An acceptable joke?

This came to me from a friend in India:

Today's Joke, fit for an 11 year old, comes from an Iranian friend of mine who wishes to remain anonymous.

A US Republican Senator gets on a plane and finds himself seated next to an Iranian lady.

He sees her Iranian passport and strikes up a conversation.

"So tell me," he says, "why does a country like Iran - with so much oil and gas - need a nuclear programme?"

The Iranian lady looks at him, a little puzzled.

"That's a very interesting question," she says, "but let me ask you something first.

A horse, a cow and a deer all eat the same stuff...grass.

Yet the deer excretes little pellets, the cow turns out a flat patty and the horse produces muffins of dried poop.

Why do you suppose that is?

The American guy is dumbfounded.

Finally, he replies: "I haven't the slightest idea."

"Oh, I see," says the Iranian, "so how is it you feel qualified to discuss Iran's nuclear programme when you don't know s**t?"

I really had to laugh at this one!

Steve's "love affair" with Chaffee

This was my entry on The Washington Note

It seems almost as if Steve is having a "love affair" with Lincoln Chaffee.

Chaffee only voted against the Republican Whip when he saw that his vote would make no difference to the outcome. He has been part of destroying the US Constitution!

And his stance on John Bolton shows that he has NO backbone - shifting sands.

What was that adjective about John Kerry? :-)
