Dogfight:The 2012 Presidential Campaign in Verse

Calvin Trillin

Since 1990, writer Calvin Trillin has composed his weekly “Deadline Poet” columns -- humorous poems about current events -- in The Nation. Now he’s summing up the 2012 Presidential campaign in verse, just like he did in Deciding the Next Decider: The 2008 Presidential Campaign in Rhyme. Who’s better than Trillin to satirically write about Obamacare vs. Romneycare, Newt, Perry, Paul, Bachmann, Santorum, Super PACs, and memorable moments on live television?
