JOTD

An email from Ireland to all of their brethren in the States. . .a point to ponder whatever your political affiliation:
We, in Ireland, can't figure out why you people are even bothering to hold an election in the United States.

On one side, you had a pants wearing female lawyer, married to another lawyer who can't seem to keep his pants on, who just lost a long and heated primary against a lawyer, who goes to the wrong church, who is married to yet another lawyer, who doesn't even like the country her husband wants to run !

Now... On the other side, you have a nice old war hero whose name starts with the appropriate 'Mc' terminology, married to a good looking younger woman who owns a beer distributorship!!

What in God's name are ya lads thinkin over in the colonies!?!?

We like to play "democracy." It's a personal FREEDOM thing. Let's all go secular and save the world for people who think for themselves rather than accept the biblical brainwashing of dead people. Are you ready, Ireland?

Some people can't take a joke.

I think it would be hard to brainwash dead people.

AVI:

Excellent point.

We are holding the election to focus people's attention on people (McCain, Obama)other than the ones in power now and their deeds which are daily diminishing our previously great nation.

We are holding an election to help the news media stay alive with the money being spent on promoting the candidates.

We are holding an election to give "little" people the impression that we have democracy in the USA even after the Supreme Court dissolved democracy on December 12,2000.

News Flash! The Bush administration will be leaving Jan 20th...
Please, you thought our nation was great when?
What with its treatment of native americans, black people, imprisonment of japanese-americans and Hiroshima? Just have the decency to admit the truth, you've never thought this was a great country.

"We are holding an election to help the news media stay alive with the money being spent on promoting the candidates."

News Flash! The MSM is dying because of a little thing called agenda journalism. $ won't help.

"We are holding an election to give "little" people the impression that we have democracy in the USA even after the Supreme Court dissolved democracy on December 12,2000."

Little people? How very elitist of you...
News Flash! The NYT investigation of FL revealed that Bush WON. Gore wanted to recount only the FL counties that favored him...that's called cheating. And the referee is supposed to disallow that.

A final news flash! Maintaining a complaint based in an untruth is known as whining...get over it.

Of course not:

Read response number 5 from "matt s"

(number 3 is from me, "duh")

================

OTOH, they will be quite happy to elect one. And it will be a much, much better joke than this one, although no one will be laughing at all once they get to the punch line...

Mind you, the other joke isn't anywhere near as funny, but the punch line will be much less dissatisfying in the end.

Dear Friend from Ireland:

While standing, close your eyes and touch your nose. OK, now blow into this little tube. OH SHIT! The breathalyser says you are DEAD!.

I don't understand you Irish......

/joke


As for jokes about McCain, see here - like Obama he can hold contradictory views simultaneously. What a lovely character trait.

Remember when the USA was growing economically and expanding opportunities for the lower and middle classes? In those olden days votes were counted by hand.

Who killed John F. Kennedy? The Warren Commission?

Dear Ireland,
We are running amuck. Please come and help save us. We changed our minds. Maybe it's better to be a colony. Who knows? I suppose the population of India is better off today then they would be if not colonized by the British. Or India could be different and equally well off or better off if the British had not taught them English and miscellaneous productive ways of bettering the physical well-being of a lot of people alive today. I guess it is like the Africans who were brought to the USA to be slaves. Improper start, but positive long-term impact. The cultures of Africa which include slaveholding, diminishment of the humanity of women and other such things have not been kind enough to African men, women or children, e.g., Darfur. I'm willing to be humble, Mr/Ms Irisher, you take over the world and just please make everybody healthy and happy. Thank you very much. And, now, what about those Russians. They are at it again. Seems as though each culture has its own subtle variations on the SHEER INSANITY theme. Here we go again. Stick to the song and poetry and industrial productivity and drop the Irish whiskey and maybe your plan will work. Mexicans are leaving machismo in Mexico when they come to the USA. Aren't they? They are, aren't they? Russian immigrants are not allowed to drink vodka while visiting or residing or being in the USA.....I think. Not sure of all the facts I am presenting here, but I know you are. Thank you.
