Archive for the ‘political cats’ Category
Well, of course I know that politicians are not in actuality, cats of the feline persuasion.
But don’t you think that when their hackles rise up on the House floor or dramatically in front of cameras and microphones – don’t they kind of remind you of old tomcats hissing and growling at one another trying to defend their territory?
Maybe it’s just me. Or somebody needs a good catnap on his/her office sofa, cellphone OFF.
Anyway, Mr.A. Cat, an agent formerly in service to our nation but now retired to an undisclosed location, has phoned in a new political limerick to his contact, my boss, Lim over at Lim’s Limericks where I do the typing…because cats don’t have hands. Also my spelling is a bit better, but not by much.
Yes, it’s an unpaid position but it’s the least I can do for the mysteriously elusive Mr.A. who put himself at risk so many times on our nation’s behalf while foregoing the soft cushion in the corner by the fireplace as most kittycats would do being the creatures of comfort they are.
How often have I asked this burning question: who knew that cats could be so political? and not yet have I received a satisfactory answer from man or feline on this issue.
So the feed for Lim’s Limericks is now added at the end of the feeds list in my sidebar hereupon if you should wish to check out Mr.A.’s latest limericky growl…seems he’s concerned over our November 4th elections – and who wouldn’t be? Can I get a Meow Meow?
Besides, everyone knows that cats have opinions of their own and obviously hold membership in the Independent Party, yes? There’s an unsubstantiated rumor going round that some political cats may even be affiliated with the Libertarian Party.
So at worst I’m guilty of allowing the political cat limericks of Lim and Mr.A.Cat to help me get through the merde of the Washington litterbox by laughing at these jokers whose mamas must’ve taught them better than they’re doing against us. Rrraorrrww-w-w!

Well, the November 2008 prez election is closing in and will be here before we know it - I waited for you long as I could but apparently you hadn’t written anything of the rhymery persuasion so it had to be done such as it is:
This rhyme’s not the fault of Mr. A. Cat…all the blame’s on me this time.
Of course, you could’ve stopped it but you didn’t. And I know you’re busy. We’re all busy. I just happened to have an extra 25 minutes earlier tonight and this is one of the things that can happen when you give me a pen, paper, and some free minutes.
Okay, my peace has been said now so I’ll go watch Kiefer Sutherland on The Late Late Show with TV’s Craig Ferguson (sans moustache, thank goodness.) Reminnnnd you of anyone?
At last! Mr. A. Cat has gotten through to us at Lim’s Limericks with a freshly scratched limerick which seems to apply to Barack Obama’s recent overseas tour of presidentiness:

There once was a cat from Iran
who got hot and turned on a fan
it wasn’t enough
to cool off his fluff
so atoms were split in Tehran.
He worked long and hard on the splits
while George threw incompetent fits
by acting so proud
no weapons allowed
or sanctions will come in a blitz.
So who gave the arms race it’s start?
who played the gargantuan part?
could take the world out
but that wouldn’t be very smart.
Be careful or you’ll find more spycats, political limericks and rhymeries, plus a few kitty cat photos at:
Here’s The Guardian on the EU’s new banking freeze of Iran’s assets:
As I’ve flitted about the interweb this morning reading world opinions on yesterday’s historic win for…gasp!…a black man, it seems America has impressed most of our fellow earth dwellers with her powers of reinvention.
Except in Pakistan. There a man was found to plop the terrorist fly smack dab into the middle of the Obama ointment because of an answer given months ago to the question of the US acting alone within Pakistani borders if the intell warranted it.
Sullied Sovereignty! It’s such a thorny question and situation since it’s not as if the billions paid to Musharraf and friends has resulted in much action against the terroists living within Pakistan’s mountainous regions. Is someone supposing the billions might be cut off if there’s an Obama in the White House?
That Obama has “threatened” Pakistan even before becoming president so he’ll be “more dangerous than Bush” seems to be a tactical view designed to help McCain in November in similar fashion to threatening bin Laden tapes being released just before US elections. Will people fall for this manipulative jingoist claptrap again?
Osama bin Laden (if indeed he had anything to do with the timing of the tape releases–lets’ ask HoSec), retained the ones he needed to justify his jihadist campaign so that America would be sure to stay in the Middle East. Does Rove have to do EVERYthing around GOP headquarters? Sheesh, give the hair-challenged fellow a rest, why doncha?
Bush’s Second Verse: McCain Refrain
Keeping the “war on terror” going will seemingly justify at least some of the Bush Doctrine and Cheney’s shotgun-1% Gang mentality while continuing to fuel the tank of the new world government coffers as they march the world toward the abyss of totalitarian regimism.
And the pleas of the American people, while hithertofore disregarded on Capitol Hill after November 2006 and disenfranchised by a secret government ruled by the secret hand, are now apparently in play with Obama’s candidacy. Tiresomely, that McCain has Karl Rove and his minions behind him to undermine our wishes once again is a political given.
The American people have always much preferred Peace and have had to be lied into war several times through the years by larger-agenda’d presidents. Will Obama toe that line as well?
How could he not with the secret backing he’ll need to move into the Oval Office? And if a landslide vote can do it for him, he’ll be in danger if he fails to buckle under the pressure to change his enitre value system on behalf of the globalist plan for world domination.
Sadly, we’ve trusted our government in the past and this is what it’s come to. Lies and dirty dealings from the GOP–with Dem Party enabling–will continue to be on OUR agenda with McCain in the White House for sure, with Obama there…maybe not so much. And can you listen to McCain drone for four years?
Yet hope really does spring eternal in the human heart. It’s finding a beating heart in Washington that’s the problem.
Mr.A.Cat has sent me a fresh political limerick in honor of Obama’s win in Montana, so if you’re ready for a groan you’ll find it published here:
Sorry but it’s true:
See the depths of what prez campaign fatigue can lead to? Even my cats are complaining (photo of Wiley included in above-linked post. He’s a longhaired beauty but oh so wumped out!)
Spycat in training? Here’s Topaz showing Wiley how to snoop…photo by Maya.
Yes, it’s true…Lim the political limerickster has written a new rhyme to be found here:
and I, Lim’s roommate, am only the typist, remember…
Feline Whereabouts Update: Mr.A.Cat, the original inspiration, bard, and muse of Lim’s Limericks, is still overseas on a tres secret mission. His imminent date of return is currently unknown, but you can still check out Lim’s political rhymeries written in honor of Mr.A.Cat, an agent formerly in service to our nation.
Where may he be? I don’t know and Lim won’t say. Waterboards won’t work on such a stalwart fellow as Lim–he’s seen it all before and has had excellent training, the rumor goes.
In fact, I’ve never laid eyes on the elusive Mr.A. and I confess with nary a prod: I don’t even know what the “A” stands for!
Years back our family lived with a beautful Turkish Van, aka the “swimming cat”–now there’s a fellow who would’ve been immune to waterboarding.
Sidebar Shout-Out: new Page, ‘Solar Eclipse Series: 2008 = 1990′ is up now if you’d like to mosey over to the Sidebar on your left….
Prop your ganda every day
never mind what people say
they don’t like it that’s too bad
common good was just a fad
Elite values for the few
what would Adam Weishaupt do?
Pen a rhyme describe frustration
farewell to our sovereign nation
corporatism welfare state
Speeches for the unwashed masses
sell them lies and kick their as*es
Washington and New York City
London Cairo lookin’ pretty
Hoarding money grasping power
Richard Cheney’s finest hour
Wall Street just a ponzi scheming
think you’re winning must be dreaming
Laws all slanted toward the rich
fairness run into a ditch
taking back is what must be
fight again for Liberty.
–Lim and jc 1.8.08 poem imported from
for your groanworthy enjoyment.
And did you notice takes-one-to-know-one Bush in Liberia saying that “it’s easier to tear down a country than to rebuild a country”??
Astounding to think that he doesn’t Seem to relate such pontificating words to his own misguided actions.
Guess hypocrisy wouldn’t be so hypocritical if it weren’t unconsciously served on an arrogant platter next to a whopping side order of political platitudes a la pie-in-the-sky that’s been drizzled in cold greedy gravy.
It plum ruins an appetite.
Well, not s’much anyway.
But you will find a blend of Art bwo my oil and watercolour pencil drawings, and Politics bwo Political Astrology (actually called, Mundane Astrology) here at Jude’s Threshold where I like to smoosh together all my interests including Political Cat Limericks which I purloin from:
(kitty litter scratches from our main bard and muse Mr.A.Cat, an agent formerly in service to our nation–contains some cat photos, too);
(looking under the hood of Politics bwo the Stars overhead–AND it’s linky rich);
and there’s the occasional mention here of modestly priced Art Downloads from my Lulu Storefront:
plus, you are welcome to request a particular image for addition to Lulu if you find one you favor overmuchly, perhaps from:
(mask-infused, archetypal, Chiffonery and Erotic Art–for 17+ers);
(cosmic, moon, botanical, children’s, and Fairy Art);
(botanical portraits of tropical fish ensnared within their private dream scenarios–Saturn’s realism meets Neptune’s undersea illusions.)
So I hope you’ll mosey by a blog or two on my list for Stars, Politics, cat rhymeries, or to view some of the online gallery images which make up this web of snuggly fabric of creativity which I’ve weaved into a tapestry just for you!

Princess Grace has reluctantly allowed me to post her short little limerick concerning tonight’s SOTU address:
And you may see a black’n'white photo there of the lovely feline herself!
