Sparkle Pony Poetry Corner, Michael Steele Edition

http://peteykins.com/sparklepics3/SteeleUrinal.jpg

YOU CONTINUE TO BUILD AND REACH
OUT AND BRING NEW MEMBERS TO THE
FOLD AND AGAIN, TO SHARE SOME OF
THE CORE BELIEFS OF OUR PARTY
AND WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT.
CERTAINLY TO THE LEADERSHIP OF
THE RNLA AND MY BUDDY BOB, THANK
YOU FOR THE CHANCE TO BE HERE,
TO SHARE SOME INSIGHTS.
NOW, I HAVE GOT A LEGAL PROBLEM
THAT I NEED YOUR HELP ON.
HAS ANYONE SEEN MY PUPPY?
BECAUSE I HEARD HE WENT
HOLLYWOOD AND I'M TRYING TO GET
ALL THAT WORKED OUT BECAUSE IF
HE GETS PAID, I WANT TO GET
PAID.
AND THAT'S HOW THAT SHOULD GO.

The above, sent by Pony Pal™ Supreme/CSPAN secret operative Fritz wasn't meant to be gripping, surrealist poetry, but is in fact the closed-captioning from Michael Steele's speech to the Republican National Lawyers Association (scared yet?) on March 30, 2007. What was he really saying? With verse like that, who cares! Somebody, please give that captioner a Pulitzer!

I feel like I am 10 years old again and can hear Donny Osmond singing "Puppy Love" in the background.

I'm going to make an immediate connection with the next Robert I meet, so I can have a BUDDY BOB of my own.

1.) Michael Steele -- bassist for the Bangles?
2.) First he says he wants to talk about core values and then he says he wants to Get Paid for work his puppy does, when he can't even be bothered to keep track of the damn thing. Sounds about right to me!
