Alarming Public Ignorance

“Alarming public ignorance.”
I’m shocked, I’m hurt, appalled.
How could a former justice speak
Such words, for us uncalled?
How dare she call us ignorant,
When we by habit send
The best and brightest to DC,
Our country’s ills to mend!
If we but give them extra time,
They cannot help but find
A way to cure our present ills,
And give us piece of mind.

Sandbox Diplomacy

From Cairo to Damascus,
From Riyadh to Bahrain,
Each time Obama dithers
He makes his weakness plain.
He cannot make decisions.
He knows not how to act.
His strategies are hopeless,
His tactics inexact.
He starts with senseless bluster.
He draws a scarlet line.
He lays a demarcation,
And waves his sharpened tine.
