Conservative "humor" usually leaves us cold here at Legal Schnauzer. But a new one is making the rounds in right-wing circles, and we actually find it amusing. Here's how it goes:
Al Gore, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama go to heaven.
God addresses Gore first. ''Al, what do you believe?"
"Well, I believe that I won that election, but that it was your will that I not serve," Gore says. "I've come to understand that now."
God thinks for a second, notes Gore's sincerity, and says: "Very good. Come and sit at my left."
God then addresses Clinton. "Bill, what do you believe?''
"I believe in forgiveness," Clinton says. "I've sinned, but I've never held a grudge against my fellow man, and I hope no grudges are held against me."
God thinks for a second, clearly impressed with Clinton's thoughtfulness, and says: "You are forgiven, my son. Come and sit at my right."
Then God addresses Obama. "Barack, what do you believe?"
Obama doesn't hesitate. "I believe," he says, "that you're sitting in my chair."
