Doggerel Campaigning: Tom Geoghegan

Hendrick Hertzberg pointed out these limericks from the "Tom Geoghegan for Congress" website, as aids to pronouncing his name.

There’s a place where corporate crooks are ragin’
Filled with people more slimy than Fagin

The name for this mess

Is the U.S. Congress

Which is why we need Candidate Geoghegan.

-Brian Cook

There once was a candidate Geoghegan

Whose name rhymed quite oddly with “pagan”

He battled the rich

And Blagojevich

Like Martians they fled from his raygun.

-Brian Beutler
