And no surprises either. Edwards says he and Kerry will fight for every vote.

  1. Oh no…. NOT AGAIN!

  2. If he means fight for every vote the way Gore fought for every vote, then that means they’ll fight for every vote which swings their way, and discard any vote which doesn’t.

  3. So they want to fight, eh? Fine. I propose:

    In the event that neither candidate wins a clear 1% majority on election day, then at dawn the next morning the matter shall be settled by handing each candidate a revolver. It’s ten paces, turn and fire, on the White House lawn. If neither survives the duel, then repeat with the VP candidates.

    I figure it’ll be done and over in time for lunch.

  4. Terry,

    Since revolvers are illegal in DC, it would have to be a knife fight. But that’s even better — even the winner would get slashed up real good.

  5. Good idea Teryy. Us taxpayers could save a (small)fortune in retirement and security benefits. It not nice to say, but think how much dough we would have saved had Clinton died on the operating table or if Reagan wandered onto a busy highway 10 years ago. Don’t put me in charge of social security.

    Actually, posession of handguns in DC isn’t entirely banned–it’s just limited to law enforcement officers and members of the military on duty. The president, as the chief of the Executive Branch, is arguably a law enforcement officer, and certainly active-duty military as commander-in-chief. Sadly, unless the challenger is also a LEO, this method would leave him at a stark disadvantage.

    You bet — you forgot Carter!
