How to speak republican...
Just got this in my e-mail:

How to Speak Republican
10/24/11

Talking to a Republican can be frustrating. Often, it seems like they
are speaking an entirely different language -- and in many cases, they
are! For this reason, in the hopes of facilitating cross-party
dialogue and mutual understanding, I have compiled what I believe to
be the first comprehensive Republican-to-English dictionary, featuring
words commonly used by Republicans, and their English translations,
alphabetized for your convenience:

America (United States of): A country located in the N. Western
Hemisphere that is #1.

Birth Certificate: An official birth record required of all US

Presidents, regardless of race, since 2008.

rarely celebrated due to persecution by atheists.

States, the text of which must be interpreted strictly and amended

that don't matter.

which may be determined by the outcome.

Homosexuality: A membership-only lifestyle organization that
perpetuates itself through youth recruitment.

Hitler: A man to whom it would be inappropriate to compare President
Obama in spite of the many uncanny similarities.

in the year 0; beliefs include love, charity, enhanced interrogation,
privatized healthcare, elimination of the estate tax, and the right to
carry concealed semiautomatic weapons.

candidate for political office.
