WHAT AN OXYMORON!

'POLITICAL SCIENCE'!

The Only thing Scientific about Politics is Calculating how MUCH MONEY IT COSTS!

The rest of the Rhetoric, or HOGWASH is as Stupid as 'Pissin' in the Wind'!

THE PIC? I call it "Our Money at Work" ...
It is CONGRESS during a Session -
Note the Two 'Representatives' playing -
SOLITAIRE on their PC screens!






DEBATES


© - Tom Hyland - 11/13/11


I see All the Debates, from Both Parties,
As a Waste of: Time, Money, and Space!

Watched the Republican ‘Mastodons’ last Night,
Just out of Curiosity, for the First Time.

To me, reminiscent of ‘The Academy Awards’.
Many ‘Stars’ hoping to Win an ‘Oscar’ for their ‘Performances.’

And ‘Actors’ Upon a ‘Stage’ is exactly what they Are!
Only ONE has the Chance to make ‘Best Actor’.

And yet, they are not unlike ‘Clones’ -
With One thing in Common- “Get Obama!”

What are their ‘Differences’?
Let us ‘Count the Ways’:

One Woman - ‘Michelle Ma Belle’ -
Hasn’t got a Chance in Hell!

One Black - who is ‘Under Attack’
Just what we Need - Another ‘Clinton’!

One Texas Governor - who ‘Scares the Hell’ out of Me -
Close your eyes n’ Listen - Another ‘Babbling Bush’?

One ‘Newt The Fruit’ - Who appears a ‘Brute’ -
Resurrected from the ‘Ashes’ by the ‘Old Guard.’

One Former Ambassador - Who will Not Last -
Unknown - Unsung - Will be ‘Shown the Door!’

One ‘Ancient’ - With ‘One Foot in the Grave’
Many ‘Moons’ Ago - he Might have been ‘Suave’!

One ‘Businessman’ - Who is certainly ‘Cunning’ -
His Money Alone will Guarantee his ‘Front-Running.’

One ‘I Don’t Know - Can’t Remember’ -
Will be Gone - Afore Next September’!

Count ‘Em - That’s Eight!
More ‘Mud-Slingin’ - Right up to the ‘Gate.’

As you can Tell - I’m Really Impressed -
‘The Party of NO’ - At its Very Best!

‘COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF’ ?
SCARES HELL OUT OF ME!
HERE IN ‘THE LAND OF THE FREE!

‘Debates’ - Are they Really a Farce?
Merely ‘Distractions’? Avoiding Realties Harsh?

Corporate and Media Sponsored -
Real Issues Censored?

Were it Up to Me - Persnickety Quick -
I’d Re-Introduce - ‘The Lipstick on a Pig!’

At Least some Beauty and Humor - Might Intervene -
America ‘Twould have a ‘Shot-Gun’ Queen’!

Thinking Back - To 2008 and Before -
The ‘Jack-Asses’ - Were Reversed ...

A ‘Gang’ of Contenders - All on Stage -
Hoping just One could Stop the Republican Rage!

Maybe this ‘Flip-Flop’ is Natural SOP -
But, Too many Hands Doth ‘Spoil the SOUP!’

DEBATES?

Once Upon a Time - Way Out West -
A Simple ‘Quickest-Draw’ - Produced The Best!

Perhaps a ‘Shoot-Out’ - like ‘OK Corral’ -
Would Give Us - The US - Our Bestest Pal ?

Someone with ‘Steely Eyes’ and a ‘Steady Hand’ -
Could be Our Security ‘Defense’ Across This Land!


ARE DEBATES DEBATABLE?

- OR RATHER -

MY OPINIONS DEFLATABLE?

I think they all stink, and they're all Ego Maniacs. And please don't even advocate bringing back that putrid Shot Gun Queen from Alaska - America's rapidly vanishing wildlife would all be killed off in a second, if she had her way. "I really enjoy gunning down wolves from helicopters!"

The entire lot of them would seem to present very little to be considered worthy of the office, but are any of them a whole hell of a lot worse than what we've got now?

Ranting and raving again does Mr. Hyland, the cur of Maryland, the sir of Authors Den & the connoisseur of writing against the government...another great one, Tom...Jurseeeeeeeeeeey
