Maybe there should be a WAY OFF TOPIC forum....
As a matter of fact, I _do_ have an opinion on that....

Quote from: "Jim"
Intoning the ghost of Davey Crocket, some of whom deem to be a true Texas hero while others declare him as the original illegal immigrant, Boise cast aspersions on the Hollywood crowd with vague movie references ("Bend what?) and a quote from Chad Stewart from "Chad & Jeremy" fame:

Quote
"Not my favorite thing to do, really"


He seemed satisfied when told that the case was not about Chad Stewart, but about that country in Africa south of Libya, but asked "There's a country hanging?"


Oh, this is getting to be FUN

I hear that the esteemed law firm of Dewey, Cheatem and Howe has been retained to lobby for the anti-Crockett contingent. Their billing clock is spinning like a ceiling fan.

VOTE! And vote often!

Except you can't do that here. I just hope the ballot box does not disappear like one did in an early LBJ campaign in south TX.

A senior advisor within the DavidW camp is quoted as saying, "Presidio, we share your concerns. We just want all the votes to count. We are aware of the missing ballot box in south Texas that gave LBJ the White House and we just don't want to see that here. Look.....we may be dealing with the same people who were behind the Roswell cover-up and the Hoffa disappearance. We have people looking into it."

Well, that did EVERYTHING to calm my fears of misdeed. Not that I don't think everything will be above board, but just in the interest of unassailable fairness I think we need Sponge Bob Squarepants as an election observer. His reputation for fairness and impartiality are beyond question.

Don't bet on that. We know things about him. However, at this time it would be improper for us to disclose what those things are.

At least we're not using the origami ballot used in Florida. You know the one. If you want to vote straight party Democrat, you have to fold it into a swan.

That was Alice, and it was the '48 Senate race.  A bullet put him into the White House, and the '64 presidential election was indeed a landslide.
As a matter of fact, I _do_ have an opinion on that....

Touched a nerve, did we? :roll: Lest you take all of this diatribe too seriously let me assure you it is all in jest. Nothing serious about it. Just having fun. :)

No problem. I had not intended anything that I had posted in this thread to have been considered "factual". :) Sorry.
