Frequently Letters to the Editor are quite funny and clever. I love this one from today's [1/15] Los Angeles Daily News that begged to be expanded.
Can't decide which candidate to vote for in the primary? Here's an illustration to help. If a fire were burning on the White House lawn, here's how each of the candidates would react:
Clinton - The Republicans started that fire and it would be divisive of me to put it out.
Obama - Let's try diplomatic means to extinguish the blaze.
Edwards - I'm not going to get rid of the blaze, but I'll apologize for it later.
Kucinich - He put the fire out immediately, but you only heard about it on Air America and Public Radio.
- Elaine Berman, Sherman Oaks
Republican candidates are conspicusously absent, so for all the Republicans, here's your quick picks in this presidential horserace.
Giuliani: A spark left over from 9/11 started it, so you can count on NYFD to put it out the minute they find a working radio.
McCain: Fire is his "friend," he supports people like Bush who've burned him.
Romney: Will put the H.O.V.F.D. (Harem of Volunteers) right on it as soon as they get done arguing about what to wear.
Huckabee: Will pray for rain.
Paul: In spite of the hype from his supporters, he'll show up last.
Thompson: Will send in the D.A. because it's an arson fire.
