Limericks of the Damned

Cokie Roberts called going to Hawaii (i.e. America’s Middle Income Paradise) "exotic" even though most of Obama’s significant non-nuclear family lives there. Implying some sort of upper crust elitism the average American cannot understand.

Where was Cokie while Obama was in our 50th state?


Yes, Nantucket, one of America’s wealthiest enclaves — it’s like the Hamptons with less horsecrap.

But apparently no lack of bullcrap.

And it also requires, nay, DEMANDS another thoroughly American tradition be used to sum up this bit of information:

There was an ol’ biddy on Nantucket
Whose Journalism came with a bucket
She could afford a lobster roll
By always playing concern troll
And now, my scorn, she can suck it.

Feel free to add your own limericks about Cokie, just keep them relatively clean — even though that is truly un-American.

Who Is Orson Swindle And Why The Hell Should We Believe Him?



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
