17. Unemployed Geologist In Dallas Supporting Obama

McCain is running for President, but he is not a senator from Arizona, he is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. He happens to be campaigning in Dallas when it comes out in the news that he had recently arrested for drunk driving in Pennsylvania. He comes to a group of about 20 of us to explain this. The talk was the usual blather we hear when a public figure does something bad. During his talk, I keep interrupting to make awful – but original! – jokes.

After the speech, everyone else left the room, and John and I sat around eating peanuts and having a friendly chat about all the self-righteous nonsense we'd be hearing in the news about the incident.
