Christmas and the Fiscal Cliff Mess

I usually leave poetry to the poets, but this fiscal cliff stuff at Christmas was irresistible If you can stand more verses, they are here. Also mentioned in the WSJ.

'Twas the night before Cliff Mess, and throughout the land,
Democrats, Republicans were taking a stand.
Their positions unwavering, intractably firm,
With donkey-like stubbornness or entrenched pachyderm.

But the public were hopeful all snug in their beds,
With visions of compromise alive in their heads.
“Come on!” said the people in frustrated dismay.
“Abandon this meaningless partisan fray”.........

Improving the Presidential Debates

“Mr. President, do you ever get muddled and take Joe for a walk in the Rose Garden and Bo to cabinet meetings?”

“Governor, is it true you wanted ‘You’re so Bain’ for your campaign song?”

These probing questions will make the next presidential debate more vivacious. More questions in this week's Times and Democrat.

Unbelievable Mars Rover Photo

The Mars Curiosity rover found a shiny object, shown here (real photo). Sure looks like a tiny alien to me.
If we could zoom in, bet he's holding up an "Earthlings go home!" sign.
