I'm pretty lathered up about Speaker Nancy Pelosi's outrageous allegations that the CIA is lying and now denying she ever was briefed on waterboarding. She's either not telling the truth or has lost the necessary mental skills of basic memory to remain in her job.
I decided to express my feelings in the form of poetry. So, with apologies to Robert Frost and kudos to Edgar Allan Poe, here's my take on this insanity with Ms. Pelosi:
By Mike Huckabee
Here's a story about a lady named Nancy;
A ruthless politician, but dressed very fancy.
Very ambitious, she got herself elected speaker,
But as for keeping secrets, she proved quite a leaker.
She flies on government planes coast-to-coast,
And doesn't mind that our economy is toast.
She makes the Air Force squire her in their military jets;
There's room for her family, her staff, and even her pets.
Until now, she annoyed us, but her gaffes were mostly funny;
Even though it was painful to watch her waste our tax money.
But now her wacky comments are no laughing matter;
She's either unwilling to tell the truth, or she's mad as a hatter!
She sat in briefings and knew about enhanced interrogation,
But claims she wasn't there, and can't give an explanation.
She disparages the CIA and says they are a bunch of liars;
Even the press aren't buying it and they're stoking their fires.
I think Speaker Pelosi has done too much speaking;
And instead of her trashing our intelligence officials, it's her nose that needs tweaking.
If forced to believe whether the CIA and her colleagues in Congress are lying,
Or it's Speaker Pelosi whose credibility and career is dying,
I believe in the integrity of the men and women who sacrifice to keep us safe;
Not the woman who has been caught flat-footed, lying to our face.
I say it here and I say it rather clear:
It's time for Nancy Pelosi to resign and get out of here.
