1. Only elitists use haiku...
I much prefer the down scale Limerick ;)

a crusty old coot named McCain
was running a shitty campaign
he selected some chick
an unqualified prick
and saw his chances get flushed down the drain...

6. that's great!

I don't agree that haikus are elitist, though, just another form.

4. Yet another
Democrats will win
Republicans will suffer
They had it coming.

Victory Comes Soon.

7. Barack Obama
McCain is mere stagnation
Vote for new vision


not so good, I like haikus about nature better.


I thought this site was funny.

10. An attempt...
A very old man
Wanting to be President
Can't stay up past 9


And, a limerick...


We like to call him McSame,
For his VP he picked out some dame,
The polls have since slid
On his presidential bid
He might want to try changing his name.


And, since I'm on a roll...


Ricky's in league with old Freddie,
Carly's gaffe made things unsteady,
He skipped out on Dave?
Campaigns in the grave,
And he's claiming Obama ain't ready?
