The Race


A Georgia boy named Newt Gingrich
Has a presidential thing itch
But he suffers from insomnia
Because of Mitt Romney

    Really just a play on words -- my last name being Moorman and Mormon being the religion. The only connection is my great friendship with Andrea Deitrich. She understands. Thanks again for your support. It means a lot to me.

    hahahaha. Do you think Romney has a chance? A Mormon for president. Will the people get behind him? I know some in the south are really down on my religion. YOu did really well here, Curtis. I think you are getting better. It's short and fun!!!

    I'm really loving these clerihews. I'm gonna make a list of names and write about each of them in the very near future. From one "Moorman" to another "Mormon", Romney and Gingrich should really join forces and pull together. They could become President and Vice-President and change the face of politics and America.
