And... The Winners:

2. Deathlok:

Senator Edwards receives his new shipment of Canned Applause just prior to the next debate.

3. Cowboy Blob:

Senator Edwards tried to open a Can of Whoop-Ass... he broke a fingernail and relented.

1) I am not playing race politics! Can I get a whoop-whoop on that from mah sistahs?

2) Barack Obama looking dignified, and Hillary looking like a monkey slinging poo. At least Hillary was showing her true colors for once.

3) Hillary: Ooooo, I just gambled and lost.

Is that a big sweat stain under Hillary's arm?

Whoa, timeout. I need to use the #%@*&#$ little girls room.

Next on David Letterman... stupid political tricks.

In response to the moderator's question "who smells that fart," Hillary Clinton got another chance to display her cat-like reflexes while Barack Obama was still trying to find the scent.

Hillary Clinton took the lead in CNN's new game show "It's the Candidates!" with her spot-on impression of Arnold Horshack.

Posted by: Nathan Hale at January 24, 2008 08:59 AM

Ooooo I didn't do it! says Hillary as Obama tries to act like nothing happened.

Hillary: "I've yadda-yadda'd sex . . . "

Hillary is practicing taking the oath of office. Notice she is raising her Left hand.

"OK, next open question. Who feels that Detoit's hip hop mayor Kwame Kilpatrick should be given a break for lying under oath about his extra-marital affair?"

Obama: "... I knew Arsenio Hall, he's a friend of mine, and Hillary you are no Aresenio Hall."

Posted by: rodney dill at January 24, 2008 06:51 PM

Of course it may actually be funnier with 'Detroit' instead of 'Detoit'

I'm a little teapot, short and stout....

Hillary: Monica? Of course I remember her... she was about yea tall, and her face was stuck in an expression like.... this.

Barack: *cough* Next question...

Posted by: Mr Michael at January 24, 2008 11:08 PM

Hillary: "Phew! Obama, did you just cut one?"

Obama: "Who me?"

Posted by: elliot at January 25, 2008 08:14 AM

Hillary (clearing the air): "Phew! Obama, did you just cut one?"

Candidates at Democratic debate respond to question from back of the room, "Who ordered the stripper?"

Posted by: KRW at January 28, 2008 02:05 PM

"While I agree with Senator Obama that we must inject racial civility into this debate and rise to the greater good of the party, I do want to raise a point of contention: My husband was "letting the dogs out" long before the Senator ever considered "letting the dogs out." Just as Monica and Jennifer Flowers.
