Salon readers show mercy for General Petraeus, but none for Sen. John McCain, R. Ariz., in this week's limerick contest:
"An outrage is what we have here,"
Said McCain, leading Fox News to cheer.
The Benghazi 'collusion'?
Was merely delusion,
Designed as a Susan Rice smear.
Obama’s new hashtag is meant,
2 help middle class taxpayers vent,
Via tweets 2 demand,
That their tax hike is banned:
#My2k’s needed 4 rent.

The sad lesson of General Petraeus,
Is not that our heroes betray us;
But the ugly glare of publicity,
Along with our share of complicity,
Does more than our sins can to slay us.
James W. Moore
