"OK, so here’s the deal. This ’08 election is gonna be a slam dunk. The Republicans have proven they can’t lead the country; Bush has the lowest approval rating since Nixon during Watergate. As long as we play it safe, there is no possible way we can lose this thing. So, any ideas?"
"Oooh, how about we run a woman for President?"
"I like where you’re going with that. Sounds like a safe bet."
"What about a black guy?"
"But what if he doesn’t have a lot of foreign policy experience?"
"No problem. We’ll just find a black guy whose name rhymes with both 'Iraq' and 'Osama.' That way, when the average American voter hears it, the first thing they’ll think is “foreign policy experience.”
"White House here we come!"
We like you. Do you like us too?
Don't ask me again.
