The Odd Couple: George and John
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A freak tie result in the presidential election could mean the House of Representatives would choose the next president, a scenario that would favor Republican incumbent George W. Bush.
But since the Senate would decide the vice presidency, Bush could end up with Democrat John Edwards."
Wow, that would be a trip, wouldn't it?
I see a sitcom out of this:
Bush: Listen pretty boy, I run the show here.
Edwards: I thought Cheney ran it.
Bush: Damn, you're right! What do I do now? I'm helpless!
Edwards: Don't look at me, I have only one senate term experience. Kerry just chose me because I have good hair!
Bush: Who can we get to run our country!?
(Ralph Nader enters)
Nader: Lucy! I'm hoome!
Bush and Edwards: (unenthusiastic) Hey Nader.
Nader: I heard you guys might need a little help.
Bush: Forget it Nader.
Nader: But you said if I ran against Kerry you'd give me a job!
Bush: I gave you a job.
Nader: Decoy in Iraq is not a job.
Edwards: I wish there were two americas... so i could go to the other one.
(Bill Clinton enters wearing hawiian shirt, eating a big mac, applause)
Clinton: Hey there girls, whats shakin?
Bush and Edwards: Bill Clinton!
Clinton: That's my name, don't wear it out.
Edwards: You've come to save us!
Bush: Finally, someone who knows what they're doing!
Clinton: No, guys, you got it all wrong. I didn't come here because I'm taking over.
Edwards: No? Then why are you here?
(Hillary walks in)
Hillary: Hey boys!
Bush: Aye Carumba!
