Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
If a spectacle’s what you are seeking,
And to see a pretentious prig freaking,
A glib gabber tight-lipped
As he’s thrown off his script:
Interrupt when Obama is speaking.
From the archive:
You’re not really “transparent” at all:
When you’re asked for your records, you stall;
You keep everything hidden,
Public access forbidden.
Mr. President, tear down this wall!
(DOING) THE OBAMA
Two steps forward and bow like Barack.
Arms akimbo, a single step back.
Now a shuffle in place
With a smile on your face.
Two steps forward and bow like Barack . . .
Practice patronizing pleas,
Urge adults to “eat their peas,”
Cultivate a flair
For pure hot air,
Now you speak Obamaese!
How he’ll flatter, fawn, and fuss,
Make himself obsequious!
To tyrants alone
The man is prone:
Never will he bow to us.
While we hang on his every last word,
Mesmerized by the mishmash we’ve heard,
What the dummy should say
And our president’s Mortimer Snerd.
BARACK AROUND THE CLOCK
Get ready, Blogger Nation,
For the pettifog-oration:
Cue the abstractions
And the cultic reactions!
It’s Obama’s inauguration!
Last week’s limerick:
WITNESS FOR THE PERSECUTION
“Can I get a tattoo, Dad?” said she.
“It can be quite expensive,” said he.
“Why not wait and emboss
On your forearm a cross?
Let the government do it for free.”
