    Parody

    The whole thing is a joke.
    Here's my contribution..........please feel free to criticize it!!

    The Recall


    The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Barrett crowd that night;
    The people all were tired from a long and nasty fight.
    So when AP tried to call the race; and others did the same;
    A little gleam of hope came to the players of the game.

    The unions all had risen with their money and their clout;
    And vowed they wouldn’t rest until they kicked Scott Walker out.
    Their goose was laying golden eggs, until someone said, “No fair!”
    And forced those union members to pony up their share.

    They twisted and distorted facts, they grumbled, and they cheated;
    But the polls still were showing that Walker wouldn’t be defeated.
    Still they clung to the hope that springs, eternal in the breast;
    If only somehow they could prove that Barrett was the best.

    Then finally, election day, and the people started voting;
    What happened then that fateful day is worthy of the noting.
    At forty-six to fifty-three folks were left with little doubt;
    That Mr.Barrett wouldn’t soon be kicking Walker out.

    So Barrett finally gave up, and admitted he’d been beat.
    He called up Governor Walker and admitted his defeat
    “Foul!” an angry female cried, “We haven’t lost the race!”
    Then she rewarded Barrett with a slap right to his face.

    With a smile of liberal charity, old Barrett’s visage shone;
    He stilled the rising tumult and bid the fight go on.
    “We’ve only just begun!” he said “We will be back again you know!”
    As he sat there slowly eating his humble dish of crow.

    Oh, somewhere in this favored land of cheese curds and of beer;
    The people are celebrating with their hearts all full of cheer.
    And somewhere someone’s laughing with a smile on his face;
    But not down in Milwaukee, Mr. Barrett’s lost the race.
    If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

    I don't care for High-coo. Would rather do the limerick thing something like this:

    The Democrats while trying to save face.
    Thought Barrett was surely their ace
    They sent in “Slick Willy;
    Which really was silly;
    And still ended up losing the race.
    If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

    I like limericks better myself. I was just trying to accomodate the high-coo-faluting members of the site.

    I'd have to look myself in the mirror to do that and then what would happen if my wife heard me talking to myself???

    Same here, but my wife never listens to me anyway, so I'm safe in that respect.
