The GOP Is Afraid "Obamacare" Will Burden The Insurance Industry?

Yep, those right-wingers insist this will wind up
Just being a kind of worst-case
Scenario but didn't companies like AIG burden
The rest of us in the first place?

This Just In On The Trayvon Martin Case

The embattled Sanford police continue their leaks:
They won't let up and won't cease lies.

Was once up for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Show Biz Icon Daily Variety Looks For New Owner

Yes, it's news that it's for sale but
The jeers it had to undergo
For too-close ties to CAA meant
That it sold out years ago.

Trayvon Martin Update

Prosecutor says George Zimmerman could walk.
I knew that this could happen but one
Should consider the current climate and realize
That a far wiser move would be to run.

Dick Cheney Got A New Heart?

So wrong on so many levels, this is a man
Who sold American decency down the river
As bad a medical maneuver as the time
Mickey Mantle was wrongly given a new liver.

Troubled Ballplayer Matt Bush, While Drunk, Crashes Into Man On Motorcycle

In baseball, the hit and run
Can be fun.
But in the real world as such
Not so much.

Little-Known Fact About The Town Where Trayvon Martin Was Murdered

Sanford is located in Central Florida. So, what
Kind of history have they got there?
Charlize Theron won an Oscar playing a killer.
Part of "Monster" was shot there.

He's worth major bucks just like
But as a candidate has to face the
Of being even less exciting than

What I Learned About The Financial Collapse On "Moyers and Company"

Ex-Senator Byron Dorgan may still be unaware that
He has the world's worst toupee upon his head ---
But he's one of the few politicians who knew if we got
Rid of Glass-Steagall, our economy could be dead.

By now have fled states
That watch the most porn:
They're called Red States.

Tips If You Get Into Big Legal Trouble (Vol. #17)

First Blagojevich, then the former Rutgers' student.
What's the lesson from both? We feel
Confident the one thing to be learned from them is:
Whenever you can ... take the plea deal.

A Thought About Obama Praising Prime Minister Cameron's Skill As A Parent

David has cut funding for special needs kids ---
Yes, this move was pretty ballsy
Especially when you consider his late son, Ivan,
Had suffered from cerebral palsy.

Palin: Obama Twisted Her Words In New TV Ad

Sarah, with all due (lack of) respect
Your ignorant words are often resisting
Making anything close to any sense
And don't need any additional twisting.

This Just In: Cash-Poor L.A. Little League Team Turns Down Money From Strip Club

They changed their mind. I guess accepting
A donation from this X-rated place stuck out
As bad PR. Oh well: like nerdy guys who try
To ask out strippers, the team just struck out.

Jet Strip, A Gentleman's Club, Makes Donation That Saves L.A. Kids' Baseball Team

For the Lennox Little League, this was better
Than back-to-back round trippers.
(Feel free to add your own double entendres
Regarding baseball and strippers.)

Can't think of any? Okay. Not a problem.
Inspiration can be one of life's hassles ---
Let's just say that all of the team's shirts
Were smartly accessorized with tassels.

"Kill Bill" Actor Arrested For Domestic Violence

A drunken Michael Madsen hit his teenage son ---
What a terrible & utterly appalling thing to have done.

It's dismaying to see such father to son aggression.
Who knew he did such a good Ryan O'Neal impression?

Cutting Through Sarah Palin's Indignation Hoopla

She says HBO's "Game Change" is a pack of lies
And complaints have been compiled, yet
Why haven't we heard from any of her lawyers
About a libel lawsuit having been filed yet?

The GOP Since Obama's Election

"Get mad everybody! Scream & yell!"
They sure knew how to agitate.
But later on when 2012 rolled around
They forgot to get a candidate.

Gingrich's One Financial Backer Is Billionaire Sheldon Adelson

This is just so wrong on so many levels
From any possible angle that you may look.
If he were a painting, he'd be a forgery.
If Newt were a novel, he'd be a vanity book.

Oxnard Middle School Science Teacher Suspended For Moonlighting In Porn

She appeared in a film called "Sausage Pizza."
I don't mean to be a contrarian
But diet experts would have preferred that
Pizza to have been vegetarian.

Latest hits
And makes me want to buy Rush's
Greatest hits.

For Your March Reading List --- Hope: A Tragedy

Shalom Auslander's new book
Has a hook that's quite dramatic:
A modern guy discovers that
Anne Frank is living in his attic.

The premise took my breath away
And into my head was hurled
The thought that yes, I guess there
Are still new ideas in the world.

For the Republican party, is this really
Good, better, best:
A dim Mormon, a fat Georgian and a loon
In a sweater vest?

Gingrich Says Georgia Win Will Launch Southern Sweep

This bold claim isn't one of
Newt's better epiphanies:
He also thinks they actually
Serve breakfast at Tiffany's.

Is Limbaugh's Career In Jeopardy?

Fans say no and insist his enemies attack him
With liberal lies and they often like to henpeck
Just like bitter wives but they all should recall
The decline & fall of the like-minded Glenn Beck.

Advertisers Flee Toxic Radio Host

Think about Limbaugh for a while and
Soon you're
Feeling grateful that there isn't a Rush

Rush's Feeble Apology For Calling Law Student A "Slut"

He spends all of his days spewing bile
Which shoots in the air like geysers.
What he meant between the lines was,
"I'm sorry ... I'm losing advertisers."


Republicans insist Andrew Breitbart
(This takes a great deal of guile)
Was like Abbie Hoffman or Jerry Rubin
Just from the other side of the aisle.

This kind of disingenuous revisionism
May sound good off the cuff
But fails to make much sense because
It's not thought through enough.

Breitbart would've given Abbie & Jerry
Sharp elbows and a shove
Far too concerned with both war & hate
To ponder peace & love.

The old school icon he resembles more
With vicious rages and sorties
Is Joseph McCarthy who also died quite
Young while still in his forties.

He passed away (wait for it) of "natural causes."
Don't waste your breath ---
Those lies that rode shotgun for his entire life
Persist even after his death.
