Hold The Presses! Calvin Trillin Hasn't Finished Drillin'... Big Love!

Big Love is fading from view, but — before he slithers under a rock — this blog's poet-in-residence (Calvin Trillin) delivers one last kick to the Dumbo presidential candidate of 2012. The more Big Love babbles, the dumber he sounds. So, will it be Big Love in 2016? Can Big Love transform himself into The Trickster Redux? If this is a (fair & balanced) deathwish for Dumbos/Teabaggers everywhere, so be it.

To targeted groups he gave gifts that were free:
Say, healthcare for free until age 26,
And free contraceptives (for sex just for kicks).
Debates in the primaries left our team bruised
From harsh accusations the White House then used.
Whatever the reason for losing might be,
Of one thing I’m sure: it could not have been me.
I’m perfect. Ω
