This looming election has us all worried, especially the survivors of the Nixon era and the events of 1968. The Republican convention went relatively well…minimum police involvement…but the Democratic convention coming up next week is frightening vulnerable to “disruption” (to use mild language) by anti-Clinton forces and general agitators. In this excellent post by Jnana Hodson makes several points that are appropriate and informative. Thanks for the reblog, Jnana!
HI… I originally wrote this ditty for a WordPress class last year. It is re-blogged here because I think it is still very pertinent to current events. With apologies to my readers that have read this bit before.
Who you calling imperfect?
There once was a boy named Donald
Who wanted to be rich, and grow up to be President
ha ha! said the people as he started to
but he knew what he was doing and had all the cards he needed to
and win the game
opponents screamed like angry cat matrons
and picked on his hair and his noisy patrons
but Donald just said they should “lump it!”
You haven’t a chance, you’re not one of us, they wailed
“is that so?” said Donald as he placed a standing order for tea and crumpets
to serve to his fans to keep them from starving on the campaign trail
His crowd of the faithful grew and grew
’til they filled the land
so they bought him a very big trumpet.
