Hey, boys and girls, learn to write CLERIHEWS! Choose the Presidential or Vice-Presidential candidate of your choice and have fun!
Here are the rules:

A clerihew is a humorous pseudo-biographical quatrain, rhymed as two couplets with lines of uneven length, more or less in the rhythm of prose. The name of the subject is usually at the end of the first line (sometimes the second line) and is well known. The humor of the clerihew is whimsical rather than satiric.

Here are a couple of examples using the current Administration:

Bush, George W.,
History will judge you
And offer no absolution
For shredding the Constitution.

Cheney, youíre a famous Dick
Big business is your bailiwick.
Is it a wonder we canít impeach you?
Even your own heart attacks canít reach you.

Try it today! You're sure to receive lots of comments.

The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.

Clerihew Challenge
John McCain gives me a pain
But Sarah drives me insane
Itís not her platform thrilling the masses
Itís those expensive, sexy glasses!

Clerihew Thread
My vote's for Maxine
A pit bull, meaner than mean
Doesn't wear expensive glasses
Too busy out there kicking asses

See, I told you it was FUN
Sarah Palin, I just have to ask ya:
Is it true huntingís a value in Alaska?
While it may lack a Washington lobby,
Motherhoodís the value; huntingís a hobby.
