White House Press Corps Poem Pokes Fun at Mitt Romney & Clint Eastwood

Every year, one member of the recently criticized White House press corps writes a holiday poem for its annual party.

USA Today reports that SRN News radio correspondent Greg Clugston wrote the poem this year.

The piece made references to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney‘s slight against Big Bird and actor Clint Eastwood‘s infamous conversation with an empty chair. Here’s an excerpt:
