Palin the Poet

I’ve always been a great fan of the Haiku and now it looks as if my favorite Alaskan governor is popping them out by accident.

 

“Haiku” 

These corporations. 
Today it was AIG, 
Important call, there.

S. Hannity, Fox News, Sept. 18, 2008)

 

Slate has a lovely article on the poetry of Sara Palin.  Check it out.

    Wonderful! Slate previously covered the poetry of Donald Rumsfeld http://www.slate.com/id/2081042/), my favorite of which is “The Unknown”:

    As we know,
    There are known knowns.
    There are things we know we know.
    We also know
    There are known unknowns.
    That is to say
    We know there are some things
    We do not know.
    But there are also unknown unknowns,
    The ones we don’t know
    We don’t know.
