my turn to be political



One sunny day in 2005 an old man approached the White House from across
Pennsylvania Ave, where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the
US Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with
President Bush."

The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Bush is no longer president
and no longer resides here."

The old man said, "Okay" and walked away.
The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the
same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Bush." The
Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Bush is no longer
president and no longer resides here." The man thanked him and, again, just
walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very
same US Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Bush."

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and
said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to
speak to Mr. Bush. I've told you already that Mr. Bush is no longer the
president and no longer resides here. Don't you understand?"

The old man looked at the Marine and said, "Oh, I understand. I just love
hearing it."

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow, Sir."

I dedicate this to mrpunkerotic and rcondon and others, please encourage all to vote.
