Phoning Fluke

By on 3.3.12 | 10:36AM

President Obama has time to apologize to Sandra Fluke, the deprived Georgetown University Law School student. Apparently, though, no time for tornado victims, grieving families of soldiers murdered in Afghanistan, the Syrian opposition, stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions, protecting Israel, authorizing Keystone, reducing spending and the $16T debt?

Phoning Fluke
   By Asher Embry

Our heartland towns were ripped to shred;
The homes demolished, dozens dead.

The Muslim World is more aflame.
Iran still plays its doomsday game.
In Homs, the death toll surges higher.
The Afghan situation's dire.

And higher still the gas price goes;
So, too, the debt the U.S. owes.

Yet, nonetheless, Obama took
The time to ring up Sandra Fluke
To urge she wage her noble fight
Forever to enshrine the right
To study law and fornicate
Wherever she'd matriculate
(With contraceptives free of cost
No matter other freedoms lost).

It's comforting Obama sees
His critical priorities.
