Another fat man promises to send us to the moon.

and Newt certainly something about honeymooning

I have a little secret I'd like to impart.
That I hope doesn't give you too much of a start;
Tho' it's shocking, it's completely true.
I know it isn't gossip, or rumor, of course,
For I've had it from quite a reliable source
And I'd like to pass it on to you.

The man in the moon is a lady,
A lady in lipstick and curls;
The cow that jumped ovah cried,
"Jumpin' Jehovah,
I think it's just one of the girls."
She winks at the stars from her bed of green cheese,
That isn't a night-gown,
It's a Saturn chemise.

Oh, her friends are the stars and the planets,
She sends the Big Dipper a kiss;
So don't ever offend her,
Remember her gender,
The man in the moon is a miss.

Floridians contemplate the GOP winning hand.

Apparently repeated adultery and ditching ailing wives like used tissues aren't drawbacks in the State of philandering Governors and servant-raping Senators.

limeRICKs: Welfare reform

The problem of unemployment's acute.
About the poor children, few give a hoot.
Would Rick Santorum
Merely ignore 'em
Or would he have them clean toilets, like Newt?


and each has his own Karen

The Party of Lincoln: 2012



Once, we were a civilized nation.
Now candidates praise assassination.
When the shoe is put
on the other foot,
By God, there will be condemnation.

Little Ricky's Meditations

Sort of like antibiotics are a license to 
survive infections, counter to how 
things are supposed to be.
