The poet William Stafford set himself the task of writing a poem a day. When someone asked him what he would do when his poem-of-the-day wasn't very good, he replied "I simply lower my standards." In order to increase output, the bar here is set at a low level - the point of this is to have some fun with current events and politics. I welcome contributions and comments. Now you can also follow Doggerelo on Twitter (@doggerelo). Because of continuing medical problems, I'm no longer able to post a poem-a-day. I'll continue to post poems, but at a reduced frequency, so please stay tuned.

Rush Says He's Sorry
Rush Limbaugh issued kind of an apology for his
vituperative attacks on Sandra Fluke, a law student who testified before a
Congressional Committee on birth control issues. He said, “…I chose
the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal
attack on Ms. Fluke.” Words like “slut”
and “prostitute”, which he apparently didn’t mean to be a personal attack. Shows you how detached from reality an obese
drug addict can be…oops, I didn’t mean that to be a personal attack.
