Election Update

The Fuselage is a sad place this morning after the passing of George Carlin so let's discuss something happier, namely presidential politics.

First off, the Caroline Kennedy thing is getting some serious traction as we can see by my man, Ken Rudin's latest Political Junkie column as well as this dodgy blog.

Next, here's some great news about the election, John McCain and Barack Obama are both left-handed and both write with a claw! Our next president will definitely be left-handed (unless you think Bob Barr will win. Vote for him, I dare you!) and as this list I just read* shows, America's greatest presidents have all been left-handed.

  1. Harry Truman
  2. Bill Clinton
  3. Ronald Reagan
  4. Gerald Ford
  5. George H.W. Bush
  6. James Garfield
  7. Franklin D. Roosevelt
  8. George Washington
  9. Abraham Lincoln
  10. All other presidents
Amazingly, six of the top ten U.S. Presidents have been left-handed and not only that, the top six!

You may remember recently when Barack Obama said electing John McCain would be the same as giving George W. Bush a third term, well John McCain countered that Obama seemed to be running for Jimmy Carter's second term. This was actually Obama and McCain telling their left-handed loyalists and co-conspirators that an unpopular president was going to be replaced by a better, more left-handed one.

Don't worry righties even if you can't be president there are plenty of catching and utility infield jobs for you.
