Gratingly American: THIRTY-ODD POLITICALLY TAINTED PALINDROMES

WORDPLAY POST #200
Preview of an upcoming offering. Target date:  January 15, 2020.
   The current creation represents another spinoff of the recent slew of map-art blogposts. Some of these palindromic phrases had first been displayed in a blogpost in 2017. (Note that the author believes that wordplay derivations such as palindromes and anagrams are not 'invented', but merely 'reported' by canny observers, and some of today's offerings have been copied from others' reports as well as from the blog-author's earlier work). Personal political view might, however, be reflected in verse form at the bottom of the palindrome list.  

    A lot of mental energy has focused backwards and forwards on palindromes, so check out...
1) The latest in the series of map-art collections on this blog ...
INTRODUCTORY CONCLUSION: The Tourists' Palindromic Guides,
and
2) MAGICAL PALINDROMESThe specifics of the development of magical palindromes and an initial listing of examples can be found on this blogpost dating from February 2017.

3) The 'FUN with IMPEACHMENT' Collection: This posting reviews some politically-oriented wordplay dealing with anagrams, rather than palindromes, but the underlying message is the same. 
SONGLINK: If you prefer to SING about the Machiavellian machinations of our times, as well as many other topics, and you have signed up for this now-private collection, you can view some helpful material on our song-lyrics blog 'SILLY SONGS and SATIRE'. If you are interested in that unique opportunity, leave a comment to that effect on this blog, and I will add your email to the list of honored recipients of that font of delight.
