Of Limericks, Rice, and Roberts

This morning, I found that Blogger.com was not operating, so I took the opportunity to cruise the blogwave and see what other interesting blogs could be found. I stumble across this one which is a very good Republican blog. I recommend it heartily.

I found these Limericks on the site and, being a big fan of limericks myself, I have decided to post them here:

(hide the kiddies)

There once was a gal named Lewinski
Who played on a flute like Stravinsky
Twas Hail to the Chief
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski.

Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky,
We don't want to leave clues like Kaczynski,
Since you made such a mess,
Use the hem of your dress
And please wipe that stuff off of your chinsky.

Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
What Kaczynski must surely have known
That an intern is better
Than a bomb in a letter
When deciding how best to be blown.

Here's one that I was going to post on my comment about Pat Robertson but forgot to. It is one of my own:

There was a faith healer from Beal
Who said, although pain isn't real
When I sit on a pin
And it punctures my skin
I dislike what I fancy I feel.

By the way, Did anyone else see the video report about Condoleeza Rice helping to distribute supplies to the victims of Hurricane Katrina? What a class act. I love her.

One final note here:President Bush has announced the appointment of John Roberts as his choice as the replacement for the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist.

I have always thought Roberts would eventually be appointed Chief Justice but I figured he would at least wait until Roberts was confirmed to the Supreme Court first. I am not entirely comfortable with this decision. If the office of Chief Justice has more power than the other justices, I think the appointment to Chief Justice should go to a Judge who we are already familiar with, as far as how he/she will rule.

That said, I believe President Bush has probably made a good decision, since he has no doubt interviewed Mr. Roberts as to his ideological stance.

I just wish I could be as sure as Bush.

Oh, Wait! More good news! My girlfriend's father has made contact. (My girlfriend is the one who sometimes comments on my blog under the name, "Frogs") He and his family are safe in Texas. Also blogger friend Dana, from Slidell, LA has been heard from. Her family is safe also. And my sister, Linda, reports that her home on the Gulf Coast sustained minor damage but is still intact.

Dang! I thought word verification would keep the blogspammers away!

I'm glad your friends are okay. I hope we get more reports like that.

It keeps some of the spammers away, but it's not perfect. I still get spammed a couple of times a day, but I delete them completely.

Thank God that all of your people came through thwe disaster on the Gulf Coast safely.

I loved the Lymrics! They were very funny.

I will say that I am a little dissapointed in the President for nominating Roberts to be Chief Justice as well.
I wanted him to pick Ruth Bader Ginsberg for Chief, and nominate hard line conservatives to the other positions. That way, she would pick the cases that would be heard by the Supreme court, and they would all go Conservative.

Hoo-Hah!!
