This was a hilarious email sent to the Badnarik campaign by a supporter, which obviously can’t be posted on the blog over there:
A lobbyist on his way home from work in Washington, DC, came to a dead halt in traffic and thought to himself, “Wow, this seems worse than usual.”
He noticed a police officer walking between the lines of stopped cars, so he rolled down his window and asked, “Officer, what’s the hold-up?”
The officer replied, “The president is depressed, so he stopped his motorcade and is threatening to douse himself with gasoline and set himself on fire. He says no one believes his stories about why we went to war in Iraq, or the connection between Saddam and al-Qaida, or that his tax cuts will help anyone except his wealthy friends. So we’re taking up a collection for him.”
The lobbyist enquired, “Oh, how much have you got so far?”
The officer replied, “About four gallons, but a lot of folks are still siphoning.”
UPDATE: Stephen Gordon, the Communications director,(active at 11:59am 10/1). Funny stuff, I think we should do nothing except tell jokes over there about the other guys since the network media won’t touch us out of fear that we might actually fuck this year’s two-man race up (gee, wouldn’t that totally screw up their predictions and cause them to work harder to cover 3 sides?).
