Rebecca Schoenkopf (known to many as OC Weekly’s Commie Girl) is teaching a class at UCI for poli sci majors called “Politics, Scandal and the Press” and for their final, Becca made her students write haikus, which she posted to her blog.

Here are a few of the best.

Planes crashed in New York
Pentagon West Wing destroyed
Bush in bed by nine

I bombed Iraq for oil
but gas is damn expensive
I’m such a f**k up

Walter Reed scandal
Pee and poo on pillows too
Bush supports the troops

    Yes, God forbid that college education should focus on the relationship between politics, scandal, and the press, or attempt to use a respected form of poetry to condense complicated thoughts into an elegant form.

    Complicated thoughts?

    In that case, here is my final:

    I can pass this class
    If I write three lines of crap
    Bush really sucks, K?

    Actually, this is kind of fun.

    Political thoughts
    Fit on a bumper sticker
    Commie girl, A plus!
