Ongoing Poetry Slam at Jenghazi Rubin's Place

Happening daily over here.

P.S. Hagel / Bagel is hard to resist.

For further commentary, here's Charles Pierce. Furthermore, Media Matters:

Also: A little more Soft Light.

UPDATE: The Post Moderator has been busy this morning on Jenghazi's spirited tribute to Senator Lindsey Graham.

She/he/it/postmoderator got this one, too.

That top pic is a righteous trash can shot. That should be the next photo theme - 'The Dustbin of History'...

I will harass Fred Hiatt as soon as he puts up another post, A.K.

You couldn't work an orb into any of those poems?

OBS said...

There once was a writer named Rubin
Who was paid to write screeds while doobin'.
A joint laced with orbs
She completely absorbed.
Her paper is best used after poopin'

OBS said...

There once was an editor named Hiatt
The job? He thought it a riot.
"A strap-on Ms. Rubin?"
"Damn straight Fred, but no lubin',
There best not be squealin' -- be quiet!"

Thanks, OrBS!

OBS said...

I can never resist the limericks.

Limericks and poems fill my days with screaming joy and sometimes- teardrops! Ha ha ha ! I always like your animal and all DOGIE photos !!!!

Jennifer Rubin
Caught Fred Hiatt lubin'
A rent boy with whom he'd engage.
Thus did she earn
A column, "Right Turn",
On WaPo's opinion page.

I posted one for each of you, OBS and B^4, but the Post Moderator already deleted B^4's.

Now you see you don't.

Thank you, anne.

P.S. you win the most mysterious commenter award.

I hope you're wearing a fashionable hat whilst dropping such dope rhymes, or whatever they're called these days.

Thanks, I certainly wasn't going to post anything over there -- I went and took a gander at that comment section. That is one festering cesspool of crazy over there. Jeepers.

There once was a wag at the Post
Whose lim'rick was turned to a ghost
By Jenghazi's big boss.
But at what a great cost:
He now blogs it from Coast to Coast.

Or frogs. Or something.

He/she/it/postmoderator deleted yours, too, OBS.

Aw, that's not cool. Was it the "poopin'" one? That one was my favorite. If so, I hope the moderator/trix at least has a persistent "rubin/paper's is best used after poopin" mental meme going on right now.

Why does the Washington Post hate lube?

Why does the Washington Post hate lube?

This sounds like a story for Dana Milbank.

I'm glad you went back for more. Those rushes have such a sense of peace about them. I could watch them blow in the wind for hours.

I've posted a couple limericks too that have disappeared from Rubin's comments section. You can find them here:
