Dave Barry on the Election

Dave Barry: And the winner is . . . the man with the martini

In analyzing the results of Tuesday's historic election, the question we must ask ourselves, first and foremost, is: what the heck were the results of Tuesday's historic election?

I personally don't know. The Miami Herald made me send in this analysis before the election was actually over, so that it could be printed in a timely manner. This is part of the newspaper industry's crafty plan to defeat this ''Internet'' thing that has the youngsters so excited.

Now go read the rest!

In a similar but sillier vein, The campaign as a RPG campaign:

GM: OK, the bugbear attacks you. What do you do?

OBAMA: I send one of my 672 henchmen after it.

MCCAIN: OK, seriously. Why does he have so many henchmen? I'm a level 72 ranger and he's only a level 8 paladin.

OBAMA: Well, if you'd bought the Grassroots Organizing and Oratory/Colgate Smile proficiencies you could min max it so that you...

MCCAIN: Why is he even IN this campaign? I thought this was supposed to be a high level party.

So, if you're into RPGs, go read the rest. If you don't go RPGs, you won't get it.

And what if the election had taken place in World of Warcraft?

No surprise that people with nothing better to do with their time than play video games online all day went for Obama. McCain supporters have jobs.
