    So, I'm in the elevator with one of the janitors, going up to my office

    to do a little after-dinner paperwork, and he says--out of the blue--"So, the media's making a big stink about Sarah Palin spending $150,000 on clothes. Who cares? They don't say anything about what the guys spend." "What about John Edwards' $400 haircut?" I said. He thought about that for a second. "You're right," he said. "I forgot about that." Then he thought some more and said, "And then you got Obama outspending McCain, like, eight to one." "Average donation to Obama's about eighty bucks," I said. "Plus, McCain co-wrote the current campaign finance legislation. Now that he's losing he says it's unfair?" The guy's eyes kind of got big, but he didn't say anything. We got to my floor and the doors opened. "Have a nice night," I said. The janitor held the door for a second after I got out and looked like he was trying to think of a snappy comeback. "You, too," he said, finally. And the whole time I'm thinking, Dude, if I made what you make, if I cleaned freaking toilets for a living, I'd be TWICE as pissed at the Republicans as I already am, and I sure as hell wouldn't be trotting out their lame-ass talking points in elevators. You can't reach everybody, I guess.

    When did McCain ever say it was unfair? Hey Smuttzz, too bad DUmmy Underdeveloped doesn't allow dissent, I'd have a field day over there.

    Now, to grade this Bouncy:
    It starts with "So," that's good for a bong.
    It receives another half- bong for originality, since most Bouncies don't take place in an elevator.
    Another bong for the confrontation, though he wasn't a "Repuke" or "Fundy"
    Lastly, a bong for the DUmmy leaving the janitor silent, though unconverted.
    So, 3 1/2 bongs.

    Strange that with all these chest-puffing DUmmy encounters, I've never been confronted. Where is brave Sir Robin? Did he bravely run away?

    In the reality version of this encounter, the Janitor retorted, "Yeah, but Obama signed a piece of paper saying he would take public campaign financing. How are we supposed to believe anything he promises?"

    Of course, if the DUmmy had included this, it would have been and anti-bouncy.

    Did anyone notice...there were two "So"'s in that story. Whatever bongs are given have to be cut in half.
