To your left. Underneath ads and such.

For sure....I've always thought, when I see Bush....put him in a wheelchair...and some horn rimmed glasses and cg voice...and, hey! it's Steven Hawking!!!

As if! More people need to vote for the hat one!

barney...i knew there was something about him...

... he's clearly not been the same since Spot died.

Still, you wouldn't have thought it.

No, the highlight will be when, in a surprise move that clearly makes her the frontrunner for 2008, Hillary Clinton endorses George W Bush, and is named his VP candidate, replacing Dick Cheney.

Top that!

Will Cheney sound like Darth Vader when he gives his "hologram" speech.

A Star Wars spoof has to be a certainty from the left (with Kerry as Luke Nuancewalker) if they had a sense of humour. (They do have one don't they.)

Just what would have been SO wrong about sacrificing Al Gore to the spirit of Barry Goldwater, huh?

We don't even have to kill him -- poking him with a sharp stick would be enough for most of us. It'd beat the hell out of most of the speeches...

So many great choices on that list. It was soo hard to pick only one. Had to go with the Sarin. I can almost see the expression on Chaney's face.

This is one that could happen:

A vet takes center stage and tells the crowd that Kerry stole his 'lucky hat' along with the special-compartmented briefcase he kept the hat in. He tells Kerry he wants the hat, and the briefcase, back. This vet then bores the crowd for hours retelling stories about how the 'lucky hat' saved his life on countless occasions. We then learn the *real* story of THAT HAT.

Turns out this guy would bore everyone with stories about THAT HAT. Kerry took THAT HAT just to get the guy to shut up. Kerry's fellow vets agree Kerry *was* a real hero that day. Everyone was sick to death of listening to hat stories.

Had to go with Condi and her Official Bitches of the USA list. Tuck Saudi Arabia on the end, and it's the Compleat List.

Great poll, hard to choose. The Bush/Hawking thing cracked me up, so I went with that.

Posted by: Dr Alice at August 26, 2004 at 01:46 AM

I agree, Dr. Alice. I think when Bush ghostwrote Universe in a Nutshell, he was thinking of Islamists.

Why does Pollhost say, ``Sorry, you've already voted in this poll'' when in fact I haven't?

(For the record, I voted for the Colin Powell/Magic Hat option.)

Hey, Jay,

How's this?

Hillary in stunning news conference announces she's straight and resigns from Senate.

I liked the Hawking one.

According to Brett Farve (QB for the Green Bay Packers, an American Football team), he's always being told that he "sucked in his role in that movie, There's Something About Mary."

He says his response is usually "Yeah? Well, how many movies have you sucked in?"

Folks here and around the world love to call President Bush dumb, including some of the radically liberal members of my own family. My response is "Yeah? what kind of grades did you get when you went to Harvard Business School?"

Bingley, you BASTARD!!!

Still, you wouldn't have thought it.

ilibcc Well, so DON'T. That Clinton feline Socks started all these hateful rumors, because they preferred Buddy the Lab to him. Barney's straight and a patriot.

MISTER Blair It's ashamed you should be.

Bingley, you BASTARD!!!
