Harvard’s Liberals Are Sly

 

Harvard’s new law school dean is a conservative.

Such deans know rich people who know how to give.

This new dean is a two-fold boon.

He’ll be bringing in money soon,

And he won’t be in the classroom, God forbid.

 

 

Children In Charge

 

After a lot of eager, childish prattle,

They raised the minimum wage in Seattle.

These workers are now hard-pressed

Because they are earning less.

And their poor employers, too, feel embattled.

 

 

At A Snail’s Pace

 

The leftist lower courts are succeeding at impeding

Reform, thanks also to the media and bureaucracy.

They are in their heyday,

So it is safe to say

It’ll be months before there’s any reform victory.

 

 

The Physician-Politician

 

In Southwest Virginia, a doctor-politician

Might find a patient to be in bad condition.

If he’s found to be disabled.

He will then be enabled

To collect insurance and vote for his physician.
