From the "no, seriously, we should really, really, really, consider a part-time legislature" files.
Why stop at creating a poet laureate position?
Such important matters to tend to in Lansing. Would-be candidate for house leadership Al Psholka is the ONLY Republican to co-sponsor HB5853. From Capitol Confidential:
“Now there’s a concept worthy of a poem.
*The measure has 12 Democratic cosponsors and one Republican, Rep. Al Pscholka, who also is maneuvering to be the next Speaker of the House. The Democrats are Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Jon Switalski, Henry Yanez, Scott Dianda, Jeff Irwin, Tim Greimel, Tim Kelly, Marcia Hovey-Wright, Adam Zemke, Sam Singh, Andrew J. Kandrevas and David Rutledge.”
Perhaps not. Maybe instead, a limerick?
There once was a Rep name of Psholka
A champion of liberal Polka
“A Poet” He said, “Would put me ahead”
For a leadership post, he’s a Joke-a
I want that appointment.
Cute, Jason! We had a little fun with the 'everybody's a poet, don't you know it' theme, last week, at WDW/MI.
"Hey, hey, ho, ho. Some of the MI legislators have got to go!"
Gridlock is good.
