The Lies that Bind
On the eve of the third debate, an ode to one of the great lines of the second from Susan de Sola and Ed Shacklee:
All lies aside, this tart reminder:
It wasn’t Mitt who built the binder.
Massachusetts women – tired
of being courted, but not hired –
approached both camps. The deal was done
long before Mitt Romney won;
and though the old boys called them girlies,
they had Mitt by the short and curlies…..
…Again he wants the votes he lacks:
again he says he’s got their backs,
reproduced and regulated,
for they’ll be hired when times are flush,
otherwise there is no rush.
He condescendingly reminds them
how their domestic duty binds them….
