Trump Blames Controversial KKK Comments On A "Faulty Earpiece"


His lying & spinning are stunning:
Could they on a dare cease?
It makes about as much sense to
Blame it on his hairpiece.

Supreme Court Justice Thomas Asks A Question In Court For The First Time In Ten Years


I haven’t found out what Clarence said
But I bet it’ll be a
Thought along the lines of, “Jeez: where
The heck is Scalia?”

 
 

The Donald Refuses To Disavow The David (Duke) And The KKK


In this press, this horrible racist gaff predictably
Soon exploded like several defective missiles ---
It signals the end of Trump, the end of the GOP
And the end of any future need for dog whistles.

2016, Donald Trump & The Presidency: Right Year … Right Guy … Wrong Job


He bitterly complains about everything:
Spiteful and petty, he really needs help.
C’mon --- isn’t he much better qualified
To be running for the President of Yelp?

Scalia Died While Vacationing With An Ancient Secret Fraternity Of Elite Hunters


Scalia wore a green robe with a cross
As did all his right wing buds ---
These Republican movers and shakers
Were just comical Elmer Fudds.

Ted Cruz --- Again --- Finishes Third, This Time In The Nevada Caucuses


I wonder if this one thought
Has been striking him:
What people most like about
Him is not liking him.

Uber Driver Who Went On Killing Spree In Michigan Will Be In Court Today


This may cause some annoying Millennials to
Do some serious and thorough debating
Before the next time they whine at their driver,
“Dude --- I am so giving you a bad rating.”

In related news, this kind of horrible event
Can possibly create a seismic shift
And give some of Uber’s current competitors
A much needed and definite Lyft.

Newly Discovered Photo Proves Sanders Was A Protester During The Civil Rights Movement


On this quite touchy topic, Bernie will no longer
Continue to be dimed and-or nickeled:
(Too bad his staff couldn’t find a snapshot where
It didn’t look like he was being tickled.)

The Former Governor Of Florida Drops Out Of The 2016 Race


Worst. Presidential. Campaign. Ever. This
Is how most historians will anoint
His bid --- he was a question mark starting
With JEB!’s exclamation point.

The Bush name took quite a beating. In his
Opponents, he didn’t inspire terror.
There’s really no other way to put this than
To just say it’s the end of an error.

The “Is Cruz Really An American?” Question Officially Heads To Illinois Court Tomorrow


If he’s not, the next Canadian election is
In 2019, by the way.
Perhaps he can modify his current slogan
To “TrusTed … eh?”

 

Attention All Republicans Dramatically Clutching Their Pearls Because The President Isn't Going To Scalia's Funeral


Are you familiar with Obama’s SOTU speeches?
Then I would suppose
You may perhaps recall that Nino --- as a rule ---
Failed to attend those.

 

Attention All Republicans Furious That Obama's Last Supreme Court Pick Won't Be A Worthy Successor To Scalia


Stop acting like you have some noble purpose and
Are objective and impartial ---
41 gave us an empty robe named Clarence Thomas
To replace Thurgood Marshall.

Thoughts After Looking At A Photo Of The GOP Presidential Frontrunner


Doesn’t Donald Trump, the narcissist
And most unrepentant braggart
Look like a pervy evangelist cousin of
Pervy evangelist Jimmy Swaggart?

What Obama Should Do About This Sudden Supreme Court Vacancy


My wife had this singular suggestion
That (understandably) will
Make Republicans crazy --- replace
Justice Scalia with Anita Hill.

L.A. Times Columnist Explains How Scalia’s Passing Impacts 2016 Race


The size of the Democratic base is growing
Because their main priorities
Have been looking out for the rights of gays
Women as well as minorities.

The size of the Republican base is shrinking
Since they’ve mostly set their sights
On the part of the electorate who can best
Be described as conservative whites.

Even if the GOP-controlled House and Senate
Won’t let a new justice enter
The Supreme Court, their delaying tactics put
This issue front and center.

*

In the exclusive, segregated part of heaven
Poor Nino must be feeling so bereft
To realize his departure will make the court
Probably move a bit more to the left.

Thoughts About The Most Recent Republican Debate


Rubio picked the worst time to falter.
Donors hope this will stop --- get
A look at all of those photos online
Where you can see his flop sweat.


Christie devoured Rubio like a gallon of
Ice cream from the fridge --- Fate
May be in his corner but there are still
Ongoing problems with Bridge-gate.

Jeb! seemed worthy of his exclamation point
Which was kind of stunning: wait
Would it actually be possible for him to have
His Mom as his VP running mate?

How did the governor of Ohio do? Well, he
Needed a good night. The basic
Consensus is that he had precisely that, so
Don’t put a fork just yet in Kasich.

Cruz was sorry for his Iowa dirty trick but still
Seemed unsympathetic
A most curious stunt to pull off precisely when
You’re being apologetic.

Despite punches from Jeb! Trump remains on top.
This last debate for damn sure
Shows the GOP nomination is still up for grabs ---
Keep your eyes on New Hampshire.

New Question For The New 2016 GOP Frontrunner


If Cruz is so tight with God whose
Backing he apparently never lacks
Why didn't Ted hit Him up for a loan
Instead of asking Goldman Sachs?
