Over the course of my five years and eight months of blogging, I have only written about Donald Trump a handful of times. I've avoided writing about him in this campaign season because I think he'll get bored with campaigning and drop out of the race in a few months. I figured I'd mention The Donald in light of Rachel Maddow's comparison of his feud with Fox News as a Godzilla vs Mothra style battle. Yeah, Trump is kinda like Godzilla, stomping the GOP that awakened him from his slumber in abyssal slime, and Trumpzilla has become a meme, with this image being a particular favorite of mine. I don't see myself giving much coverage to The Donald, but snark is paramount to me, so without further ado, here's my concise take on Trump's campaign:
With a purposeful grimace and a terrible rug,
He stinks up the TV with his godawful mug.
Helpless people on the campaign trail.
Scream bug-eyed as he rants and he rails.
He picks up a mic and he talks with a frown
As he blames all the problems on the people who are brown
Oh no, they say he's got to go go go Trumpzilla
Oh no, there goes Rubio go go Trumpzilla
Media shows again and again
How Rachel points up the folly of men
This doggerel, based on a comment of mine on the linked story, is a parody of a classic Blue Öyster Cult song:
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that I cribbed the BÖC-lyric-as-post-title schtick from these fine folks- if you're going to steal, steal from the best.
