Here I sit, brokenhearted ...

I swear my first link to this came from The Onion. But now, it appears that Mike Huckabee really has gone to writing doggerel about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

It takes some gall -- of which The Huckster has a lifetime supply -- to make fun of another politician for liking to fly on the public's planes. This is the man who flew the State Police plane into oblivion for his political advancement (when he wasn't cadging freebies from favored state contractors and others). And don't get us started about perks for the family. Politico and others have taken note of the poem, but not the hypocrisy.

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!
