A Drink with the Candidates!
So...an icy blonde, a Hispanic, an elf from
Standing at the bar watching them are a balding New Yorker, a Mormon, some Huckabuck, and one angry
The bartender says "What'll it be?" The angry
They grew quiet, and notice a man in a black suit stroll to the door and depart the premises. New guy Barak asks the Huckabuck who that was. As a group, including the bartender answer: "The man from Diebold!" They stand respectfully and quietly. All have their hands over their hearts. A visible sigh of relief escapes them.
The bartender serves everybody the same thing: Coca-Cola, with a small shot of pepto bismol for a back up! No one touches their drink, until the icy blonde raises her glass and says: "Thank God, Swartzenegger can't run for president!" Various amens and hallelujahs come from everybody.
Spontaneously, the Huckabuck raises his glass and proposes a toast: "To all the informed voters!" The balding New Yorker says: "What have they got to do with it?" Once again, everybody breaks up, and laughs.
When the bartender says the tab is $85, the Mormon says: "Is that in soft money, or hard!" Now everybody is bent over laughing.
Working to get in the spirit of things, the angry
The icy blonde, trying too hard to be one of the guys yells: "Screw Al Gore!" The rest receive this hesitantly, but can't contain themselves, and one by one, bust up laughing. The icy blonde says: "Hey, that was a joke!"
Next, Barak says: "Has anyone seen that Joe Biden? He's sooo clean!" All are now starting to fall down from laughing so hard!
The phone on the bar rings, all get quiet. The bartender answers, listens, then holds the phone to his chest and yells loudly: "Anybody from that online magazine, TheCheers.org here?" The icy blonde motions all to hush. "Shhh!"
Unnoticed at a back corner table until now, a silver haired guy in red shoes, slowly rises, then limps to take the phone, and turns away for some privacy.
Now subdued, each attempts to straighten themselves. The angry

There've been hard feelings between Northerners and Southerners since 1861. Much of these sentiments have faded, but let's get real, not all of them.
Let's face it, as far as America's popularity around the globe goes, we're not doing so well right now. We should be brainstorming to come up with some jazzy ideas to get us back to being everyone's best bud!
I’m being kept in chains inside the cyber castle of The Cheers magazine. My editorial staff is throwing stones at me, one bigger than the other. They used to just call me bad names, but that all changed when I told them there’s no money for them anymore.
