We could have won if ONLY we had used this tactic during the 2004 election

A RAT STORY

A tourist walks into a Magic curio shop in San Francisco. Looking around at the
exotica, he noticed a very lifelike, life-sized bronze statue of a rat. It had
no price tag, but it was so striking he decided he must have it.

He took it to the counter. "How much for the bronze rat?"

"Twelve dollars for the rat, one hundred dollars for the story," the owner
said, "but I have to warn you, it has a curse."

The tourist gave the shop owner twelve dollars. "I'll take the rat. You can
keep the story."

As he walked down the street carrying the rat, he soon noticed that a few
real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and began following him. This
was disconcerting, so he began walking faster. But within a couple of blocks,
the herd of rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began squealing.
He began to trot toward the Bay, but looking back he saw that the rats now
numbered in the millions, were squealing ever louder, and coming toward him
faster and faster. Now scared, he broke into a run, then a full Olympic sprint to
the edge of the Bay where he threw the bronze rat as far out as he could
muster.

Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after the bronze rat,
and they all drowned.


The man walked back to the curio shop.


"Aha!" said the owner. "You have come back for the story."


"No," said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze Republican."

1. Hilarious, but you need to punch up the first paragraph a bit...

You're not mentioning anything about the mysterious shop or the fact that the shop owner tries to warn you of the 'curse' that's on the bronze...

3. Something to add.
"Sorry, no brass Republicans, but I DO have a brass Rush Limbaugh"
"But I must warn you, this one has a different curse"...

I'll leave it up to someone else to finish it :)
