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.
Today, the Senate’s engaged in its budget vote-a-rama,
A most clamorous scene of high crimes and low drama.
They vote on amendments
Not understanding their contents,
But it still ain’t a budget ’til it’s approved by Obama.
