Kvatch Kalled It - The Lotto Election Is Here

Back in March, when I did a sendup describing the merging of Powerball with national elections, never in a million years did I think that someone would actually try it. Well, they are...in Arizona. If a new ballot initiative passes, one lucky voter will win $1M after the next general election.

Truth is once again, stranger than fiction, and I really need to call my lawyer. Where are my goddamned royalties for the idea?!


It is about damned time the United States of America rolled the dice! Why not? It is, afterall, clearly written in the Bill of Rights!
**Second Amendment – Right for the people to keep and bear arms, as well as to mantain a militia. ...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed. What does one have to do when playing a slot machine? Bear their arms and wrap their (finger) hand around the lever (trigger) and pull, right? See where I'm going with this?
The right to pull a (trigger) lever, it is explicitly stated in The Second Amendment!
You really should get a cut of this!

Actually, though, I think we should be choosing our future leaders through American Idol type competitions.
Well that's one way to get people to vote.
Kvatch - You should start copyrighting your ideas. You're definitely losing lots of $$ from just giving away these ideas. :)
TPM, I pull the handle but all I keep coming up with is three lemons: Bush, McCain, Frist. Go figure.

Ms Yenta, Elsa...it's all I'm saying. I ain't never gonna be able to supplement those vouchers to get my tadpoles in Bob Jones U without a cut of the profits.

And to my Anonymous Faux News troller...they make you work from home at 11:00 at night? Man your life must suck!
Okay, I've got a system for these things.
Every Australian is born playing slots, only we call them poker machines or just pokies.
Obviously I can't vote there so I can't use the system. But I would consider taking bids!
You may be on to something here!
