‘What a sham!’ Rep. Jared Polis pens an anti-Cruz, anti-shutdown poem

Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., is known for his unusual social media antics. He recently criticized the “extra-double lesbian loving” Barilla chairman over his stance to not feature same-sex couples in the company’s advertising. And he once tweeted a photo of himself rolling around on the ground like a happy dog.

Today he decided to write a poem criticizing Sen. Ted Cruz over his effort to defund Obamacare. At one point during his 21-hour filibuster, Cruz read Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham” into the Congressional Record. Remarkably, he managed to tie his recitation into the subject at hand, “because 3 1/2 years ago President Obama and Senate Democrats told the American people, Just try Obamacare. Just try it,” Cruz explained.

“There were an awful lot of Republicans who were very skeptical of it, I think for good reasons, but very skeptical,” he continued, “And we were told try it, try it, try it, try it. Unfortunately, through an exercise of brute political force, Obamacare became the law of the land. But the difference with ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ is when Americans tried it, they discovered they did not like green eggs and ham and they did not like Obamacare either.”

Polis, on the other hand, likes Obamacare, but he did not like Cruz’s filibuster, not one bit.

I do not like Ted Cruz reading Green Eggs and Ham
I do not like it, Patriot I am"

What a Sham!
by Jared Polis

I do not like Ted Cruz reading Green Eggs and Ham
I do not like it, patriot I am.

I do not like him reading it when government is in a jam
I do not like his fake filibuster scam,

I do not like it when Obamacare repeal he tries to ram
or says to breast-cancer survivors “Sorry ma’am”
“I will not insure you in a boat,”
“I will not insure you across a moat,”
“I will not insure your child with asthma”
“I will not insure your disorder of plasma”
“No I will not ensure you or your fam,”
“I will not insure them, Ted Cruz I am”

No, I do not like Ted Cruz reading Green Eggs and Ham
And shutting down government without giving a damn,
No I do not like it, I do not like it,
I do not like it, patriot I am.

This guy’s about to be sent to bed without a bedtime story:
