  75. - train111 - Thursday, May 29, 08 @ 1:49 pm:

    Governor Goodhair, the Senator and Richard Daley are all on a sinking boat. There are three of them but only 2 life preservers. Gov. Goodhair states: “I must have one of those preservers–after all, I’m the best looking of all of us, and there will be mass unemployment in the hair care products industry if I go down, not to mention that readership and postings on the Capitolfaxblog will be decimated if Illinois actually has a functional Governor.”
    The Senator states: “I must have one of those preservers. After all, I’m about to become president and leader of the free world. I’m much much too improtant to go down.”
    Richard Daley suggests that they hold a vote. After all the ballot challenges, he remains the only candidate standing. He brings in the HDO to muscle in on the election and goes on to win unanimously.

    Presidential Nominee Senator Obama smirks as he and Mayor Richard M. Daley of Chicago are informed they are going to be named as adjunct professors at the School for Governors at the federal prison library in Terra Haute, Indiana. The school founded after discovery of former Governor George Ryan’s rampant handwritten notes in the political philosophy books, is rumored to be headed by Governor Blagojevich who has been angling for a spot in the prestigious facility for two terms as Illinois Governor. Head of admissions, Patrick Fitzgerald, had no comment.

    Daley pondered the thought, but later clarified he would take the position only if he could speak at commencement and get a full tenured position at the facility. Senator Obama’s chief strategist responded in a statement that his attendance record in Senate clearly reflects he, and he alone, would change the expectations of a professor.

    The big 3 tell their best jokes

    Blago : Any fool can tell the truth, but it requires a man of some sense to know how to lie well.

    Obama : I’m an idealist. I don’t know where I’m going, but I’m on my way.

    Daley : The key to being a good manager is keeping the people who hate me away from those who are still undecided.

    Rod: Can you believe Harmon used my BS line about “selling pension bonds is like refinancing your home mortgage” on the Senate floor today?

    Barack, laughing: No! It took me four times to convince Emil that wasn’t true!

    Rich: Don’t tell him again before you take off. I’ve got a big mortgage to refinance.
