Limerick Contest Winner
Thanks to everyone who participated in our PostPartisan campaign limerick contest yesterday. We saw unprecedented turnout -- with close to 300 entries. And it was a tough race. But the votes have been counted and the results are in. After the jump are our eight honorable mentions, our runner-up (who will receive a commemorative edition of today's Post) and our winner (who will get an original Toles cartoon).
No greater survivor there can surely be
than John McCain, Vietnam pilot and detainee
but even a veteran of crashes
couldn’t escape from the ashes
of the smoldering wreckage of Bush forty three
An Irish-American mama
Said to her priest, "Father Thomma,
How can I choose
Twixt the reds and the blues?"
He quickly replied, "Vote O'Bama."
When engaged in a contest political
Running mate choice is most critical
Avoid giggles and winks
Pick a partner who thinks,
And possesses some skills analytical
They said that Obama lacked "tough"--
Too smooth when the going got rough.
But they didn't know,
To win the whole show,
Speak softly and carry a Plouffe.
A wink and a not and he let
A barracuda inside of his jet
Now he’s bit and he’s bleeding
His polls are receding
If only he'd called for a vet!
"It's the economy, stupid" they say,
'Cept for McCain on that fateful Fall day.
Did it cost him the crown?
Or is Palin the clown,
Who cares - we enjoyed Tina Fey!
The Republican menu lacked drama,
So they served up a hot hockey mama.
But red meat on high heels
Is an unhealthy meal,
So, no thanks, I’ll be having Obama!
In the land of red, white and blue,
Rode a man who was black/white and new,
People questioned his range
When he named his horse "Change,"
But that steed drove him straight, drove him true.
This limerick is written by Palin,
And I'm just gonna ignore your liberal media "gotcha" rules and requirements
About rhyming, which is also
A socialist agenda
So too and also in my experience
As a mayor of the buckets of job creation
I can see Russia from my house
McCain's new best friend, Joe the Plumber
Is having his Indian Summer
He soon hopes to be
On a country CD
And probably driving a Hummer
