Salon readers assess the results in five line verse:
Now NBC has a good reason,
To air “The Apprentice” this season:
For the public’s engrossed,
When its bigoted host,
Foments revolution and treason.

It’s hard not to sound off and quote,
All the brain rot that sunk Romney’s boat,
Or to shout, “You unsightly,
Extremist nuts, bite me!”
But I’m far too enlightened to gloat.
Red Hook N.Y.
I got rich by myself, so should you.
If you were smart you would know what to do,
First you pick the right dad,
Then you take what he had,
And keep those lower from starting a coup.
"Vote for me," Mitt Romney just said.
"Or else the economy's dead."
A plea or a threat,
Or him hedging his bet,
On congressional gridlock ahead?
There once was a dog named Seamus,
Whose owner had made him famous,
By strapping him to the roof,
Poor ol’ Seamus could say only, "Woof!"
As the contents shot from his anus.
At long last this great day has arrived!
And we wonder just how we survived.
The unseemly abundance,
Of rude, loutish pundits,
And the lies they so proudly contrived!
Since a visit from Hurricane Sandy,
All-a sudden the Government’s dandy.
A new friendship will forge,
And Chris Christie will gorge,
On tax money as if it were candy.
Charles Town, W.V.
