There Is Laughter In Hell, And In Hart Seely's House

Donald Rumsfeld has spared the life of Hart Seely's book. It'll be a while yet before the popular poetry volume shares flea market space with The Spiro T. Agnew Coloring Book and The Reagan Wit, the Secretary Of Defense implied to reporters in Kuwait City today.

"The election is over and the president asked me if I would be willing to stay on and I told him I would be delighted to do that."
The Secretary went on to bust one of his patented boasts:
"I am fortunate/I have good health/I do not have young children/I am able to do this."
Congratulations to my friend Seely. And to the rest of the world, particularly those of you who live in the Middle East: aren't you happy for Seely?

I don't know this guy, Sealy, or what put the bone in your craw about him. But you know what? I'll tell you what: Nobody's ever going to put words from your news conferences into poetry. And you know why? I'll tell you why: For one thing, you don't give news conferences. And another thing, when you look at Rumsfeld, you know what you see? I'll tell you what you see. You see a guy wearing clothes. Not like in comic books. Clothes, Superfrankenstein. Think about it. And when you decide what to say, call a news conference.

Donald Rumsfeld doesn't have to wear clothes. He actually looks that way naked.
