The Jobs Bill Rumble


This was written a while ago.


with a few edits,

and some regard for when it was published,

the message,

I hope,

is the same.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++

John Boehner

and Mitch,

‘Ain’t that a sorry bitch’,


are taking punishment from the President on Jobs,

with no end in sight.


They, John and Mitch,

are getting whipped,

they are now,

the unwilling witness

to their own demise,

unable to muster a meaningful gesture,

they are,

in lo these prophetic words,

“stuck in a poverty of ideas”.

It is here they sit,


as PBO goes into his rap:

“What’s my name?”,

“I can’t hear you!”,

“Air Force 1 is warming up behind me”,

“We’re headed for another trip

to an Ohio or Kentucky, rusting pit of potholes boarder town.”,

“What’s my name?”


They, on the other hand,

stung beyond sensibility,

are stuck with taking a dive early

or facing 14 more rounds of punishment,

from a smiling,

confident for good reason,

newly energized,


Boehner & McConnell,

The Tag Team Bums of the Month,

or the quarter,

or the latest ever relentless election cycle.

(Whatever the interval,

it’s cyclical,

and it’s coming up again.)



is the problem

Republicans can’t seem to shake.
