The Obama Conspiracy Limerick contest is over, and we have a winner. I was very impressed by the number and quality of the entries. I hope you had as much fun as I did.
If it pans out, I will be on Reality Check Radio this Tuesday night (9 PM EST) and will be reading some of the entries.
And the winner is Epectitus with this entry:
Conspiracy theories generic
Require ideas esoteric
And massive infusions
Of wacky delusions
From crackpots like “Dr. Polarik.”
One of mine garnered quite a few votes:
There once was a student from Taft
Whose suits were dismissed 'cause t'were daft;
And then without reason
Accused them of treason
While judges in chambers just laughed.
Here are other popular entries, and favorites of mine.

And none set their hands to the trigger
So full of hate
They cannot tolerate
That the voters elected a …
A Philadelphia lawyer named Phil,
an attorney of dubious skill,
Tried to stop one Barack,
with a suit based on crock,
and from there his career went downhill.
A lawyer with an axe to grind,
raved loudly and ranted and whined,
she called the Judge a traitor,
and the tool of a dictator,
and of course in the end she was fined.
She’s frustrated when she debates,
the law she often misstates,
procedure eludes her,
and Charles denudes her,
She’s the birther queen named Orly Taitz.
Though Obama has proved, with finality,
He’s legal and fit in totality,
These Birthers believe
There’s a plot to deceive
(Thus belying their lower mentality).
The Birthers are still filled with hate.
Our First Family just makes them irate.
“But, he has Kenyan kin!”
Crazy theories they spin.
He was born in the 50th state.
Next month, I’m thinking about another poetry contest, but this time using the Double Dactyl form.
