If you cannot conveniently tumble out of a balloon, or be swallowed up in an earthquake, or get stuck fast in a chimney, you will have to be contented with simply imagining some similar misadventure.

The Great American Math Test


Today's the day that Americans get to show their ability with math.

Q: Should government endlessly spend other people's money and bankrupt the country?

A) Democrat
B) Republican

The answer should safely be either A or B, but lately, A = KEEP SPENDING, and lately B = keep spending. So we're left with a choice of the lesser spending, which is still bankruptcy, just more slowly - unless the Republicans miraculously become champions of smaller government and fiscal restraint.

And that's the math test. We wake up to the results tomorrow.

It was satisfying, by the way, to take three of my adult children to the polls this morning. Another, Nick, is in Minnesota voting for Michelle Bachmann and Tom Emmer.
