NOW THAT'S FUNNY
It's official. Governor Chris Christie might run for President in 2016. At first, we thought he might run for President in 2012. We thought this because we like to sit around and think about what people might do. Also, he campaigned for other candidates nationwide, so we thought he might be trying to raise his national profile.
He said all along he would not run in 2012, but we thought he might be kidding about that. We thought he might have been testing the waters. We thought he might have just liked to say no when he meant yes.
Sarah Palin might run for President in 2012, or in 2016, or she might do some more TV specials. Hilary Clinton might run for President in 2012. She might run in 2016. Bill Clinton might have another cheesey affair and ruin her chances. Or he might have another cheesey affair which might enhance her chances.
Donald Trump might run for President in 2012. He loves his country, and he hates what's happening to it. He never thought about it before, but people have been asking him about running, so he might consider it. Never mind that we're only asking him because we're asking pretty much everybody if they're running for President in 2012; the fact is he just might do it.
Mayor Bloomberg might run for President in 2012, that is, if he doesn't change the laws again and get himself another term as Mayor.
In 2012 I might take a vacation to Niagra Falls with my family. That is, if I didn't already go there in 2011. We might repaint the living room. I might have my appendix out, that is, if it becomes infected and bursts. Otherwise I'll just leave it alone.
In 2016 my husband and I might retire, that is, if we have a ton of money and are sick of working. My oldest son might be in college. He might go to a college nearby, or he might go to a college far away. We might be able to pay for it.
In 2012, the house next door to me that has been for sale since 2009 might finally sell. The new owner might be a politically minded person who runs for Congress. He or she might become very popular and work their way up the ladder, eventually running for President in 2020. I might go the inauguration.
I can't wait.
