Political Haiku, Vol. 7

Obama signs bill;
Are we stimulated yet?
Not yet, maybe soon.

At last a budget,
After all the sturm und drang.
Now the pain begins.

Rick Santelli rants,
“We need a new tea party!”
Make mine Earl Grey, please.

Dean Andal won’t run
Against McNerney next time.
GOP must search.

Torrico will run
For AG in 2010;
Harris sharpens knives.

    Let’s kill small parties! Have a top-two open primary. Enough said.
