Because I have dual Canadian/American citizenship - or, as I like to tell people, I’m bi - I am watching both upcoming elections closely.

I was talking with a co-worker today via IM about the US Presidential election and we were trading links to various blogs and campaign ads. One of the links he sent me was for a BBC essay titled “Why rednecks may rule the world” and after reading it I suggested to him that a McCain/Palin victory might mean seeing a limo up on blocks in front of the White House.

My co-worker replied that it would likely be a Hummer limo, and I then mentioned that it would probably have a gun rack.

He countered by suggesting a dead moose should be strapped to the hood of the limo…and that’s when my twisted sense of humour kicked in.

DISCLAIMER: I AM IN NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM WISHING ANY HARM TO BEFALL JOHN MCCAIN OR ANY OTHER POLITICIAN.

Imagine, if you will, the scenario that might play out if, Heaven forbid, President McCain were to die in office.

Visualize the funeral procession carrying his body to where it will lie in state…but instead of a coffin being transported by a horse-drawn carriage, he’s strapped to the fender of a Hummer limo driven by Sarah Palin.

With, of course, a gun rack in the rear window.

Will the Honour Guard be wearing blaze orange as they fire their 21-shotgun salute? Are we talking double barrels here and, if so, are they side-by-side or over/under?
