    You bet, Mike. Go ahead an vote for the Sparkleponie-Green-Unicorn fusion ticket, safe in the assurance that the Democrats and I will keep the Republicans from doing anything hideous, like they did when you strategic geniuses boosted George W Bush into the White House. Every sensible person understands that none of the torture and invasions would have happened without you guys enabling the bad actors.
