Ann Coulter's such a backwards lass
Farts from her mouth; talks out her ass.
Sarah Palin, Levi Johnston:
Folks in Alaska have it rough.
Sarah Palin pulled out too soon,
Levi Johnston not soon enough.
Romney in Boston once did live,
Mitt, the myth, in Mormon corsets,
Put the Con in Conservative,
And the ass in Massachusetts.
Sen. John Kyl, Rep. John Boehner:
Sen. John Kyle of Arizona,
Got in bed with Rep. John Boehner.
The Stimulous Plan made them pout
So they pulled a Palin and pulled out.

NEWS ITEM - April 7, 2009 - In what some are calling a textbook case of blatant hypocrisy, Republican strategist Carl Rove called Vice President Biden a "liar" over Biden's claim to have scolded former President Bush in a private meeting.
Ignoring contemporaneous reports and historical records pertaining to former Vice President Dick Cheney, Rove said "You should not exaggerate and lie like this when you are vice president of the United States."
"Biden's lying," sure sounds insane,
‘Til you ponder the source of it.
It does explain Rove-Bush's brain.
One-half brain equals one-half wit.
Sen. John Ensign, Nevada:
Nevada Senator John Ensign, a staunch supporter of the religious right, was forced to admit having an affair with an aide who is also the wife of a staffer. He also employed the son of both on his staff. Although he attacks the liberal Eastern establishment, he does have one thing in common with New Yorkers. He likes to play around in the Hamptons (which, as luck would have it, is the name of the aide, the staffer and the son).
I'm a Hamptons' fan, the senator said,
Some work on my staff, and some I embed.
He's Back. Resurrection of an old story because the old story is new again. Turns out the senator found a job for the husband as a lobbyist, the one-year rule not withstanding.
Rep. Lynn Jenkins, Kansas
When Kansas Rep. Lynn Jenkins
Weirds out with “a great white hope,”
She may not see de-meaning,
But de-mirror can show her de-dope.
This first-time congresswoman called for "a great white hope" to help Republicans defeat Barack Obama. She says she didn't know that the phrase has racist origins. I dunno, back in elementary school I was always told to look up a word or phrase before I used it in a conversation or an essay or political rally.
Betsy McCaughey, Fool and Fooler:
Betsy McCaughey lies herewith
Antiphrasis of her own myth.
'Death Panel' myth maker Betsy McCaughey who claimed that Democratic health care reforms will create "death panels" became the subject of widespread ridicule after appearing on "The Daily Show" Thursday where Jon Stewart skewered her positions on health care reform.
Have I got this story straight?
Betsy McCaughey is such a liar
Her death panel myths caught on fire
With all real news but the one that's fake
Yet, real, when Jon Steward fires her?
John Mackkay, CEO, Whole Foods:
Is Crow a Gourmet Dish at Whole Foods?
Whole Foods CEO John Mackkay waded into the healthcare fray, writing an op ed piece in the Wall Street Journal that attacked many of the perceived benefits of the Democratic drive to cover all Americans. His views did not sit well with his previously loyal customer base made up of a large number of liberal patrons who now promoting a boycott of his stores. He had to have been drinking some of his own Whole Foods Fruity-Aid.
Whole Foods McKay stirs health care pot,
Feeds loyal fans poppycock.
He's had his say, so now guess what:
Whole foods rot if fans boycott.
At Your Beck'n Cull
Glen Beck deploring violence,warned his disciples that "just one lunatic, like Timothy McVeigh, could ruin everything." In a skit three days later, he gave a glass of wine to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,saying, "I put poison in your -- no, I -- I look forward to all the policy discussions that we're supposed to have."
Glenn Beck who yet professes calm
Implores his flock to do no harm
Does poisoned wine belie aplomb?
On recent shows, Glenn Beck has been consumed by the tenuous or tangential "connections" he alone seems to see between ACORN and the following people and groups: AmeriCorps, AARP, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, PRLDEF, and SEIU. Beck has also fearmongered about ACORN while attacking President Obama and his policies.
Science says an acorn's a nut what
Turns into an oak. A Beck's what
An ACORN turns into a nut.
The Drudge Report, while linking to an article on discussions about a possible excise tax on cosmetic surgery, posted photos of Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on July 27 alongside a headline stating, "Don't go there:? Dems Eye 10%?Tax on Botox, Cosmetic Surgery." On Fox News' Fox & Friends the next morning, Fox News host Glenn Beck parroted Drudge's smear, stating, "We should ask Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi how much they would pay for that face."
When Druge posts smears he fails to check,
Beck does, too, which goes to prove,
Drudge rhymes with sludge,
and Beck with dreck.
A government that represses dissent
Is a government pressing its descent.
The greater there is uncertainty
The more dogmatic the certainty.
Praise from an enemy, delight.
From a friend, delight. Than take flight.
No harm will come to your reputation
Unless, of course, you provide the weapon.
