About Me

I'm an old professor, having taught at the university level in Louisiana for over 30 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetrythough many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).

"No habla espanol, motherf*cker!" . . . Please come CAPTION Trump spokesperson Scottie Hughes!!!

Scottie ("In for a dime, in for a liar.") Hughes is saying: "I think it was real lame, Wolff, when Tim Kane started speaking Spanish during his announcement speech. . . . First of all I couldn't understand it. . . . Second, it implies that only Democrats care about Latinos because no self-respecting Republican would waste the time it takes to learn that childish language. . . . And third, it sounded like the chitterings of a meth-addled squirrel with a mouthful of Tostitos covered in hot cheese. . . . Give me a break!"


Above CAPTION based on the following CNN clip at Huffington Post:


"My baby teeth will be like spiritual relics one day!". . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!!

Donald ("I don't, but it I did have flatulence, it would be as sweet as a violet's breath") Trump is saying: "Listen, Todd, nobody has more respect for the Constitution than I do. . . . Nobody! . . . Zip! . . . I not only believe it but I dearly love it and will defend it until my last breath, believe me. . . . But the Constitution is not a suicide pact. . . . So if it seems to allow for speech which is inappropriate, well. . . . But remember, 'to the last breath,' Todd, 'to the last breath.'"


Above CAPTION based on the following NBC interview this a.m.. (7.24.16):


Just when you thought the sleaze might stop. . . . Please come CAPTION Phil Robertson!!!

Phil (Patriarch of *uck Dynasty) Robertson is saying: "Then Orin Hatch, he says to me, he says, 'We don't wait till they're twenty where I come from, either.' And at that moment I bonded with him. . . . So I said, 'Yeah, where I come from, they could be grandmothers at twenty.' . . . Then he got real quiet, and didn't say another word, before he walked away. . . . That's how I know he bonded back with me. . . . It was great!"


Above CAPTION based on the following News Hounds story with a healthy clip ("healthy" in the sense of length, you understand):


"The bowel movement is the message." . . . Please come CAPTION Roger Ailes!!!

Roger ("Number one ladies' man") Ailes is saying: "At least I never made a pass at Greta Van Susteren."

"Well, if it talks like a duck. . . ." Please come CAPTION Phil Robertson!!

Phil ("I lost the family tooth") Robertson is saying: "Well, Stew, I'll tell ya. . . . I like Donald Trump 'cause he's jus' like one of us. . . . For one, he talks like one of us, . . . you know, off the top of his head. . . . Second, he knows how to keep his women in line. . . . And then, same as me, he's got himself a dynasty . . . You can sure tell when someone's just like your one of your own people."


Above CAPTION based on the following News Hounds story:


The liar's lyre. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald J. Trump!!!

Donald ("The country is doomed without me") Trump is saying: "Believe me, ladies and gentlemen, I am morally and psychologically incapable of lying. . . . Even if I tried to lie I'd have to tell you I was doing so. . . . And there's no better proof than that. . . . You can't argue with logic!"

Second verse, same as the first. . . . Please come CAPTION Ted Cruz!!!!

Ted ("With friends like me, who needs enemas?") Cruz is saying: "If it wasn't for Don the Con and his thugs and mindless followers, I would have been the nominee! . . . Then instead of discord and animosity, I could have brought the Party together. . . . Deceitful Donald and his hoards of vermin and cretins will never do it. . . . Only I have that unique ability!"


Above CAPTION based on Cruz's performance at the RNC Convention 7.20.16 , a relevant clip of which can be seen at:


Entire speech at LiveLeak:


"I think I'll change my name to 'Melania.'" . . . Please come CAPTION Megyn Kelly!!!

Megyn ("Do you notice what I'm wearing?") Kelly is saying: "Sure, Ailes propositioned me. The reason I didn't come forward until now? . . . Well, even though I thought his raw hamburger meat was pretty disgusting, his waddles could wax me down and wipe me off, if you know what I mean. . . . Every night I'd dream of car washes."


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters story with a health CNN clip:


"They're selling postcards of the hanging . . ." Please come CAPTION Ben Carson!!!

Ben ("I don't even know what dissembling means!") Carson is saying: "Back in Arkansas, I hear she would slip away into the woods every night of the full moon. . . . But it wasn't so easy after Bill became Governor and then President, so they would dedicate a special room for him to visit each month like in the basement where no one outside would smell the sulfur."


Above CAPTION based on this node of self-deceit's performance at the RNC Convention 7.19.16 which can in small (but relevant) be seen at the Time site:


"Here comes the blind commissioner . . ." Please come CAPTION Chris Christie!!!

Chris ("I hear Pence might back out") Christie is saying: "And I don't think it is going too far to say that if that witch could see herself as she actually is for one moment, she'd immediately try to commit suicide! . . . There are not enough hyperboles to tell how hideous Hillary is. . . . And I haven't even started!"


Above CAPTION based on this buffoon's performance at the RNC Convention. 7.19.16 as seen at Real Clear Politics:
