Jeff (Letter of the Law) Sessions is saying: " . . . but I'm not 'weaseling out' of anything! . . . To lie, you have to intend to lie. . . . You gotta think about it, . . .plan to do it, . . . wait for precisely the right moment, . . . then flat out go for it!. . . . What I said was spur of the moment. . . . How is that trying to 'weasel out' of anything?"

Donald ("I've got your back . . . in your dreams&quot Trump is saying: "And the low-point so far he was the night Ryan Owens, the heroic Navy Seal, was killed in action. And I'm not saying that just because his death disturbed me so much my tweets that night were second rate . . . at best . . . I must admit. . . . But because it was a tragedy to lose such a hero. The nation mourns. . . . Anyway, just so you know, my Tweets got better the next day, so . . . "

Donald ("What bald spot?&quot Trump is saying: "Sure I think Obama is behind the leaks, Steve, and here's why. He's jealous. . . . He simply wishes he was me. . . . I get that all the time. . . . So I hear (on great authority, by the way, impeccable authority!) that he hired half-a-dozen psychics, the best in the world, to imagine what is happening in my White house and then leaking it himself, under an assumed name of course, to the press. . . . You just wouldn't believe it!"

This is what happens when brothers & sisters don't practice safe sex. Come CAPTION Rick Santorum!!!

Rick Santorum is saying: ". . . and Obamacare has encouraged millions to scam the system especially with so-called pre-existing conditions.

The fact that others heard me lower my tone and saw me shield my mouth means nothing. . . . That's just how I am sometimes. . . . Or about the reports that said they saw me poking the F.B.I. Deputy Director with my finger in his chest, . . . well, some people don't remember it like that at all. . . . Or about my shouting at Comey over the phone later that day . . . . It had nothing to do with the Russian contacts. . . . It was a sport's bet. . . . Why would I lie?

'I'm the least anti-semitic person you'll ever know,' I think were his exact words. . . . He knows it's terribly wrong to denigrate or cast aspersions at a minority group. . . . You wanta know the reason for the upsurge in violence against synagogues and Jewish cemeteries? . . . It's the Muslims! . . . That should be as plain as the day on your face. . . .

About skip fox

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).
