Republican Brawl

Republican Brawl


First Palin said that Rove had spent a lot
Of other people’s money, and had got
For all of that a largely losing slate—
Suggesting Rove’s gone past his sell-by date.
So Rove, in search of subtle ways to hit her,
Implied that she’d turned out to be a quitter.
Then John McCain, with careful choice of words,
Said Rand and Cruz behaved like “wacko birds.”
O’Reilly said that Bachmann’s speech was trite.
We can’t choose sides, since everyone is right.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.
