    NYC cabbie
    Runs dating co for riders.
    Traffics in matches.

    "Pajama blogging."
    Valid criticism, or
    Naked jealousy?

July 7, 2004

  • Well, yesterday was the big day! No, I'm not talking about Kerry's "Edwards is my running mate, even though he's much cuter and more charming than I am, damn him" announcement.

    Okay, that was important too, I'll grant you. But here's the really big news which, tragically, got lost in the VEEP hoopla: July 6 was Dubya's birthday, and Birthday Boy Bush got a special delivery gift from the DCCC folks over at The Stakeholder -- thousands of Bush birthday haiku, the results of a contest run by those creative rabble-rousers. And I'm pleased to say that one of my own contributions made it into the DCCC's Top Ten Bush Birthday Haiku list. Here's my winning entry:

    Happy birthday, Dub.
    The Presidency, you flubbed.
    Back to Crawford, bub!

    And yes, I know that, technically, haiku isn't supposed to rhyme. But you don't expect me to let a little thing like a poetry rule stand in my way, do you? Okay, just to prove I too can be obedient on occasion (but please don't tell hubby Mark), here's my non-winning entry:

    "Let freedom reign," George?
    We know that you meant "wane," George.
    You are freedom's bane.
