Backward to the Future

Joe Biden wasn't running for president,
but nobody believed him until he delivered
a long campaign-style speech to announce
that Joe Biden is "No" Biden,
and that he is still not running for president.

John Boehner resigned as House Speaker,
then agreed to stay on as House Speaker.
Paul Ryan, who has wanted to be Speaker,
said he wouldn't be Speaker,
and is now going to be the next Speaker.

And the GOP continues to pursue Hillary Clinton
in its witch-hunt / wild-goose-chase
called Whitewater, um, I mean, Benghazi.

Yesterday was the date on which
Marty McFly came back to the future,
-- and a day in which our politics
seemed to go backward toward the future
when it wasn't just going in circles.

Ponder presidents, primaries and Paul Ryan
over pints with political pals
at you local progressive social club.
