Elinor Lipman has just published her book of election inspired tweets. Tweet Land of Liberty: Irreverent Rhymes from the Political Circus charts the daily, hilarious tweets she wrote, starting in June, as she followed the shifting political landscape. The twittersphere went crazy for them--and now they're available in the booksphere(?), too.
She even wrote us a special poem to commemorate the publication of Tweet Land of Liberty.
made this stupid pledge last June,
could've been a lead balloon.
poems are hard to fit,
there's a lot that rhymes with "Mitt."
felt the strains of writer's block.
takes a village to amuse....
then--a gaffe or breaking news!
knew these poems were so respected,
they've been published, all collected.
book so cute & undersized,
have to say I'm flabbergasted
long this Twitter thing has lasted.
like to thank the candidates,
just hope they won't retaliate...
