Haiku in honor of the Vice Presidential Debate!

In honor of the Joe Biden/Paul Ryan VP debate on Thursday, October 11, 2012, I composed this little ditty:

“Head to head debate;
Who’s better at funerals,
Biden or Ryan?”

 

Just having some fun with how our prior VP’s worked!

GOP 2012 CONVENTION SPECIAL HAIKU!

In honor of the delightful GOP Tampa 2012 Convention, which has so far proven to be dull and full of the same rhetoric and no substance whatsoever.  I’m glad that Ann Romney can speak. Her husband is still as warm and fuzzy as cardboard. I wish she had mentioned Kolob in her remarks.

In honor of the lack of excitement, here is a special haiku inspired by the magical words of Todd Akin, Congressman from Missouri.

 

Moronic words like

“Legitimate abortion”

Make you sound plain dumb.

 

Enjoy the GOP convention, or just go to bed early.

 

Nothing to see there!

Palin Not Asked to Speak…again!

Remember on election night in 2008, when Sarah Palin came out. Her mouth closed tighter than a clam shell?

She looked like she was told she was to say and do nothing that night by John McCain.

And now we see that she is not going to be a featured speaker at the Republican Convention in Tampa.

 

It led me to pen this new haiku:

 

Palin voice stifled –

mouth shut at Repub Convo

and election night.

 

It’s probably for her own good that she isn’t speaking or given a platform!

Romney: Haiku for You!

There is a lot about Romney I don’t like.

I don’t like that he bullied his dog by driving with the dog on top of his car roof for 9 hours.

I don’t like that he bullied and cut the hair of a fellow student who was ‘effeminate.’

I don’t like that as head of Bain Capital he bullied companies by taking them over then sent American jobs overseas.

And I don’t really even know what his real name is. It turns out it is Willard Mitt Romney.  And Mitt isn’t short for Mittens!

 

Here is my first Haiku dedicated to Good Ol’ Mittens…

Bully to dogs, boys;

Sent US jobs overseas;

Willard Mitt Romney

Haiku for Trayvon – Not Political Humor

We are all still saddened by the unconscionable murder of Trayvon Martin. I wish I could have learned about Trayvon becoming a Jeopardy champion, or a great scientist, doing charitable work to make the world a better place. Unfortunately, we learn of him through his tragic death. To his memory I wrote this haiku:

“Trigger happy George -

cuts down seventeen year old.

We scream in outrage.”

 

There are no political humor jokes in this. There is just our collective sadness.

 

Rest in peace, Trayvon.

Trayvon Haiku

 
 

Harassing women does not make funny political comedy…

Limbaugh, sitll a big fat idiot

We all heard about Rush Limbaugh’s offensive comments. What he said is not political comedy. It is not a funny Republican joke. It is just pure thoughtless garbage.

Here is a haiku about Rush from I took many of these quotes by Bush jokes – I mean quotes – and other great funny political quotes, Republican jokes, and turned them into modern political comedy using the haiku format. Read them in my book here: BUSH HAIKUS: Simple Poems for a Simple Presidency.

Rush Limbaugh – big, fat…
not fat anymore, but still
a big idiot.

I like collecting funny political quotes, Bush jokes, Palin jokes, Republican jokes and general political comedy.  But comments denigrating a person because of their gender, race, religion, or ethnic heritage is not funny in my book.

 
 

BUSH HAIKUS: Political Comedy

 

George Bush gave America a lot, including a HUGE deficit and numerous useless deaths in Iraq. Bush also left us many funny political quotes and set a new standard for political comedy under the guise of Bush jokes and Republican jokes. As much as many wish Bush was a joke, it was a sad reality. Here’s a great way to remember the Presidency of George W. Bush and the politics of 2000-2008.

These are from the only book of it’s kind, BUSH HAIKUS: Simple Poems for a Simple Presidency.

Here are two of my favorites:

Clinton versus Bush;
differences are many
like – make love, not war

and

Laura Welch plus (+) car
equals (=) boyfriend homicide.
Yes, “it was crushing.”

On November 6, 1963, Laura Welch smashed into the car of her then boyfriend Mike Douglas, killing him, in Midland, Texas.  At a Providence, Rhode Island campaign stop on Thursday, March 2, 2000, when asked about this Laura Welch Bush said “All I can say about that…it was a very, very, tragic accident I was involved in when I was 17 years old, almost 40-something years ago.  It was a terrible accident. It was terrible for everyone involved.  I know this as an adult, and even more as a parent, it was crushing … for the family involved and for me as well.”  This gives Laura Bush the dubious distinction of being America’s only First Lady to have killed someone.

 

Many of the haikus were crafted using the funny political quotes of George W. Bush. He is not the only one skewered in the book. There are many other great Republican jokes and other forms of political comedy in the 5-7-5 syllable format!

PALIN PEARLS: Unintended Political Comedy

Sarah Palin, her mouth created more unnecessary Republican jokes, wonderful funny political quotes and unintended political comedy. A haiku not in the book, PALIN PEARLS: Political Haikus 2008-2011.

Many jokes of her –

Oh simple Sarah Palin,

Never fully served.

 

And so was born my book: PALIN PEARLS: Political Haikus 2008-2011. Filled with funny political quotes and mocking the political comedy of that era.

Funny Political Quotes by Vice President Dan Quayle!

Funny political quotes by Vice President Dan Quayle! – Remember when we thought he was a foolish VP? Sarah Palin Quotes  could have easily beaten him for that title. Quayle was the basis of many wonderful Republican jokes and political comedy in the 1980′s and 1990′s.

 

5. I have made good judgements in the Past. I have made good judgements in the Future.

4. What a waste it is to lose one’s mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is.

3. One word sums up probably the responsibility of any vice president, and that one word is ‘to be prepared’. December 6, 1989

2. I stand by all the misstatements that I’ve made. August 17, 1989

1. We’re going to have the best-educated American people in the world. September 9, 1988

 

Quayle gave us numerous funny political quotes, and added to America’s political comedy scene. The Republican jokes were great in the 1980′s and 1990′s but they really were great under Bush.  I’m glad the American people did not make the same choice to bring Sarah Palin into the VP’s office! You can read about Sarah Palin and her family’s foibles in my book  PALIN PEARLS: Political Haikus 2008-2011 and read her funny political quotes too!
