Great Review of Calvin Trilling's new Book

I ran across this review of A Heckuva Job: More of the Bush Administration in Rhyme on Amazon and it's a classic:

Our nation's second term-ite, June 1, 2006
Reviewer:Jon Hunt (Old Greenwich, Ct. USA) - See all my reviews
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER) (REAL NAME)
The president's a perfect foil
For author Calvin Trillin.
The nation's in a big turmoil
Thanks to our dimwit villain.

But to the rescue comes "C. T."
Who sheds some light on "Dub-ya".
Each page evokes a firm "teehee"
And will the right way rub ya.

His commentary lights upon
Those Bushies lacking shtick.
There's Mushroom Cloud and Orange John
And Five Deferments Dick.

Yet our commander is the one
That Trillin writes the most of.
It could be said that when he's done
The president's made toast of.

I highly recommend this work
For wit that's nicely offered.
And in '09 that White House jerk
Is goin' home to Crawford.
