Weekend Rhymes

Alright kids. My SAD disorder's kicking in—in ten minutes I'll be huddled over childhood pictures on my cold bedroom floor, weeping and craving carbs. So real quick, here are your weekend rhymes. They won't replace the sun, but at least they're cheaper than those natural light bulbs.

Even though Joe the Plumber's 15 minutes is at about 14:59 on the ticker, his stupid book/recording contract plans are so annoying he merits a bit o' limerick:

There once was a plumber named Joe

Who didn't want anyone to know

That he's not a real plumber

Which is such a bummer

'Cause from bullshit he doth overflow


And, again under the political rubric, behold the haiku:

Hillary Clinton

Secretary of State? No!

Hold out for SCOTUS*


*SCOTUS=Supreme Court of the United States

Supreme Court Haiku

Didn't Hillary say that she wasn't interested in a Supreme Court appointment?


I very distinctly recall Clinton saying she didn't want the Secretary of State position, too.

Looked for a source, found <a href="http://wcbstv.com/politics/hillary.clinton.secretary.2.864839.html">one<...
<i>"I'm not interested in serving in the administration," she told CBS 2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer on Nov. 4. "I want to roll up my sleeves and be a good partner in the Senate for the agenda that I hope will be successful in the next two years."</i>

I remember her saying something specifically about Secretary of State, but I can't find it.

Or... wait. Sorry, misread

Or... wait. Sorry, misread your comment. I was thinking of the Secretary position, not Supreme Court.

Well, so she says publicly...

...but the scuttlebutt is that she truly wanted the SCOTUS position, to the point that she told Obama during the end of the primary season that she would concede earlier than she did if he would promise her the appointment. He refused, and thus the primary battle continued on.
Of course, ALL of it's political gossip until, well, until we know for sure. That said, what do ya'll think—which would be better for the country: Hillary as Sec. of State, or as a Supreme Court justice?
