BROKEN ELBOW, OKLAHOMA

19AUGUST2008



After much consultation with noted Democratic leaders around the country, presumptive presidential nominee Barack Obama has selected a political unknown for his running mate. Largely unknown outside Oklahoma, his choice for vice president is Dr. Walter Crankset, a researcher and political activist at the University of Northeastern Oklahoma, extension campus in Broken Elbow. Doctor Crankset said in a brief interview this morning, that he was looking forward to the challenge of the fall campaign, mainly because it would help him pay off his bar bill highlight various political causes.


Oklahoma's Republican leadership was stunned at the selection of Dr. Crankset. “He's a wanted man in at least 3 counties,” said Billy Joe Doug Igniewtowski, whose daughter was once engaged to Dr. Crankset. “If he crosses the county line, I'll see his sorry butt in jail!”


It promises to be an interesting fall campaign.

I'm from a big German/Polish/Serbian family, so those family names sporting an over-abundance of consonants are kinda second nature. Honestly, though, I really miss the food. You can't get good kielbasa here in Oklahoma, but pierogies are available. Most of it gives me tremendous heartburn. Some things are worth the suffering.

Leave it up to those muckracking Republicans to bring in unsubstantiated criminal allegations instead of talking about the real issues of Crankset's proven leadership.

He said something about 'moral turpitude' also, which is one of those character traits Wally seems to be over-endowed with, at least as far as young ladies are concerned.

I think there was a reference to all this on Google News earlier. I'll have to find it.
