This thought came to me last night as I was trying to go to sleep...

Does anyone remember the old Woody Allen movie, Take The Money And Run?

Do you remember the scene in there where he and his gang go to hold up a bank, and halfway through another group of robbers come in and try to hold up the bank?

And, remember his reaction? "All right, everyone who wants to be held up by us, stand over here, everyone who wants to be held up by those guys, stand over there"?

Doesn't that remind you of elections?

Here's another:

One of my favorite books of cartoons, Boffo by Joe Martin, has a cartoon in it that shows two guys crawling through the desert. They're hot, they're sweaty, they're thirsty, you know the whole act.

One of them is wearing a wristwatch.

The other one says to him, "Is it my turn to wear the watch yet?"

Now, doesn't that remind you of politics? All hell's breaking loose all around them, all that politicians can be concerned about is whose turn it is to wear the watch?

I'm with summerlady. If you're stupid enough to let Michael Moore, or Al Franken, or Rush Limbaugh, or Ann Coulter, or anyone in Hollywood tell you how to vote, then for God's sake, do yourselves and everyone else in this country a favor and stay home.
