A Little Campaign Humor

Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John McCain were flying to a debate.

Barack looked at Hillary, chuckled and said, "You know I could throw a $1,000 bill out of the window right now and make somebody very happy."

Hillary shrugged her shoulders and replied, "I could throw ten $100 bills out of the window and make ten people very happy."

John added, "That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills out of the window and make a hundred people very happy."

Hearing their exchange, the pilot rolled his eyes and said to his co-pilot, "Such big-shots back there. I could throw all three of them out of the window and make 156 million people very happy."

I don't think I have ever been so disinterested in a presidential election campaign as I have been this year, historical or not. The above joke pretty much sums up how I feel. Where have all the great ones gone? I would even settle for mediocre right now. If this keeps up I might jump out of the plane myself, and they don't have to pay me!
