GOP Congressman Resigns Over Explicit Messages To Minors

by Tony Peyser

Representative Mark Foley is gone because of e-mails
Which his party wishes had all been sent to females.

Foley was regarded by campaign experts as a shoo-in
Before word got out about just what he'd been doin.'

The awful smell from this scandal in this election year lingers
Wear goggles or you'll get hurt by Republicans pointing fingers.

New Book By Watergate Journalist Is Critical Of War, White House

by Tony Peyser

Bob Woodward clearly wants us
To re-evaluate his fame
Tarnished by not admitting what
He knew about Valerie Plame.

To oppose the unpopular Bush
Bob shows he's using his noodle
But, like Blair, for far too long
He simply was Dubya's poodle.
