Well, I guess I stocked up on sleeping aids for a reason.

Goodbye, everybody!

You never know how many this sort of thing requires, so I'll say "No" to be on the safe side. I'm sure they're in stock at your local supermarket, however.

You guys are right, it's terrible that our representatives are elected by popular vote.
Breakfast- I'm havin' a time
Wheelies- I'm havin' a time
Headlocks- I'm havin' a time
Drunk Tank- not so much a time
George St.- I'm havin' a time
Brenda- I'm havin' a time
Bingo- I'm havin' a time
House Arrest- I'm still havin' a time

Well, I wouldn't hold up the Senate as a shining exemplar of "one man, one vote."

I do have one gripe.  Too many people vote on the basis of the person rather than the party.  In legislatures, with our system, that's usually irrational, as majorities pass laws and not individuals, majorities decide who controls committees, etc.  Go ahead and vote for President based on whatever standards.  But with legislatures, whatever the person you're voting for has to say is irrelevant, as it's the party platform you're endorsing.

I've been saying this for years, no matter who won.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

I vote crackpot and/or 3rd party, always. The 2 party lock down has to be broken! You think I'm nuts? Less than 200 years ago there were Whigs in this country!

get this shit: In Oklahoma you cannot vote for 3rd party candidates in the federal elections. It's fucked up.

That sucks. 2008 was the first time in 20 years I didn't vote for a third party candidate.

BUT THAT LADY SAID SOMETHING ABOUT THE SPORTS TEAMS! I think we need to simplify it even more for the dummies, so there are only two choices and they don't even printed names on the ballots. I propose everyone just mark their preference between "milk chocolate" and "dark chocolate". DARK CHOCOLATE IN 2010! We're better for your health!

Unfair fight.  Milk chocolate would nearly always win, and my candidate, as usual, would almost always lose.
