The Deadline Poet handles a virtual shiv with the best of the political infighters. Four simple lines and Dumbo guts are spilling into the gutter. The Dumbos are driven by a single emotion: H.A.T.E. That makes them an easy target for the satirist. If this is (fair & balanced) political nonsense, so be it.
