    If political jokes offend you so much, why do you keep electing them into public office?

That's why it bugs me when people say "We are the party of Lincoln" or BS like that, because political parties are defined by issues of the time, and if we go back to 100 years (or more) ago, America's issues are entirely different.
    I have to disagree a little here. The Republicans have always been the party of Big Business, including Lincoln. Things are not the same, but some elements of the two major parties endure.

    I sincerely doubt Canadian politicians are that much better. I watch CBC every now and then.

    Now maybe if you people decided to elect Red Green.

    Canadians are known for their sense of humor.

    No. There actually ARE more important issues.

    Right, SOME elements. Keep in mind that the Republican party hasn't always been the party of ultraconservative religion (see William Jennings Bryan), as it is now. Parties evolve.

    Of course, you raise an excellent point. I don't know about ALWAYS, but the Republican party has, for a long time, been the party of big business, just like the Democratic party has long been the party of the unions, and the middle class. Of course, Dem membership in that area has been dwindling recently (I recommend "What's the Matter with Kansas?" for more details on the new membership of the Republican party).

    I'm familiar with that book. Interesting stuff about the voting trends of the demographics, but it makes a crucial error in its initial assumption: that the Democratic Party somehow would be more representative of the interests of the rural poor and the Midwestern working working class than would the Republican Party. It's fairly obvious at this point in this history that neither party actually is. "The matter with Kansas" is that there are not many serious policy differences between the major parties, so culturally conservative heartland-types respond to a party that appeals (read: panders) to that base.
