You cannot reach across the aisle,
‘Cause everything you do is vile.
They complained when you killed Osama!
So on a train, a plane, or a llama,
Rolling a forty-four at Bowl-O-Rama,
Despite your nice white Kansas mama,
they do not like you, Barack Obama.

— Last stanza from Jon Stewart’s Oh, the People Who Hate You, a children’s book penned by the writers of The Daily Show in the style of Dr. Seuss.
