A few days ago, The Hill noted John Kerry’s nasty mocking of Sen. David Vitter’s D.C. Madam-related woes. Kerry was speaking at a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee fund-raiser last week:

Kerry made light of the situation with a limerick when he spoke at the event, which was held, appropriately enough, in Nantucket, Mass.

“There once was a man named Vitter

Who vowed that he wasn’t a quitter

But with stories of women

And all of his sinnin’

He knows his career’s in the — oh, never mind,” Kerry said.

The poem was reported by ABC News on Friday and confirmed to The Hill by a Democratic aide who attended the event.

Lucianne’s rhyming readers have responded with their own verses. A sample:

A snawb’ly gaunt eater of pickles,

and his wife, an enjoyer of prickles,

sneer at collegues’ missteps

and hoi polloi schleps

as they pinch inherited nickles.

There once was a Bay Stater pol,

Who thought he had married a doll,

When honeymoon ended,

Mr. Kerry lamented,

His doll was a chain with a ball.

So he struck out at Senator Vitter

In a way a that’s as sad as it’s bitter

“cause Teresa’s huge stash

keeps John home counting her cash,

It acts like a big baby-sitter.

There once was a phony named Jawn

Who almost sailed in on a con

He thought he was shifty

But got beached by the Swifty

Now lives as the Gigolo Mon

There once was a strange Gigolo

Who married and married for dough

He made up a war story

Puffed it up for his glory

But won’t sign his own one eight oh

A horse-faced young man served in Nam,

Whose war record turned out to be sham.

When confronted with fact,

He swiftly attacked,

‘’I say, don’t you know who I am?’’

Keep scrolling. Great stuff.



Hot Air’s wordsmiths were busy composing a few days ago:

There once was a man named Lurch

Whose comrades in arms he’d besmirch

His future was bright

The election was tight

Til Swift Boaters did their research
