Political Haiku, Vol. 1

By Josh Richman
Thursday, May 29th, 2008 at 6:35 am in Barack Obama, Elections, haiku, John McCain, President Bush, same-sex marriage.

McClellan pans Bush,
a book we all saw coming.
Yet Karl Rove is shocked.

McCain banks more cash
both in Reno and SoCal –
none for GI bill?

Barack said Auschwitz
but really meant Buchenwald

A gaffe? Do we care?

Gay marriage starts soon
unless court stays its own hand.
Must we cast votes first?

C’mon, everybody – five syllables, then seven, then five (yes, I know that’s oversimplified, but I don’t speak Japanese). Bring it on!
