Maggie wanted to see people come up with "goes into a bar" jokes involving the election, and I told her it was difficult to come up with such jokes. But in the spirit of challenge, I told her I could do it.
Here, then, is the joke I just wrote. I'm hoping you read it and think it's funny. But most of all I hope you come up with a better one and post it.
McCain, Clinton and Obama walk into a bar and sit down together at a table.
Obama waves the waitress over and says "We should order something."
Clinton says "Only Senator McCain and I have the experience to know what to order."
While Clinton and Obama are arguing, McCain says something to the waitress. She brings him a drink as the bouncer grabs Obama and Clinton and starts hauling them off.
A patron sitting at the bar asks the waitress "What did McCain order?"
She replies, "The usual."
That's my best effort. Please try it yourself. It was harder for me than I thought it would be to make up a joke from scratch.
