(Remove Boxer, Pelosi and Reid. Vote to stop Socialism.)
I do not venture into this page very often and in fact hardly ever.
Still I cannot help but wonder if any FReepers have any sort of insight to Matthew Arnold's work titled the “Dover Beach” and later spoofed by Anthony Hecht in his work “The Dover Bitch.”
One about war and separation, the other mocking life in general it seems to me.
In my very first English Course in College, I was introduced to these works. Now more than 30 years following, I reflect on them occasionally.
Point is, Christine O'Donnell out of Dover, Delaware is being maligned left and right.
No other poem comes to mind more easily than the first that I had to scrutinize so long ago.

Autumn leaves tumble down,
Autumn leaves crumble down, Flaking and shaking,
Crackle and crunch
In a snappety bunch.
Run and catch
Run and catch
Can you catch them?
Pile them up
In a stompy pile and
GOD BLESS AMERICA
