I'd vote for the Exterminator based solely on his anti-French-cut green bean stance.

Ah -- but does he have a tough enough stance against the lima-bean peril??

Bleh! Lima beans, the equivalent of waterboarding, to a plate. Well, OK, and to the diner. At least skinny-cut beans taste good.

Once upon a time I considered voting for John McCain (in his last run). But there was something that seemed slightly dishonest about him. Now I'm pretty sure he'd put no less of a vise around our rights than any other Republican candidate.

Infidel, thanks for the political endorsement. I hope it won't affect this blog's tax-exempt status.

My top security advisers are looking carefully into vegetables of mass disgustion and we hope to have a report back to you on the lima bean situation before it deteriorates into succotash. In the meantime, we're seeking to further our agenda with a timely leek.

Thanks for including the deacon's piece in your list.

Exterminator, do you have any campaign buttons yet? I'd like one.
