Okay, I admit it...

...I'm not as eloquent as Dave Barry (but then, I don't look like Stephen King's harmless, decidedly un-evil and less popular little brother either, so I've got that going for me)

Here's some spot on-election coverage from Barry's Miami Herald column:
• Barack Obama is our next president, which is very bad because he is a naive untested wealth-spreading terrorist-befriending ultraliberal socialist communist who will suddenly reveal his secret Muslim identity by riding to his inauguration on a camel shouting ''Death to Israel!'' (I mean Obama will be shouting this, not the camel) after which he will wreck the economy by sending Joe the Plumber to Guantánamo and taxing away all the income of anybody who makes over $137.50 per year and giving it to bloated government agencies that will deliberately set it on fire.

• Or, John McCain is our next president, which is very bad because he is a 287-year-old out-of-touch multiple-house-owning fascist who will rape the environment and build nuclear power plants inside elementary schools and reinstate slavery and create tax loopholes that benefit only people who own three or more personal helicopters, after which he will declare war on the entire United Nations and then keel over dead and leave us with commander-in-chief Sarah ''Flash Card'' Palin.
hat tip to Donna.

  1. Excellent! Sums up the past couple of years quire nicely. Praise be to Allah it's over.

  2. Do you see why I was an undecided voter for so long?! Very funny. Leave it to Dave Berry, sage of our (the end of) times.

  3. Off topic comment. K-State was feisty last night. It's a better team than it's record indicates and good lord, your QB is huge. The NFL is salivating already for that guy.



Your turn to riff...
