It is remarkable how many people can't grasp the concepts of rhyme and scansion. But there were some good (and clever) efforts. Like this one, which I think would be improved slightly in sound by replacing the "so" in the last line with "such."
They hinted and winked at "Obama"
And how well it rhymes with "Osama"
But speaking of names
Do we want "Son of Cain"?
That's not so good Biblical karma!

My favorite, however, was this:
This limerick is written by Palin,
And I'm just gonna ignore your liberal media "gotcha" rules and requirements
About rhyming, which is also
A socialist agenda
So too and also in my experience
As a mayor of the buckets of job creation
I can see Russia from my house

The latter did win an honorable mention, by the way.
