For an Ultimatum, Humor ad Infinitum

The Madison Co. Democart "leaders" chose to ignore Dr. Tim Bagwell's 2004 Congressional Campaign (& omit his name from the sample ballots & other campaign materials). They deserve the latest highly predictable threatening ultimatum from Rep. Shimkus.

The So. IL Democrat constituents have to live with the
Party's perpetual perfidiousness & do not deserve it. For them, a little humor.

"In a radio speech this weekend Bush said I will not be satisfied until every American who wants to work can find a job. Then Bush went back to his five-week vacation."
- Conan O'Brien

"President Bush is now in the second week of his five-week vacation down there in Crawford, Texas. He's been taking a lot of criticism for this long vacation and his aides say he has his laptop with him so he can still play Solitaire and Minesweep -- so it's business as usual."
- Jay Leno

"So Congress is on recess and Bush is on vacation -- the town is empty. It's so lonely in D.C. right now the NRA and the Oil lobby are just giving money to each other."
- Jay Leno

"President Bush talked tough today. He said he's not backing out, he's staying the course for as long as it takes. He's in it for the long haul. Not Iraq -- his 5-week vacation."
- Jay Leno

"According to President Bush's most recent health results, he's the most fit president in history. He's in the 99 percentile for men 55 to 59 years old. Bush said he could make it into the 100% league if his damn job didn't take up most of his morning."
- Jay Leno

"A lot of people are every critical of President Bush for taking the entire month of August off for his vacation. But his staff points out, there's nothing at the White House he can't do at the ranch because the ranch is fully equipped. It's got the treadmill, the weight room, the jogging path, the big screen TV, they get Nickelodeon. It's got everything he would do."
- Jay Leno

"It turns out President Bush can run again in the next election. Now I know you're only supposed to be allowed two terms, but the Supreme Court said if you count his vacation time, he's barely served one."
- Jay Leno
How about another deal? John Shimkus gets "elected" to his old job as Madison Co. Treasurer -- a position to which he excels and is most suited.

ROTFL! I missed that Leno segment.

Excellent state-politics blogging, BTW. I perceive that as ever so important for our future. Thanks!
