Crooked Timber has posted a nasty bit of pro-war verse written by some poor demented classicist, along with an apology from the poster on behalf of classicists everywhere.

Awful poetry is funny enough on its own, but the comments are even better. At first glance, I wanted to give the Best Comment prize to "Vogons have infiltrated the GOP", but then I ran across one that simply said, "Saddam Hussein wrote worse", which has the dual advantage of being true and a note-perfect parody of every comment thread I've read in the last six months.
