Your Turn, Senator Graham

Somebody must have noticed this but I haven't seen it in print before.  Anyway, review the bidding: Harry Reid say's he has heard that Mitt Romney paid no taxes for ten years.  Romney demands that Reid prove it--as DeLong observes, meaning that Romney demands Reid release Romney's tax returns.

But comes now the centrist, gentlemanly Lindsey Graham to say that Reid is a "liar."

But how would he know?  I tend to think Reid's claim is implausible, but I can't say, can I, because I haven't seen the evidence.  In order to decide whether or not he was a liar, I'd have to have, you know, like, seen the tax returns?

Can we then infer that Graham has seen the tax returns?   Would he care to tell us what is in them?

Reid is Right as Rain ...and Willard is all Wet.
‘Cause Americans have a RIGHT to see the tax returns
of anyone who wants to be their President --the highest office in the land.
NO if’s, ...No and’s, ...and NO big fat but’s about it!
Case Closed.

ESPECIALLY with someone like Mitt -whose past and present life is
full of flip-flops, questionable business practices, tax loopholes,
hidden assets and investments, ...and who knows what else.

Confession is good for the soul, Mitt. Even for someone as soul-less as you.
So just Relax, Repent, and Release your Returns, Mr. Romney
…OR… go back to Playing with your Pet dancing Ponies.

Come out of your gold-plated 10-car closet Mitt, and STOP with this
“Don’t ask, Don’t tell” nonsense! No problem -we’ll understand.
Unless …perhaps ….just perhaps …you’re HIDING something, dear Willard?
Inquiring minds want to know.

And you want even MORE tax cuts and loopholes for you and your rich buddies, Mitt? 
WHAT GALL! These fat cats aren’t satisfied - they want it ALL ...EVERYTHING!
But tell me Mitt, just how MANY cars and houses can you hog?
And just how MANY silver spoons can you stuff into your smirking mouth?

Mitt baby, you can fool some of the people some of the time,but -please-  take my advice:
IF you just want to run for dog-catcher then KEEP your  precious tax returns,
and clean off your car roof. OTHERWISE, if you wanna be our President, THEN PUT UP,
or shut up and go away ….preferably BEFORE the convention.

The super-rich think that they have the God-given right to do anything they want in this
great country -while the REST of us get screwed! ENOUGH!!! The divine right of kings
ended a long long time ago Mitt. And so should your sorry excuse for a candidacy.

Nothing personal, guy. Really. Super-Rich, arrogant, power-hungry Republicans are people too!
It's just their "culture" that bothers me (as you're so fond of saying).
‘Cause making lots and lot of money can be SUCH a dirty business. Right, fella?

BOTTOM LINE: It’s Laundry Time, Mitt.
------SO COME CLEAN------.
I’m from the “Show Me” State....where it’s not enough to just SAY you’re “not a crook”
....AFTER you’re President Tricky Dick Nixon.

Said Stanchaz:(previous comment) "The super-rich think that they have the God-given right to do anything they want in this great country -while the REST of us get screwed! ENOUGH!!! "

No, not enough. What about droit de seigneur? When will a Republican dominated government bring that back?

Crankily yours,
