'He's Not One of Us' - By Calvin Trillin, Deadline Peot of The Nation

I could not resist having this little poem posted here. I guess it is the complement of the previous posting about the 'Angry white man: He is one of us'. Only, this one is about Obama not being one of them.
This is copied from The Nation, a great liberal progressive publication.
'He's Not One of Us'
As John McCain's chances seem weakened or dead,
Republican rallies become mobs instead.
They have no civility left--not a shred.
They curse at Obama, their faces bright red:

"A traitor!" "A terrorist!" "Off with his head!"
"He's not one of us," Sarah Palin has said.
Lucky him.
