Well blow me down! It's not a joke! Or is it?
Can you say, "Senator Eagleton?"
This is going to like that Dallas episode where we found out that the previous season's death of Bobby was all a dream. Someone will pull back some shower curtains and Mitt Romney will be standing there.
I hate jokes like this almost as much as I hate prestidigitation; in both things we are expected to be entertained by being fooled into thinking that something impossible just happened.
