Some handle it gingerly, with a simple “No comment.”
Others play it coy, while some feign abashment.
But never risk admission
While masking naked ambition,
And always, always deny you’re running for president.
The midterms are nigh here, and we just realized
That American politics have been bumpkinized!
They’re all professional posers
Posing as rank amateurs.
It’s as if every candidate has been Sarah Palin-ized.
