Default Election Joke

My mom sent me this in an e-mail and I thought it was pretty good:

While walking down the street one day a US Senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies.His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter."Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a highofficial around these parts, you see, so we're not surewhat to do withyou."

"No problem, just let me in," says the man.

"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do ishaveyou spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where tospend eternity."

"Really, I've made up my mind. I want to bein heaven," says the senator.

"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down,down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of agreen golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front ofit are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.Everyone is very happy and in evening dress.They run to greet him, Shake his hand,and reminisce about the good timesthey had while getting Rich at the expense of thepeople. They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.


Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has agoodtime dancing and telling jokes.They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time togo.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises...The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St.Peter is waiting for him.

"Now it's time to visit heaven."

So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented soulsmoving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a goodtime and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peterreturns.

"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now chooseyour eternity."

The senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I wouldneverhave said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think Iwould be better off in hell."

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down tohell.Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren landcovered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags,picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls fromabove.

The devil comes over to him and puts his armaround his shoulder. "I don't understand," stammers the senator."Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course andclubhouse, and weate lobster andcaviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time.Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends lookmiserable.What happened?"

The devil looks at him, smiles and says,"Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted."
