    Obama – “Jeesy Peesy, Hillary!”

  40. Elmo says:

    Well, if we approach this in a detached and superficial manner … then yes I’m a woman, and he’s black. And John McCain’s a really old white guy. If we don’t win this time, then next time we’re going to run an albino hermaphrodite on roller skates.

    While it may be too early to talk about cabinet appointments, I’m thinking bamboo or red oak.

    Look, I’ve seen him dance … and he can’t cha cha.

    I know for a fact he’d cancel Easter, the 4th of July, Halloween, and Christmas.

    We are determined to take back the White House. No matter the cost to our dignity, or yours.
