Answer: The SHORT HAND

Jumping On The NEW Bandwagon

Up until today, I have refused to ask Hillary Clinton to step aside.  Even though I’m solidly in the Obama camp, I didn’t feel it fair to ask/expect her to step aside.  She was always a strong candidate, with a strong platform.  I don’t agree with her on a number of issues, but I do respect her, and I do believe that she loves this country.  I had felt that it’s her right to stay in this thing . . . to the very end.  I didn’t think that it could possibly cause any harm.  BUT, now that I’ve read:

. . . I now feel that – for the good of the party and the process – she really should strongly consider stepping aside.  McCain is rising up the polls, without really doing or saying anything, mainly because the Democrats are still engaged in a slam dance.  I realize she still may have something up her sleeve, and she IS more connected to the Democratic party machine, but she needs to consider the long term consequences of a protracted battle with Obama.  Her calling it a day would be the ultimate sacrifice, and it would really prove how much she loves this country.

New AND Improved John McCain Scandal!

 This may come as a shock to some of you, but I feel it is my duty, as a citizen, to inform the American voters of the sordid truth of their Republican Presidential candidate John McCain.  The mainstream media, and McCain himself, has done greatly to prevent this story from becoming public.  Back in November of 1999 I personally used an over-the-counter medication and I personally engaged in politically incorrect activities with the senior Senator from Arizona.  I met John McCain at an upscale senior center in Phoenix, where we knocked back shots of Geritol before continuing the party on the senior center’s bus.  On the bus we reminisced about the women we thought we might have slept with.  We both agreed that that Mary Pickford was the cat’s pajamas!  After a few more shots of Geritol we engaged in some arm wrestling, and finished off the night of debauchery by giving each other Indian Rub Burns.  We probably didn’t get back ‘til nigh-on 8:30!

To those of you who question the veracity of my story I have proof (sort of) that this is all true.  I have a sworn statement from Myrtle Fine’s daughter Odalys that says that Myrtle was the bus driver that fateful evening, and she saw everything!  Odalys now resides at the very same senior center!  Unfortunately, Myrtle herself passed in 2004.

I am also fully prepared to take a polygraph test . . . as long as someone will be pay me $10,000 to do so . . . with the promise that I will be paid an additional $100,000 if . . . er when I pass.

In case anybody needed (further) proof that the so-called *security gains* of our “surge” is mostly smoke and mirrors . . . see this evening’s headline story at:

The cease fire isn’t officially off, but Bush and Co. can get back to sweating!

Remember folks, they don’t call it an *idiot box* for nothing!  Unfortunately, most of the radio qualifies as an idiot box a well.  And, even our once trusty newspapers are barely fit to line our bird cages and wrap fish.  Fortunately, you DO have an Uncle Rave!
