    Poll: In Match-up Between Hillary and Kerry, Most Democrats Would Choose Suicide

    Survey Spells Trouble for Dems, Pollster Says


    A new survey of Democratic voters indicates that in a hypothetical match-up between Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and former presidential nominee John Kerry, most Democrats would choose suicide over either candidate.

    This may be too close to the truth to be much of a joke.

    I've been saying that for years here in Oz about the 2 majors. All the polls are "on a two-party prefered basis"....so when asked if I'ld prefer little "honest" johnny howard or Beazley as PM I'ld take the firing squad option every time.

    Well, that's what makes it funny. Substitute "Condi Rice" and "John McCain" - it just falls flat (I tried it, doesn't work).

    Absurd & silly is funny; stupid isn't (imHo).

    Gallup Poll: Many Plan to Support War in Iraq if the U.S. Wins


    An electrifying new Gallup Poll shows that a large percentage of Americans plan to strongly support the War in Iraq if the United States is able to win it. Conversely, many respondents plan to haughtily fold their arms across their chest and announce,“I just KNEW that was a bone-headed idea” if the war is lost.

    You are correct (I started to say right, don't you know) on both counts. This is funny, and the substitutions just wouldn't work at all. Thanks for the joke!
