You rushed the story to the media elite,
under the specter of certain defeat,
pretending not to see
in the backwards B
the flag of surrender, the white sheet.

Voices from Main Street:

Limericks unfiltered by the media elite:

from Dennis:

A wonderful girl is Sarah,

a regular Scarlett O'Hara.
Her attitude's strong,
her issues all wrong
you betcha she's bad for this era.

from Joel:

It appears that your campaign is cursed.
First female veep? You san't be first.
But for guys with low education
out in Lowry's Red State nation
you'll always provide sweet starbursts.

from Speck Backfire:

So Palin has bought a new wardrobe of clothing
with campaign money for the electorate's beholding,
but fashionable Neiman Marcus
won’t save the party’s carcass
if Republican policies are still the object of loathing.

Thanks to everyone who's supporting the American Center and submitting limericks. With only eight days left, we're issuing an open call for Election Day, and Post-Election Day, limericks.
