    This really made me mad, this idiotic letter has been going around for a while with the "McCain supporters" in our community.
    Really, its a immature bash in the first place, and it holds the most inaccurate garbage I have seen.
    I don't really why I posted it, it just made me super mad.
    **** Her.

    hmm intersting. You have no problem with things like that about Bush or McCain. True or not but the 2nd it is about Obama or Dems you have an issue.... It has a bases of truth in it.
    Just you have to get past all the taking things to the extreme. Welcome to the world of politics. They are all filthy liers who only care about getting power for themselves

    I have little hope for this administration. I made my opinion clear what I though about both Obama and McCain during the election (if you need a refresher I though they both sucked and neither one was good for this country)

    Post up some fear enticing chain emails (preferably in rhyming couplets) from the left for us Rodimus.

    From a strictly literary point of view, that's one really crap poem.

    This piece of work commits the cardinal sin not of being offensive or inflammatory, but of simply being a completely awful poem.

    What does this refer to?

    Is it two separate ideas or one idea (in which case there should be a "to" before help).

    Please- post examples of when we've done this here. I really would like to see just how widespread it is.

    Wait, I thought all the crap that happened during Bush's terms was the result of Clinton's disastrous policies? So somehow in a week and a half everything that's wrong with this country is now Obama's fault? What happens if something goes right in the next 4 years? Will Obama get the credit? Or will anything that goes right be the result of Bush's policies while all the failings somehow fall on Obama's shoulders?

    This is one of those emails that floats around the ridiculously hardcore supporters. Obama could give everyone a house of gold and a kiss and they still would be moaning how we are somehow now a socialist god hating country.

    In other words, junk mail.

    That plus the fact it's written by someone WAY to the Right politically of me (and I'm generally conservative when it comes to economics).

    I share your puzzlement, for you have just given it still wider circulation.

    It is bad "poetry". The meter is all over the place.

    And, as a personal note, I do not like contractions in poetry.

    Yes- funny/sad, not funny/funny. It's completely ignorant. I'll laugh, so that I don't cry.

    But simplistic blaming and bashing is the Great American Political Sport!

    Exactly, you reap what you sow I suppose! I've heard (not necessarily on here ) a lot of people making similarly inane accusations of those who voted Republican in the past few elections. It's the old saying "What goes around, comes around" I suppose.

    That's why I think it's funny. It's obviously overblown rhetoric, but it's not like overblown rhetoric is in short supply in the political arena these days is it?

    Things like this make me happy, if only because it means that research into mental instability and how to fix these peoples broken brains isn't just wasting money.

    Ted Hughes? RS Thomas? WB Yeats? Rank amateurs compared to this poetic genius.

    Regardless of it's 'politics', that is a terrible poem. I'd be embarrassed putting my name to it, never mind copyrighting it.

    In fact, it could be described as Sixth Form Poetry, but that comparison would be unfair towards teenagers with literary aspirations.

    Anyone could easily write a similar poem directed at Republicans, but nothing is gained except for more division.

    i always get a laugh out of these things. just goes to show how absurd the world is that some bitter jerkoff would go to the trouble to string together a bunch of lies in poetic verse. AFTER they already lost. and even more absurd is that there are people who actually believe it. this is the reason i think democracy is totally overrated. there really ought to be some kind of IQ test they give people in order to vote. seriously. i mean c'mon, do you really want someone who legitimately thought barack obama was a terrorist deciding the future of our country? reasonable, intelligent people can have differing opinions but the truth is that the average american is a moron and we should start acting accordingly.

    First off, iTeen, I'm glad you were able to post this without anybody getting snarky. I shared something similar a while back, and got grief about it from a poster who was apparently my self-appointed moderator. (He seems to have gone away, either of his own accord or at the suggestion of the real moderators.)

    Anyway, I hear you. I've got this relative that forwards me all this crap -- messages that were supposedly composed by Andy Rooney or Ben Stein (and it always turns out they're fakes) -- or stupid stuff about how wonderful Sheriff Joe Arpaio is -- and it makes me wanna whoops. They're always full of hatred for immigrants, foreigners, people on welfare, and anybody else the hidden authors of these nauseating epistles care to blame for their woes.

    I think I'm gonna start fighting back by e-mailing these people the most liberal stuff I can find. Lemme see, where's my bookmark for the ACLU...?
