A poem for McCain

Apparently McCain doesn't have any explanation for the shady money his team has raised from an indicted foreign national. Which causes Marc Ambinder to ask some poetic questions about the free pass McCain is getting from the media, for which Kevin Drum suggested that we improve the meter.

Well, here's a modest entry:

There once was a candidate named McCain
Who raised money right and left to campaign
Then some dubious moolah
Came from Abdullah
Though just how, John still can't explain

Not bad. But I prefer these, from the Washington Post contest a few years ago that challenged people to write limericks that included the words Lewinsky Kaczynski:

Third place:

There once was a gal named Lewinsky
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.

Second place:

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."

And the winning entry:

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.
