    “That whole philosophy of persistence,” he said, “is one that I’m going to be emphasizing again and again in the months and years to come as long as I’m in this office. I’m a big believer in persistence.” Persistence! Persistence! Without our persistence, we’d be as shaky as...as...as a lunatic on the roof. Again we have a piece process. Again negotiate. Again lean on the Israelis, different outcome to await. Persistence! And who must build the bombs, and strap them on his waist, then go blow up a disco, where girls all act unchaste? The Palis! The Palis! Persistence! And...
  • Obama's Eyes Are Nothing Like The Sun (apologies to William Shakesepeare)

    Obama's eyes are nothing like the sun; Karl is just as red as his lips' red; His mom is white, why then he's a black man's son; If hairs be wires, grey wires grow on his head. I have seen Ayers unmasked, red and white, As thorns on the roses in the stimulus he seeks; And in some perfumes is there more delight Than the cigarette breath that from the Messiah reeks. I love to hear him speak, yet well I know He'll talk our economy into the ground; I grant I never saw a goddess go but Sarah Palin,...

    Heading into Gaza A slow line enters Gaza. The brigade commander has a factory. The regiment commander is an engineer. The company commander is a science teacher. The platoon commander is in the standing army. The company sergeant sells holy books. The sergeant is something of a carpenter. The squad commander is presently unemployed. The private is a retiree. But they’re all excellent soldiers Marching in a slow line, in the tranquil night. Entering enemy territory Without fear. To fight for their nation Like their parents did for them. The brigade commander has a back-ache. The regiment commander has high...

    With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the House (and the Senate) Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care In hopes that a stimulus soon would be there. The voters were nestled all snug in their beds While visions of "hope" and "change" danced in their heads. The winners completed their victory lap, And we all settled down for our long winter's nap. For this year the markets had caused such a clatter-- Mortgages--credit crunch--what was the matter? With th'economy hitting new...
