow down the pace,
You really must give me more space,
Because after November
I’ll have time to dismember
What’s left of the United States.”

From the archive:

BILL IN A CHINA SHOP
Campaign prospects are more sunny
When the coffer’s full of money.
Leave it to Bill
To fill the till
With money that is funny!

CLINTONIAN DIPLOMACY
“We’ll supply whatsoever you need
To ensure your armed forces succeed,
And we won’t make a fuss
If you use them on us,
’Cause our sole motivation is greed.

RIADY OR NOT, HERE WE COME!
“Though funds that the DNC spent
Did arise in the Orient,
Our designs are disputable,
Lippo’s motives inscrutable –
Can you prove that we’re not innocent?”

SOLITARY ASSURED DESTRUCTION
Has Bill taken leave of his senses,
Dismantling all our defenses
And providing resources
To enemy forces
Regardless of consequences?

STAYTHERE KID
Before he had started to pack,
Bill’s visit to China caught flack,
But Clinton should know
He was welcome to go
Just so long as he didn’t come back!

THEY’RE PLAYING OUR SONG
Our nation is destined for grief
If our leader has no fixed belief
And conclusions are drawn
As to whose side he’s on
When China plays “Hail to the Chief.”

Last week’s limerick:

SAWBUCKS
“We affirm all the airheads who stop
For the beverages brewed in our shop:
If such customers think
That we’re green and we’re pink,
They will purchase more cups of our slop.”

Dmitry Is Delusional

The Museum of the Occupation of Latvia, an imposing black box of a building in the heart of Riga, tells the story of Latvia’s time inside the Soviet Union. The Soviet soldiers, glorified as heroes in Moscow, are portrayed as criminals and occupiers, no better than the Germans they defeated. But . . . Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has ordered the creation of a body with the Orwellian title of the Commission to Counteract the Falsification of History to the Detriment of Russian Interests. . . . Pressure to stop their much smaller neighbours telling recent history the way they see it has been building for some time. – The Independent

The Germans had to acknowledge and reject the crimes of their Nazi past; why shouldn’t the Russians be obliged to do the same with their longer and even more horrific history of mass murder and enslavement? Why should the Latvians and other East Europeans have to pretend that it never happened?
