I'm voting for Obama, but this is a cute joke

    ...and actually, some of it I agree with.

    While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be our President.

    The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'post turtle'.'

    Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was. The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a "post turtle".

    The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain. 'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb ass put him up there to begin with.'

    "One day after Mrs. Clinton blamed the sex allegations against her husband on a "vast right-wing conspiracy" to undo the results of two elections, the first lady cited a saying often quoted by her husband."

    "One of my husband's favorite old Southern sayings... is that if you find a turtle on a fence post, it didn't get there by accident," Mrs. Clinton said."

    "And I just look at the landscape around here and I see lots of big old turtles sitting on lots of fenceposts. I think we need to find out how those old turtles got on those fenceposts," she added."

    I wasn't aware of that quote.  Cool.  But she was right.
