Political Haiku, Vol. 4

Dems put forth budget,
Tax hikes make GOP mad.
What will Arnold do?

FISA changes pass
With votes from DiFi, Barack;
Fourth Amendment weeps.

Dems give Perata
a quarter mil for defense.
Will ‘The Don’ face charges soon?

Jesse Jackson speaks
unkindly of Obama
,
eats crow for breakfast.
