Roses are red
Violets are blue
Oh, my lump in the bed, how I’ve missed you.
Roses are redder
Bluer am I
Seeing you kissed by that charming French guy.
The dogs and the cat, they missed you too
Barney’s still mad you dropped him, he ate your shoe
The distance, my dear, has been such a barrier
Next time you want an adventure, just land on a carrier.
-- President George W. Bush

If you are a head of state, you don't refer to Chirac as "that charming French guy." You just don't.
This confirms all my worst suspiscions.
I say this half in jest.

The "charming French guy" stanza, actually, was the one I found the least offensive. Somehow -- beginner's luck? -- he actually managed to fall into proper iambic meter, and maintain it all the way through.
If the rest weren't so unspeakably gawdawful, he might even show some promise. But this is the sort of stuff one writes as parody, and the context makes it clear IT ISN'T.
It's been said before by better men than I: This is the first American administration that has made political satire truly and irreparably irrelevant.

I didn't, I wasn't eligible to do so. :P

Actually, I voted for the Libertarian Party candidate.
I came to the conclusion a few years ago that the two major parties have become mirror images, or at least close enough that they are equal evils.

But, now that you've seen the Republican party, you've realized the error of your ways?

This is where I stand and point at the innards of America, and shout, horsely, "YOU! You fuckers! IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!"
Also, for something related, stolen from ~blackmanxy, stolen from somewhere else...
"See, in our country, we have a two-party system; my party is the Stupid Party, and the other party is the Evil Party. Sometimes my guys are in power and we get a lot of stupid legislation; sometimes the other guys are in power and we get a lot of evil legislation. Sometimes both parties are in power and we get what's called 'gridlock,' where nothing particularly stupid or evil gets done. But occasionally the parties get together in what we call 'bipartisanship,' where we pass something that's both stupid and evil . . . ."

That's fucking painful. At least our PM was savvy enough to hire a poet when he wanted a preamble for our constitution...
After a very long search, I managed to find perhaps eight people out of about three hundred who had voted for him. Those eight are all related, talk loudly and proudly of how they voted for Bush Sr too, and how one of their kids is/was out there being Bush's bodyguard. They are fanatics. That family is alarmingly wealthy, and has been longtime friends with the Gates family.
Honest to God. I know these people.
They're extremely weird, but not in a /fun/ way. Most of them are of ordinary intelligence, too, but overly concerned with popularity, fashions, and money.

It still hurts. It still hurts
But at least I'm feeling a little better after putting the Cat Town
special radio episode, "The Pie
," on repeat play for half an hour straight.
I highly recommend it as cognitive dissonance therapy.
Bush is a poetic genius!
XD BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA *explode*

Okay, maybe I shouldn't feel so bad at my abortive attempts at structured poetry.
