Thanks for Visiting
All of us on the Chain Gang would like to thank you for stopping by. The weekend lies ahead, and
we're sure you have had about enough of this election -- or maybe we have. We'd like to wish you
a restful time and urge you to have some fun. We'll be checking in over the weekend, but we know
that most of you don't. Just leave a comment here (even if it's just your initials and a grunt) and let everyone else know you stopped by . . .
We'll be sure to predict a Bush Victory for you on Monday -- isn't it obvious at this point? Get
rested up so you can wander around your neighborhood and find the polling place that will let you
vote. Bring some friends with you. Voting -- what a concept?
But, if you just can't stand a day without dwelling on the big election -- Dick
Morris (Source Archive) is feeling
much better about President Bush's campaign and we really like reading about what dunderheads
the Democrats remain.

Time to Lose
John Braithwaite, in his book
Crime, Shame and Reintegration reports that "disintegrative shaming (i.e., shunning) does
indeed create a class of outcasts. Offenders are prevented from bonding back into society, and
can only become more entrenched in crime as a result of being branded a criminal."
This is not good news for Sen. John Kerry as his fellow Democrats seeking the gift of a U.S. Senate seat
shunning (Source Archive) the good Senator.
Why? Wouldn't it help to be swept into the gold mine that a U.S. Senate seat represents on the coat-tails
of an overwhelming presidential victory? Evidently, that is not what these opportunity seeking politicians
see as a viable result of cozing up to the Democrat nominee.
They must know something unknown to the rest of Sen. Kerry's apologists.

The Masses Are Willing to Believe Anything
Warning: the following link is extremely delusional. Not for what it hopes for -- a Sen. John Kerry/Sen.
John Edwards victory -- but for what it presents as the results of such a victory.
The folks at Needlenose.com have put together their highest hopes in a little flash animation that takes about
90 seconds to view. Just like a letter to Santa Clause.

Democracy -- Meaning Rule by Apes
For those following the Electoral Vote Predictor. As of 10/24/2004,
it is Kerry 257 | Bush 254
a shift to nobody's favor from 10/14/2004 where it was Bush 284 | Kerry 228. Is anyone else getting
totally sick of this discussion. I mean, DRUDGE actually has on
his page today the following headlines:
Bush: Kerry Suffers 'Election Amnesia'...
Kerry: Bush Allowed Bin Laden to Escape...
Enough already -- let's just vote.
Some of you have expressed dismay over the title of these entries -- "How can you denigrate democracy by
calling it 'Rule by Apes?'" But, we have a few questions for those who believe in evolution -- like,
"If we have indeed descended from Apes, how can 'democracy' be anything but rule by Apes?" Or, "If we have
indeed descended from Apes, how can there not be the possibility -- nay, probability -- that there will
be yet another species, that may appear quite suddenly, that will be superior to what we now call, 'Men?'"
Or, and this can never be touched upon, but here-goes anyway, "If we have indeed descended from Apes, how
is it not possible -- nay, probable -- that there are some of what we call, 'Men,' that are superior (i.e.,
further evolved) than others that we still insist on calling, 'Men?'"
You see, this entire experimental form of governance is set upon the ridiculous notion that 'All Men
are Created Equal.' As some report, this has been scientifically proven to be patently false. We
have not been created -- equal, or otherwise. So, how is it that all "men" should receive equal rights
under the law or equal standing in the voting booth? When superiority of some "men" over other "men"
is as natural as losing your tail and developing an opposable thumb. All we are doing is marking time
until the appearance of the Uber-mensch -- an idea introduced at the end of the 19th century that
gained popularity in Germany in the late 30's to great shouts of, "Oh, my God." Or was it, "Oh, my
random, meaningless universe?"
Note: The term "men" appears above in quotations not to emphasize sex, but rather species and
should more appropriately and scientifically and rationally and objectively be replaced with the word, "Apes."
But, we don't let "Apes" vote, so, "men" it is. For some reason. Shammadamma.
P.S. -- we are also looking for a pro-abortion writer to defend the constitutionally mandated fact that
unborn children are not endowed with a few inalienable (that is English for incapable of being alienated,
surrendered, or transferred) rights, like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We are not sure if
we have ever read the treatise that established that these particular little apes do not have the right to
life, or the right to liberty, or the right to pursue happiness, but we're sure it must have been written
and reviewed by the learned Justices of the Supreme Court and we would like to have it all spelled out for
us here at InstaPunk. Send inquiries to NoRightToLife@InstaPunk.com.
