Senator majority leader Harry Reid said: “I’m going to be very honest with you — Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. He’s my pet. He’s my favorite candidate”.
Coons graduated from Amherst College in 1985 with a B.A. in Chemistry and Political Science, earning a Truman Scholarship. During his junior year of college, Coons studied abroad at the University of Nairobi in Kenya, which greatly influenced his liberal political beliefs. His article, “The Making of a Bearded Marxist”, appeared in the Amherst Student May 23, 1985. It explained his transformation from the founder of the Amherst College Republicans, to someone who realized his once-held “beliefs in the miracles of free enterprise and the boundless opportunities to be had in America were largely untrue”.
Here is the Limerick:
Harry Reid said aglow “HE’S MY PET” of Chris Coons,
But “THE BEARDED MARXIST” is one of the loons.
