HOH’s One-Minute Recess: The Poetry of Politics

Are you looking for the perfect gift for that liberal, tea-party-hating friend of yours? Look no further than the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s online gift shop.

The DSCC is selling poetry magnets that take aim at — who else? — the Republican Party.

Each magnet set features 55 words that can be rearranged to make a personal political statement. The $6 set includes words such as birther, failure and obstruction, as well as the names of conservative stars such as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and right-wing pundits Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

“When you order our poetry magnets, you’re not just getting a fun gift,” the online advertisement reads. “You’re helping to elect Democrats to the Senate and that’s never been more important.”

After all, nothing says Christmas like giving the gift of the Senate majority.
