Tweet Trips Shutdown Talks

The scent of bipartisanship was, as usual, fleeting,
As the Tweeter-in-Chief could, as usual, not stop tweeting.
So Democrats Nancy and Chuck
Told Trump to take a flying f**k,
And just blew off the White House government shutdown meeting.

Wagers of Sin

Ten Alabama pastors have come to the defense of Roy Moore,
Condemning the “War on Men” perpetrated by hussies and whores.
If you accuse them of hypocrisy,
They’ll accuse YOU of apostasy.
Defending creeps and Jesus — that’s what Alabama pastors are for!

Publishing Plagiarized Propaganda

Infowars is an ultra-right-wing propaganda institution,
And Alex Jones is well known for his fake news contributions.
But keeping fake content fresh is tough,
And you never seem to have enough,
Which is why he posted 1,000 Russian “news” articles without attribution.

His Nibs’ Ribs

We’re accustomed to Rand Paul, the Libertarian jackanape,
And many’s the time we’ve been tempted to crack his adamantine pate.
But in a spat with his neighbor,
Rand’s ribs were belabored.
Not over politics, but in a trivial dispute over landscape.

All Hat, No Brain

Rick Perry is dumb, but it’s not his fault,
And he blends right in with the GOP gestalt.
But Rick sounds like a super-moron,
When he says that by keeping the lights on,
Fossil fuels actually can prevent sexual assault.

Sex Toys for Tories

From Britain, we’re used to seeing some naughty bits,
And it’s easy to portray Parliament as a gaggle of twits.
But asking your assistant to buy sex toys
Is not just being “one of the boys,”
And neither is referring to her as “sugar tits.”

Flake’s Cake Is Baked

It’s a sure bet he wouldn’t have won, anyway,
So Jeff Flake’s name won’t be on the ballot come election day.
But if you’re going to go down,
You might as well tell the town
That Donald Trump is a danger to our democracy.

O, Righteous O’Reilly!

Bill O’Reilly is one sleazy, slimy sod
Whose sexual exploits cost him millions and his job.
But when asked who he blames
For his woes and his shame,
The Sultan of Sexual Harrassment exclaims, “I’m mad at God!”

Of Questionable Veracity

Although his prevarications may be serial,
His majestic pronouncements are empyreal.
And so what if he spouts stinking lies,
He’s not just one of the guys,
And you simply can’t question a four-star Marine general!

Never Too Soon

Just when we thought racial tensions couldn’t get tenser,
Any meet-up of white nationalists brings an element of danger.
Expecting things to get hot,
Our intrepid Gov. Rick Scott
Already declared a state of emergency for a Thursday speech by Richard Spencer.
