  1. Norbizness says:

    It worked once, why not again?

    “Worst. Slumber. Party. Ever.”

  2. Tom says:

    After 82 debates, and a hung convention, Dean and Kerry decide who will be the presidential nominee by seeing who can last the longest without going to the bathroom.

  3. Steven says:

    Kerry to Gephardt: “I thought rock beat everything! That Howie Dean always wins!”

    Dean: “Nope! Paper covers rock, you Washington insiders don’t know squat!” and then starts dancing and singing: “Go Howard! Go Howard! Go Howard!”

  4. Katewerk says:

    Mindful of the electoral success of a former body builder turned politician, Democratic Presidential hopefuls practice bicep curls and clean and jerk, in preparation for the 2004 “Air Mr. Universe” title.

  5. When chosing from potential suitors, Dick Gephardt always says, “I’m from Missouri. You’ve got to show me.”

    “Must…increase…testoterone…levels…”

    And now, for the Impressions portion of our show…

    Gebphart: &nbsp “Y’all must believe, that I have only lusted in my heart for the Oval Office…”

    Kerry: &nbsp “S’Ok?… S’Allright.

    Dean: &nbsp “I’m a Lumber Jack, and I’m OK!…”

  10. Tibor says:

    Dean — “Look at me! My pale blue shirt is darker than both of your pale blue shirts. By the way, did I mention that George Bush has me a bit peeved?”

    Kerry — “No way! My pale blue shirt is definitely darker than your pale blue shirt, Howie. And Dick, your pale blue shirt just looks darker when viewed against your stealth eyebrows. Look how dark the sleeve of this pale blue shirt is! Now when I was in Vietnam, the VC wore these pale blue pajamas . . .”

    Gephardt — “Are you both high? My pale blue shirt is way darker than both of your pale blue shirts! Your pale blue shirts are miserable failures compared to my pale blue shirt! I am the only candidate out here with a plan to provide pale blue shirts to union families . . .”

  11. Anonymous says:

    You can figure it out Kerry – Just rotate your fist.

    Kerry: How come Howard Dean gets to answer all the questions? I can’t get this damned buzzer to work!

    Dean: If I get bigger tits, I’ll lock the trannie vote.

  18. pdxgeek says:

    Gephardt: How do you plan to win John?

    Kerry: If anyone disagrees with me I take this fist and shove it up their ass.

    Dean: Um… Alrighty then! I’m just going for a little walk (mutter)far away from you freaks!

  19. “You are two wild and crazy guys!”
    “Wanna see my impression of Bob Dole?

    CNN’s newest TV program: The New Three Stooges,
    with John Kerry as Moe, Dick Gephardt as Larry, and Howard Dean as Curly.

    And your preferred method of launching a pre-emptive missile would be ?….

  23. FergalO says:

    And your preferred method of launching a pre-emptive missile would be ?….

  24. rodney dill says:

    Suddenly anticipating a much more difficult time campaigning in California with the ascension of Arnold, the “boys” brace themselves for the San Francisco bath house circuit.

  25. DavidE says:

    In a truly revealing moment at the Democratic debate last Thursday, after being asked a question about National Security, Howard Dean – D VT, breaks into song to garner the Homosexual vote:

    Dean: “I feel pretty…
    “Oh so pretty…
    “I feel pretty and witty and gay….”

    While John Kerry – D MA, not to be outdone, challenges Dick Gephardt-D MO to a ‘Thumb War’ for ” …all the marbles…”

    And Mr Gephardt, in an astounding display of ADD/ADHD, was heard giggling with glee and muttering, “Hey John, did ya hear Howie? He said Gay, tee hee, tee hee. Ooh, ooh…and my name’s Dick, tee hee, tee hee…”

  26. mark says:

  32. In the contest to see who can keep their hands off their privates the longest, we have a clear winner! As a reward, he may now touch himself.

  33. Rachel Edith says:

    “My triplets advanced individually. Dickie laughs a lot and unfailingly writes excellent concession speeches. Johnny has always had great hair. Of course, I’d ask Howie to close the door when he’d sing along to his favorite song.”

  34. Rodney Dill says:

    No matter how many times they practiced, Dick would always break out laughing when it was his turn to chime in to “Row, row, row, your boat.”

  35. Chris says:

    Gephardt gets the last laugh when his plan to slip laxatives in leaders Kerry and Dean’s drink comes to an explosive conclusion.

    On TV one night sat our three Dems,

         Which one girned as he sat?
    And which hand has the five M&Ms?

  39. AK says:

  41. Ev! says:

    Gephardt: “So, Howie, what are we wearing tomorrow?”

    Kerry: “Are you guys SURE Bob Dole holds the pencil in THIS hand?”

  42. Rodney Dill says:

    To celebrate the comprehensive diversity of the Democratic presidential front-runners, John Kerry wears a red tie.

    GEPHARDT: “The choice is me, or TweedleDee and TweedleDum here.

    Dean: “If I am the Democratic Party candidate I will pull George Bush’s balls apart, then crush them like grapes.”
    Gephardt: “Gee… I like grapes.”

  47. Hodink says:

    Gephardt says, “Dean, it’s rock, paper, scissors. Nice try, but two rocks simply don’t win!”

  48. Hermoine says:

    Kerry can’t watch as the Boston Red Sox … well, you know. Just another milestone in the Curse of the Bambino timeline.

  49. mojo says:

    Kerry: “Hey, pull my thumb!”

    Gephardt: “Ha! Nice try. I been around, ya know…”

    Dean: BRAAAAAAAP!
    Boy howdy, no more mexican food and beer for me!

  50. Tara says:

    In a disastrous public flirtation with the 1980’s club move, The Running Man, presidential hopefuls today proved with near-scientific accuracy that white men can’t dance.

  51. Rodney Dill says:

    One of the gatherings that some Republicans, in retrospect, would refer to as “Munchkinland prior to the arrival of the Wicked Witch.” It was more commonly referred to as the Democratic Primaries before Hillary announced her candidacy.

    He’s ready, Dick. Don’t worry. I’ll find your gerbil.

  55. Rodney Dill says:

    John Kerry was utterly astonished as his fist started making sexually explicit comments about Howard “the duck” Dean. Dick Gephardt could only smile as he realized that all those hours of practicing ventriloquism were finally paying off.

  56. Rachel Edith says:

    The hypnotist was exceptional. The first guy laughed just like a hyena. The second guy started to recite Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. And the third guy was dancing the Funky Chicken. Everybody loved it!

  57. yvonne in albuquerque says:

    Play that funky music white boy…

  58. Dara McLoughlin says:

    Dean : “Yes John, opposable thumbs. Another advantage over the neo-cons!”

  59. Deanie Weenie #17462 says:

    In the moments after the brawl at the recent debate, John Kerry experiments with the mysterious fist technology employed by Howard Dean to punch out Wesley Clark. Meanwhile, some Dick still has the chuckles from Al Sharpton’s earlier audience-mooning antics.

  60. Deaf, dumb, and stupid.

  61. Jack says:

    None of the above.

  62. 83% of Americans shown this picture could not identify any person pictured.

    The DEM championship charade team, demonstrating:
