    After the embarrassing mess involving Rev. Wright, Barack Obama has decided to play it safe and spend his sunday mornings at the local pub instead of going to church.

    Not exactly Fast Eddie Felsen, but Obama could hold his own with a younger Paul Newman any day!

    After trying all other options, Howard Dean has decided that the most fair way to decide the democratic nominee is over a simple game of 8 ball.

    I have to revise this one**** HAHA

    The only pocket in West Virginia he can score. If it wasn't all white it might be a fair shot!

    Ok Hill, if I make this shot you drop out of the race, if I miss, I promise to stop calling you at 3am.

    She might win West Virgina...But I'll take Hillary and day in 8 ball.

    You'd bet me the entire $30.00 that you'll save on the federal gas tax this summer if I make this shot? No, no, I wouldn't hustle you like that. You could play a few more games with that money, just like Hillary!

    A darn good stress-buster on the campaign trail!

    The cue ball represents Hillery Clinton and each ball it nudges into a pocket represents what she is accomplishing. Pitching women is better, how? 1. Pitting race against race; 2.Going back on her given word; 3. Not satisified with having made history already by being able to run for the nomination; 4. Lieing about wanting a Unified America by pitting races against each other; 5. not speaking out against the many threats issued by her many self centered followers all the while driving a wedge between her own party; With the 8 ball being the total distruction of th Democrats chances for change at Hillery Clinton's own hands.

    Hillary to win the nomination? She'll need snookers.

    considering the fact that our current president nearly choked to death on a pretzel, making this trick shot will bring honor back to the presidency

    The only pocket in West Virginia he can get in. If only it weren't all white!

    Thinking he is on the home stretch, Obama takes some time to play VOTER Pool.
    "You just watch me bypass the yellow solid and the red stripe as I shoot for victory. He shoots...SCRATCH."

    Yellow Solid Ball = Florida
    Red Stripe Ball = Michigan
    Voter suppression of FL and MI.......shameful.

    Let's see now – – – if the white ball should knock the black ball into a hole, then game over – – – hmmmm – – – better play this one safe.
