How could adding Triumph to the GOP not be funny?

En route to impromptu stinque up with flippin.
I received this story on Facebook from my friend Mike Marshall, one of Mo Rocca’s stars of “Electoral Dysfunction”. Hope you all take time to see this film.
Subject: Only In Indiana
Only Hoosiers truly understand the humor. The year is 2036 and the United States has just elected the first woman as President of the United States. A few days after the election, the president-elect calls her father in Indiana and asks, “So, Dad, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?”
“I don’t think so. It’s a long drive; your mom isn’t as young as she used to be, we’ll have the dog with us, and my arthritis is acting up in my knee.”
“Don’t worry about it, Dad, I’ll send Air Force One or another support aircraft to pick you up and take you home, and a limousine will pick you up at your door,” she said.
“I don’t know. Everybody will be so fancy. What would your mother wear?”
“Oh, Dad,” she replied, “I’ll make sure she has a wonderful gown custom-made by one of the best designers in New York.”
“Honey,” Dad complained, “You know we can’t eat those rich foods you and your friends like to eat.”
The President-elect responded, “Don’t worry, Dad. The entire affair is going to be handled by the best caterer in D.C. and I’ll ensure your meals are salt-free. Dad, I really want you to come.”
So her parents reluctantly agreed, and on January 20, 2037, arrived to see their daughter sworn in as President of the United States. The parents of the new President are seated in the front row. The President’s dad notices a senator sitting next to him and leans over and whispers, “You see that woman over there with her hand on the Bible, becoming President of the United States?”
The Senator whispered in reply, “Yes I do.”
Dad says proudly, “Her brother played basketball at IU.”
I thought this was particularly appropriate as the preseason rankings have the Hoosiers ranked #1.
@Mistress Cynica: YAAAAYYY! Two of my favorite Stinquers! And why am I not there? ;-P
@Mistress Cynica: Are you on some pilgrim route? Are you donkey bound? I thought you were off to Europe. But no. You seem to be on some kind of pilgrimage across Nebraska. You won’t find Lourdes. Pack more gin.
More weirdness on the campaign trail: Along with my Florida morning newspaper I was privileged to receive a copy of “Decision2012” “Who are the Romneys?” And who’s picture is on the upper right corner of the front cover of this 12 page slick color booklet? Right! Angelina and Brad. If you can stomach to read inside you will learn that the father and mother support the Mittens. All this is brought to me by “Ending Spending Action Fund” and of course, “this is not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.”
Such is life in south Florida. By the way, long lines at the early voting locations (big ballot). Have a nice day in the northeast.
