Obama the Post Turtle, a Limerick.

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year-old rancher, who’s hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president. The old rancher said, “Well, ya know, Obama is a “Post Turtle”. Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a “Post Turtle” was. The old rancher said, “when you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a “post turtle”.

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “you know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb @$$ put him up there to begin with.”

Post turtle, post turtle, why are you there?
Soros is evil and he put me here.
I have to come down’
I am but a clown,
for I don’t belong in the stratosphere.
