"I want to thank my many supporters: Bob Wright and that one chick who interviewed me for the Beverly Hills Gazette. No one worked harder than they did or sacrificed more to make our dreams of a California without Mexicans and unions come true. Sniff, sniff. I also want to congratulate my opponent, Ms. Boxer. This was an incredibly close race, and although she completely ignored me and claimed on the day before the election that she had forgotten I was running, Barbie ran an honorable campaign. We may disagree on whether Mexicans are trying to Reconquistar us through an insidious covert plot to pick our strawberries and clean our pools until we surrender, or whether Commie unions and Welfare Queens will be the downfall of America, but at the end of the day Barb and I are both Demcrats, and I will be supporting her in November. Sure, we made some mistakes in this campaign, but we did it for the silent majority of Dems. who share our values. Thanks again, Bob and One Chick, even though I know Bob was just being sarcastic in his support and One Chick told her friends I was creepy and voted for Boxer, it's the attention that matters to me. For that, I'll always be grateful. Goodnight."
I will be happy to do your arithmetic if you will be my concession speech writer.
Also, I am beginning to wonder whether Mickey's next step, for which he might already have laid the groundwork, will be to change his name and move to South Carolina
Little-known fact: "Greene" is Messikin for "Kaus." And also, who before a day or two ago knew what his supposed "real" first name
was? It's a slam dunk, as far as I'm concerned, and I believe I am due the Congressional Medal of Honor for being the first to make this important connection.
