This blogger is bummed. Yesterday, he happened upon a 'toon in cyberspace that would have been cool today with The Deadline Poet's scandal-quatrain. Four panels; in #1, the First Lady says to the POTUS 44: "First, it was Benghazi." In #2, she tells POTUS that "Next it was the IRS." In #3, she moans, "Then it was the DOJ and AP." In $4, she cries, "Now, Bo the White House Dog has pooped in the Lincoln Bedroom!" The Dumbo/Teabagger screams of outrage cannot be imagined. Now, we live in the Time O'The Phony Scandal. The POTUS 44 needs to call a press conference and say (before walking away from the microphone): "F*ck you all and the horses you rode to get here." If this is a (fair & balanced) reply to a lynch mob, so be it.

Benghazi and the IRS

A plague of locusts may be next. Ω
