    If I told Kathleen Sebelius once I've told her a thousand times....sending me her state flower will not sway my VP decision.

    And in a surprise move, Senator Obama announced that his VP choice was Audrey Two, the star of Little Shop of Horrors.

    Obama needs a good luck charm to impress his voters with a flower.

    Maybe I need a steel magnolia on the ticket.

  13. Frank Napoleon

    Wow! Maybe I should use that flower in a Daisy ad like LBJ did against Goldwater. If they like negative.....that's negative.

    John McCain's offshore drilling will give us about as much oil as that sunflower!

    Obama is surprised by the culprit of his sneezes.

    In that moment, Barack needed his wife more than ever

    As Barack Obama demands resurrection of a dying sunflower, his audience is convinced that he has the power to resurrection a dying country.

    Oh, McCain sent me flowers to apologize for flipping on his promise to make this campaign civil?

    Can someone wrap that up and send it to Oprah as my way of saying "thanks" for the million votes.

    After weeks of weeding through candidates, Obama finally finds a running mate with mass female appeal, who won't be a thorn in his side.

    I'm thinking that a picture of Hillary Clinton's face is in the middle of that sunflower!

    Senator Obama, Sir, here is a gift for you - sent from the cute and clever Campbell Brown!

    Senator Obama decides to give up listening to the polls and use sunflower petals to predict the White House. (Yes, Im the new President, no, John McCain is the new President). The only problem is Senator Obama had to go through dozens of sunflower petals to get the "result" he wanted.

    " You see folks, this here is an example of contiued growth and an ability to shine through the worst of times..Bush would give you this flower after he ate all of the seeds "

    If that is a Bodysnatchers flower keep it away from me............McCain must be a clone because we have no idea who this McCain is.......

    Hillary's last shot:

    As a pre-convention gift, Senator Clinton sends Barak O'bama a rare tropical flower with a tiny portrait of herself in the center. Any one nearby who inhales the invisible airborne spores of this unique plant fall madly in love with the first person they see thereafter. Moments after this shot was taken, a nearby reporter speculates that Hillary's VP prospects are very much alive after hearing O'bama mumble to himself, "But what about Bill...?"
