On Thursday, Rick Santorum gave a foreign policy speech at the Jelly Belly Candy Company headquarters in California. Great choice, Rick - people are sure to take you seriously now.
Rick Santorum gave a major speech
On foreign policy – for him a reach –
He’s picked the place with nostalgic care:
The Jelly Belly Factory, that is where
Ronald Reagan got his jelly beans.
So I would guess at what this means:
Santorum will evoke the ghost of Reagan
But only figuratively – he’s not a pagan –
Perhaps he’ll want us to invade Grenada
Or pay some blackmail, like Iran-Contra.
This silly venue makes it hard, it seems,
To show much gravitas ‘midst jelly beans.
