How to Get Past Obama Depression from a Reader

Many of us conservatives get down from time to time because of what we see happening in our nation. We each deal with these momentary bouts of Obama “depression” in our own ways. Some of us turn to sports, movies or various other forms of entertainment. Some of us like to lose ourselves in books. Some of us spend our time focused on family, friends and loved ones, or by pursuing our hobbies.

Recently one of our dear readers emailed us to let us know how she worked out her political frustrations – and boy is it neat. She had some inspiration from one of my favorite writers, Mr. David Lawrence.

This is from Barbara who lives in Niles, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago.

As an antidote to my fury at the unbridled antics of this administration, I alleviate it with what I call, “Politicalimericks.”  This in appreciation of Mr. Lawrence’s column:


We once were a ship of state

With unbounded belief in our fate

But the tide took a turn

That we did not discern

When we picked the wrong first mate


And here’s another:


There once was a man named Kerry

Whose thinking is downright scary

He’s now on the stage

As a diplomatic sage

With luck he will not long tarry



That’s great! Thanks Barbara for sharing your wonderful talent with us!
