Republican plans are set to rhyme

Editor:

’Twas a while after Christmas in Republican Land, and the right was preparing their desperate stand. They needed a candidate who’d take back the presidency, but is such a candidate actually in residency? They tried Willard Romney. They had to be joking. If they run him again what on earth are they smoking? McCain’s a tad old, Perry’s too lazy. Gingrich has baggage and Santorum’s plain crazy. Chris Christie could be a formidable pup. I can hear him now “Newt! Sit down and shut up!” Could he really win, this enormous man-o and if so, are we ready for President Tony Soprano? If they pick the wrong guy he’ll be put in a pillory and held nice and still for a beating by Hillary. Even the right guy, if he’s actually there, will have a hard time just mussing her hair. Say what you will about Bubba’s gal Hill, I think she learned a few things from Bill. Like winning wars with no harm to our troops and catching terrorists without saying oops. Bill tracked them down, caught ’em, and tried ’em. If our laws had allowed it, he for sure would’ve fried ’em. He did it without even spending much money or stupidly invading an uninvolved country. So you right-wingers can start your moaning. In 2016 you’re gonna be groaning. On Newt, on Mitt, on you too, Perry. It’s time to gear up so the Dems can make merry. We’re counting on you guys to blow it agin (sic) and we can’t wait to see you take it right on the chin! Please try to think straight and maintain your decorum. Can you really see Hill getting beat by Santorum? As I conclude this tirade of zingers, I feel no pity for those nasty right-wingers.

Lenin was correct about capitalists

Editor:

You would get the impression from the media’s reaction to North Korea’s attempt to stop the showing of the movie that nothing similar had happened before. At one time “the mob” sold the merchants “protection.” “Pay us regularly and you won’t have any vandalism to your business.” President Bush labeled them an “outlaw nation.” The publicity won’t hurt the ticket sales to the movie. Bad publicity is better than no publicity.

I wonder if the Reverend “Al” might practice a modern version, “support my causes or else.” The money for his lifestyle and travel comes from somewhere. He seems to be a community organizer, as Mayor de Blasio and other prominent people he is pictured with were previously. The old saying “be judged by the company you keep” is still true.

When a conservative speaker is scheduled at some of the colleges, protests are held if their appearance isn’t canceled and they are shouted down. In these cases, politically correct speech is free.

As soon as recognition of Cuba was mentioned, companies were lining up to do business. Lenin was right when he said “the capitalists will sell us the rope we use to hang them.”
