Post Turtle!

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 *** put him up there in the first place.

Obama can do a better job than McCain. Unless you are already rich why would you want to vote for McCain?

I'd say that describes McBush better than Obama, but that's just my opinion. Anyway, I was relieved to read that you won't be voting for McBush either! Annie

I'd say that is quite a relief to you Annie! One less McCain vote means one more of Obama's will count! Of course most people who can't stomach McCain either don't realize a non-vote actually helps the one you dislike the worst but that's just the way I see it! As for a post turtle describing McCain; give me a break! Before his historical speech (written by someone else)at the DNC nobody had ever heard of Obama! Talk about someone who shouldn't even be there! At least McCain has some real Washington experience!

I like the colorful description, but that would have been better used for Bush, not Obama. Funny anyway though.

Revdauphinee, LMAO!!! This has to be one of the best descriptions of Obama there ever was! Was this in a local paper somewhere or did you come up with this one yourself? Also, don't you think the turtle HAS to be wondering, "just how in the HE11 am I going to get down?"
