The check is in the mail; the moon is made of cheese.
The Prez had no idee'; he never had a clue.
What I tell you three times is true:
He didn't even think the thoughts, so couldn't have done the deeds.
And what I tell you three times is true.

When he told us to "get in their faces,"
He just meant we should kiss you
And if you believe that here's a tissue.
By the way, what's the T-party? Don't they know their places?
Remember, what we tell you three times is true. [or]

What we tell you three times is true! Or is that four?

P.S.
Speaking of the new tone in our nation:

CNN) – The words "kindergarten graduation" usually evoke images of tearful parents taking pictures of cute kids in pint-sized graduation caps and gowns.

But for students and parents at Michael R. White Elementary School in Cleveland, "kindergarten graduation" might now conjure images of "aggravated rioting."

This, after eight individuals were arrested Friday morning after a fight near the end of the school's graduation ceremony.

Officers were dispatched after receiving reports of gunfire, according to a statement from the Cleveland Police Department.

As it turned out, there was no gunfire or guns confiscated. But people were going at it after an altercation between two teen girls apparently broke out, Detective Jennifer Ciaccia said . . .

PPS: As Paul Harvey would say, "SIGH." And for the rest of the story, stay tuned. But I think we've just been mooned.
