Productive Pelosi

I'm with Gail Collins.

Give me one savvy productive Pelosi

over the whole swamp of puerile Palindom any day.

Bogged Down

Don't worry, small people, your troubles are few.
The BP oil execs care about you. Truly. They do.

They said so at the White House. They said so on the Hill.
They said so at the microphone. What's this? There is a bill?

They think about you day by day
While they wile away

Their hours on their yachts
Contemplating neither nail nor cog.

Yachts named Bob that sail around the Wight
Leaving deepwater thoughts to another's plight

They lap up apologia from Joe and from Michele.
They jet deluxe not hike you know, pip pip and whatthehell.

For who would begrudge poor Tony's life
Doubtless with a charming wife.

Yet for all their naughts
The Gulf becomes the Bog.

Tweedle dumb.

Tweedle dumber.

The only chumps are those who still listen to...and vote for...these twits.
Go, Tarryl.

Dear Calyfornuh...

Puh-lease, no.

Please do not send Catty Carly Fiorina to the U.S. Senate.

Just because she's got hair issues—what's up with that fiddling with her own curls, anyway?—doesn't mean we want to have to put up with 'em, or her, for the next six years.

Please, California, make things left again.

We elected a grown-up.

He gets problems solved.

He works to pass challenging legislation.

But the media wants toddler temper tantrums.
How do we unelect the media?

Swaggering Simpleton

Dubya's admission raises nary a ripple in the mainshill media.

Media loves them some conflict, some say. But even war crimes are OIYAR.
