Wash. U Student Launches Sarah Palin Limerick Blog



A Washington University graduate student was struck with inspiration following last week's vice presidential debate here in St. Louis.

What kind of inspiration, you ask? See after the jump.


"When deciding to run with an Alaskan,
"there's a few things you should be askin':
"Will she put country first?
"Can she properly rehearse
"to lead us to victory in Michigan?"

Matthew Fluharty has founded The American Center For Sarah Palin Inspriational Limericks. It's "Maverick Versification For One Heckuva Nation."

A few other gems from the blog, in which readers are encouraged to submit their own limericks:

"Fate tends to spin on ugly wheels:
"the governor's mouth gets diarrheal.
"When she calls for aid
"the doctor's dismayed:
"Sarah choked on her Achilles' heel."

"If Biden's emotions cause you to panic,
"just re-apply your tactical lipstick.
"Remember the mantra
"your handlers taught'cha:
"maverick, maverick, maverick."
