Enough said.

Al Gore, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama on Judgement Day

This was sent to me and I just had to share it.

Don’t ask me how, but only the grace of God can make this credible.

Al Gore, Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama go to heaven…

God addresses Al first..

”Al, what do you believe in?”


Al replies:

“Well, I believe that I won that election, but that it was your will that I did not serve…
And I’ve come to understand that now.”


God thinks for a second and says:
“Very good. Come and sit at my left.”


God then turns and addresses Bill.

“Bill, what do you believe in?”


Bill touches his nose and replies:

“I believe in forgiveness.  I’ve sinned, but I’ve never held a grudge against my fellow man, and I hope no grudges are held against me.”


God thinks for a second and says:

“You are forgiven, my son. Come and sit at my right.”

Then God turns his gaze toward Barrack, and asks:

“Barrack, what do you believe in?”


Without hesitation Barack steps toward the throne, throwing his thumb over his shoulder, he replies:

“I believe you’re in my chair.”


Apparently no one showed them


Missouri’s well-known nickname is the “Show-me state.”  I’ve known this all of my life but I never realized just how true this statement is.  April 7, Harry Stonebraker handily won his bid for a fourth term as mayor of Winfield, MO garnering 90% of the popular vote.  There was just one small hitch, Mayor Stonebraker died of a heart attack nearly a month earlier.

Ballots had already been printed so damn the consequences and on with the election.  The decision seems foolhardy to me but in Missouri voting for dead people is a tradition – if not the law.  Gov. Carnahan died in a plane crash on October 17, 2000 but won election to the Senate on November 7.  Being dead in Missouri is a political asset.  One local resident noted that Stonebraker and Carnahan greatly increased in popularity following their deaths.

In fact, Missouri law prohibits the removal of a candidate’s name from a ballot within a given period prior to an election.  Call me crazy but it seems like a law that might not have been completely thought out or one contrived to prohibit an election from being influenced – even by the death of a candidate.  If the reasoning is the latter, it works.  The people of Missouri love voting for the dearly departed.  It’s just a bit unclear to me if its due to sympathy, loyalty, or disbelief until they attend the viewing.
