   Here are some palindromes, mostly concocted recently. Some of these palindromic phrases had first been displayed in one of our blogposts 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 views are also reflected in verse form at the bottom of the palindrome list. (Originally, we were going to devote this post strictly to palindromic utterances, but couldn't resist the temptation to add some poetry.) 

    A lot of mental energy has focused backwards and forwards on palindromes, so check out...

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.
