I took a crap this morning and the McCain turd went down first, so I can confirm these results.

Hey, remember that college that always does a mock election in the winter and has gotten it right every time for the past century or something? And they picked Hillary? And some kid from that college came in here and said we might as well stop talking about it because the college made their pick and they're ALWAYS right?

Ha ha.

I don't know why this bothers me in particular when there are so many things wrong with that photo. But WTF is with that "beard"?

How about the Rand McNally seeing which candidate's name is in more town/city/county names? Its been accurate ever since they first did it like in the '60s.

I'm pretty sure there are more Johnstowns and Johnsonvilles and McCain countys than Barakburgs or Obama countys

Pest Management People. Now that's a group that you naturally associate with the word 'Winners'

Are these guys affiliated with Tom Delay?

It seems like a pretty good mechanism for predicting electoral outcomes, but there are still a few bugs in the system.

Wow! That brought back a flood of childhood memories.

Woman: "Why don't we try going in the other way?"
All: "That'll never work."
Guy: "Hey, what if we tried going in the other way?"
All: "Great idea!"

This carries repercussions for the cockroach population. Locals will call these guys day and night to get those God-awful Republican cockroaches out of their house.

They'll ask that the termites, who exhibit behavior eerily similar to that of Democrats, be spared, however.

//I like the idea just the same.

I didn't RTFA, so I was going to say something about New Jersey Waste Management's endorsement and post a pic from The Sopranos, but screw it...the article's stupider than that joke.
