Republicans: Debate 3



Fox’s business channel from the outset made it clear
The GOP contestants would be very welcome here.
No issues would be raised that might be beyond their reach
And if they didn’t like the question they could give their usual speech.   

 Ben Carson has a manner that belongs to him alone
Speaking utter nonsense in a reasonable tone.
Eventually you’ll find that he’ll be landing with a thump
When Republicans decide he’s even crazier than Trump.

 Ted Cruz has five departments on which he’ll shut the door
But when he came to name them he could only think of four.
Why not close the entire government and see the whole thing gone?
Except, of course, a bigger, more expensive Pentagon.

 Carly Fiorina says she’s champing at the bit
As a challenger to Hillary she insists that she is it.
She has a three-page tax code, but if we made the switch
It would be just another give-away to benefit the rich.


            Perhaps they would have been better served by following a Steve Benson cartoon. He lined up all the candidates at their podia with their mouths taped shut..
