...hunting, I'm heading out again. But before I leave, I want to get another political joke thread started. The other one just seemed to dwindle away.
Here's one I've always loved. You can re-do it to implicate your favorite ignoramus in Washington, but this is one of mine.
A Texas Congresswoman was seated next to a little girl on the airplane leaving from Houston when she turned to her and said, 'Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.'
The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the total stranger, 'What would you like to talk about?'
'Oh, I don't know,' said the southern Congresswoman. 'How about global warming or universal health care', and she smiles smugly.
OK, ' she said. 'Those could be interesting topics. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?'
The southern legislator, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, 'Hmmm, I have no idea.'
To which the little girl replies, 'Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming or universal health care when you don't know $hit?
