Purpose of the Press

The Prez now assails the free press,

No alternate scapegoats I guess;

Their reporting on trials

Spurs him to denials  –

He still could give pardons, if stressed.

Salute to McCain

Let’s give hail to the statesman McCain,

Whose achievements of service remain;

In the Navy or Senate

He lived by this tenet:

“May our high moral standards sustain!”
