In response to Colin Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama, Romney aide John Sununu suggested that there might be reasons other than "the issues" for the endorsement. He elaborated, “Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you’re proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him.”
Colin Powell is supporting Barack.
He thinks Mitt has gotten off track.
But Sununu let fly
"That's not really why,
It's only because they're both black."
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.
