rhymes on the Newsworthy Times Alec, Ken and Mitt

Maybe since i have always worked since I was 16 even while attending Stanfblord and Yale Law School I have tended to be economically conversative with have spent most of my formative years and summers in Alaska socially liberal and libertarian. One of my pet peeves has always been the very liberal tilt of Hollywood and the respect given to many of the actors and actresses as being experts usually not obtained with any experience or learning but rather a good role and a good script. Alec Baldwin whom I believe to be very good actor but asea when it comes to politics, posted on the Huffington Post a blog about Mitt Romney and why his Twitter comment on "Ken" might have been misunderstood given the limit on characters. The poem was prompted; hope you enjoy it. As always if you like brevity 240 iams always found on

Alec, Ken and Mitt
This muse never thought he would see the day,
Until maybe very old and very gray
That a liberal celebrity made expert only with scripts
Attracting like media to record all words from his lips
Would make an observation that as a muse I will affirm
Twitter's limits on bits will make most writers squirm
Baldwin in today's Romney blog
Brings his Ken comment out from the truncated fog
Mitt is the real deal, if he can get by the rabid primary right
Who has the right stuff to bring us out of the deficit and recession long nights.
We have crossed the creed barrier with JFK
Ferraro and Palin put the gender demons at bay
Obama has to our credit put the race barrier to rest
We should also be able to Mormon fears also arrest
Only one regret as a member of Stanford class of 69
Mitt after a mission came back not to the Farm but BYU for his student time
Leaving the Cardinal without another alum to the Depression memories of Hoover remove
If he could solve the Winter Olympics before the snow melt, in 4 years this mess he should improve
Alec nice blog though I hope the Obama Blues remain peacefully asleep and content
And you have more Doolittle-like roles rubbing off so your liberal leanings might somewhat relent.
