You know what's missing on the Intertubes? (well, if you read my title the cat is already out of the bag)

Haiku written for the right wing!

For some inexplicable reason the right has not yet embraced this literary form. Maybe that's because right-wingers can't use the left half of their brain. Or is it the right half? OK, they generally don't use either half. So being a generous soul, I'm offering some haiku written from a right-wing perspective to get them started.

SNIP

The words of Jesus
made clear in the holy scripture:
No stem cell research!

Mexico invades
they mow our lawns for a song
not sung in English

SNIP

Brave Republicans
protecting us with torture
Justified? Who cares?

...

where is your flag pin?
do you hate America?
must be a hippie

...

Fox News programming:
hosts yell louder than their guests
to avoid bias

...

McCain leads his flock
deep into the Bush pasture
watch out for cowpies

...

Damn! ideas gone
hard to write right wing haiku
devoid of substance

...

Please feel free to contribute your own ideas. Remember that a haiku consists of 5 syllables on the first line, 7 syllables on the second line, and 5 syllables again on the third line.
