A powerful senator died after a long illness. As his soul arrives in heaven, it is met by St. Peter at the gate. "Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we are not sure what to do with you.""No problem, just let me in," says the senator." Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Than you can choose where to spend eternity." Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven," he says. "I'm sorry but we have our rules." And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a club and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him, everyone is happy and in evening attire. They run to greet him, hug him, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people. They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster and caviar. Also present is the Devil, who really is a friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a big hug and waves while the elevator rises.The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on Heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him. "Now, it is time to visit Heaven."

So 24 hours pass with the head of state joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

Well then, you've spent a day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now choose your eternity." He reflects a minute and the senator answers, "Well, I would never have said it, I mean Heaven had been delightful, but I think I would be better off in Hell." So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he is in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags. The Devil comes over to him and lays his arm on his neck. "I don't understand," stammers the senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and club and we ate lobster and caviar and danced and had a great time. Now all there is is a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable."

The Devil looks at him and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning... Today you voted for us!" :shok:

VOTE WISELY THIS COMING ELECTION!!

When I went to the first Million Mom March in 2000, I collected a little badge, "Girls Can Do Anything." It's proved handy attending rallies this year. Twice the highest-ranking public official in the state has noticed it on me, and expressed appreciation for the slogan.

So I ordered some (along with a couple "Go By Bike" ones), and at this morning's rally I gave her one (which she promptly put on) and two more for the Ms's Mulhern.

Watch for it in photos!

All the polls have Granholm up by around ten. I'd say Granholm about has this one in the bag, unless something bug sways people. Booooo.

I heard a WOODTV story that the Devos campaign recently sent mailings to some homes in GR that essentially said it was OK to split your ticket, voting Devos for governor and then whoever else for the remaining candidates. Although the mailings were likely targeted at a demographic favoring Democrats, I have to wonder how many Republican voters got that mailing. Seems like he's willing to hurt some local Republican candidates in order to get additional votes for himself.

I think torgo's right. Most of the recent polls have Granholm at the 50% or above level. That's the magic number for an incumbent to feel safe. A single digit lead where you're above 50% is better than a double digit lead where you're at 45%.

I don't care who wins. I just want the automated phone calls to stop!!!!!! :angry: My vote goes to whoever goes on air and says they are stopping the calls.

One of the sleaziest political moves recently was politicians exempting themselves from the Do Not Call regulations.

That's one reason I love my VOIP phone service. No political solicitations/robocalls.

I'm glad I haven't received any calls, but I don't think it's appeared in the phone book yet either. Well actually, cell numbers don't even appear in phone books at all do they?

I get that too, there must have been someone from GR who had my number, then moved to Ann Arbor because I'm constantly getting calls from AA. Which makes me think "Man this must have been some friend to have people call his/her cell and incur long distance fees"
