Some alleged Democrats, understandably irritated by their heads being jammed far up their rectums, have, of late, been throwing temper tantrums. Lips in full-pout position, Buster Brown shoes stomping the floor, they have vowed to vote for Republican Senator John McCain should the candidate of their choice not win the final Dem nomination.

To all those singing “My way or the highway,” I offer the “Get To Know McCain” pop quiz. Feel free to take the quiz and, then, in honor of your newfound “friend,” use your tax rebate to buy a gun and eat it.

3) McCain favors the creation of a “League of Democracies” because:

b: the selling off of individual states to foreign investors.
c: a new monetary standard based on wampum.

5) McCain repudiated the endorsement of Reverend John Hagee because:

7) The reason why McCain opposed the new GI Bill is:

d: He’s a maverick.

8) McCain dumped nearly 1,500 pages of his medical records on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend allowing only 20 reporters jammed into a single room three hours to read them without the benefit of note-taking because:

c: he still thinks that Siam is in cahoots with Lower Slobovia.
d: he got burned with that whole “Hatfield-McCoy” peace treaty.

11) McCain repudiated the endorsement of right-wing evangelist Rod Parsley because:

a: Parsley believes America is destined to destroy Islam.
b: McCain hates parsley almost as much as he does beets.
c: Parsley looked so much like “Bubba” from “In the Heat of the Night,” it was creepy.

12) McCain’s medical reports indicated that he has occasional bouts with dizziness caused by:

a: harmless vertigo.
b: his wife’s Metallica CD collection.
c: keeping track of Hillary Clinton’s victory strategies.

13) McCain refers to his followers as “my friends” because:

a: “you suckers” wasn’t working out.
b: “my sheep bred for slaughter” was already used by the current administration.

b: it was confused with a nearby Special Olympics event.
c: Roy Orbison really wasn’t going to headline, as advertised.
d: neither man could decide on who would play the ventriloquist and who would play the dummy.

15) At a recent speech, McCain, reflecting on the accomplishments of his future first term, said: “Scores of judges have been confirmed to the federal district and appellate courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, who understand that they were not sent there to write our laws but to enforce them and make sure they are consistent with the Constitution.” What he didn’t mention was:

a: these judges will all be descendents of Judge Roy Bean.
b: women’s reproductive rights will be put on the endangered species list.
c: a new Constitutional amendment will mention “Torquemada” a lot.
d: states will be required to pay for their own gallows poles.

16) In the same speech, McCain said: “I want to leave office knowing that America is safer, freer, and wealthier than when I was elected; that more Americans have more opportunities to pursue their dreams than at any other time in our history; that the world has become less threatening to our interests and more hospitable to our values; and that America has again, as she always has, chosen not to hide from history but to make history.” These visions will be accomplished by:

a: spiking the public’s water supply with hallucinogens.
b: mandatory lobotomies for all citizens earning less than $1 million a year.
c: shutting one’s eyes, covering one’s ears and chanting “Be gone, reality, be gone!” at the top of one’s lungs.
d: electing a Democrat.

So, to all the demagoguery devotees out there…enjoy your tantrums and have a great time opting for four more years. You might as well start singing now, my friends: “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.”

To paraphrase Bob and Ray: “Hang by your chads.”
