Worth checking out if you’re not a regular viewer of The Daily Show: Calvin Trillin banters with Jon Stuart and reads some of the poems from his “epic” Deciding the Next Decider: The 2008 Presidential Race in Rhyme.
Some excerpts from Powell’s entry:
Obama’s rhetoric, she said, was lofty
But unsubstantial air, like Mr. Softee.
His party was no longer torn asunder,
And all he’d had to do was knuckle under.

And often leaves but few of them unsaid.
On Russia’s being not too far away
She sounded eerily like Tina Fey.
