There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

An election day strip from Gaggle. My opinion of the evening news is pretty much the same as Dave Barry's, that it merely exists to provide advertising space for the sellers of denture adhesive and laxatives.

Today's Day By Day shows us the ill effects of either one too many face lifts or too much Botox. And, while I'm on the subject, summerlady pointed out this article (which I was going to recommend to you, wingguy), which deals with the fairy tale of Republicans "stealing" votes. Listen, don't try to pull that BS on the guy from Chicago, where I'm probably voting right now.

On a completely different subject, Cox & Forkum deals with the fate of Ramsey Clark's client.

I don't know why President for Life Bush hasn't simply canceled these foolish elections. Relying on software tampering and voter intimidation just seems too risky.

The really weak minded people among us will always attack the legitimacy of any contest they lose. Watch what happens when some Republican somewhere in the country wins unexpectedly.

Thanks to both of you for finding and posting that bit of breathtaking arrogance.

Don't make me laugh like that...I pulled a muscle in my chest a couple of weeks ago (when we were moving all of the stuff from the building in Chicago) and it still hurts when I laugh. Or breathe.

I always think of something that Skip Caray (who I'm sure you recognize as lead announcer for the Braves as well as the son of long-time Cardinals, White Sox and Cubs announcer Harry Caray) says: that's why they play the games. That the Republicans will be swept from office is a foregone conclusion among members of the mainstream media, and I'm sure Speaker-to-be Richbitch is spending the day at Neiman-Marcus picking out drapes for her new office and John Conyers is in the basement of the Capitol planning his impeachment, so I'm certain that if the Republicans do anything but lose complete control of Congress, there'll be the usual hue and cry from the Wolf Blitzers and Katie the Chipmunks and every member of the Jackass party that the election was "stolen" just like in 2000. The fact is that they're all trying to follow the advice of Sun Tzu, who said that if you convince people you're going to win anyway, you've already won, which is silly nonsense. The truth is that it's in the hands of the voters, and they really have no clue what the voters are going to do. I think they're in for a very unpleasant surprise.

That's something that you and I can agree on.

And the Day By Day was funny.
