A SOPHISTICATED POLITICAL CONVERSATION WITH MY BETROTHED:
She: Do you like Howard Dean?
Me: No, of course not. I don't like any of them.
She: Well, which one do you dislike the least?
Me: I dunno. Maybe Al Sharpton.
She: You don't really think that.
Me: I guess I don't. But he pisses off the right people. And he makes me laugh.
She: Well, who do you think is the worst?
Me: Christ, I don't know. They're all pretty bad. Maybe Carol Mosely-Braun?
She: Oh, is she running?
Me: Yeah. She's an idiot and a crook.
She: I didn't know she was a crook.
Me: Well, I'm pretty sure she was in some sort of scandal. (pause) Then again, she was against the war. I suppose I should give her credit for that.
She: What about Joe Lieberman?
Me: Lieberman! Right. He's got to be the worst.
She: What about John Edwards?
Me: Oh, man. I forgot about Edwards. I hate that guy. Yeah, he's the worst.
She: Not Lieberman?
Me: OK, maybe Lieberman.
