    If you can do it while drinking beer and smoking it isn’t really a sport.

    I’m impressed by all three, but really impressed by the election one.

    More like depressed. If they got rid of the electoral vote, we would have a President actually chosen by the people. Not like the one we got in 2000.

    I live close to Mac Isle so I remember this story on Ripleys. It’s about the 4 time in 6 years they have repeated it. They just keep recycling the same trivia. Why I keep reading it is beyond me. Same with the This day in history sites. They just keep rehashing the same info.

    The electorial college is on its way out, as is the USA. Another $6 trillion in new debt will be added in the next 4 years, making the debt over $22 trillion by 2016. Nobody in their right mind will loan the USA more money, so, if past history is any guide, the current form of government will become a dictatorship.

    Actually 2000 was chosen by the people, 2008 and 2012 were chosen by the illegals and the non-working class.

    It’s not fair when a single state has nearly 11% of the entire nation’s electoral vote. Although I’m just as “blue” as that state, California has 55 of the 538 votes.

    actually, in 2008, Obama won the popular vote as well as electoral.

    With the electoral college it’s possible for a candidate to receive just 25% of the popular vote and win the presidency. He just needs 50% of the vote in the 10 biggest states and he can lose every vote in the other states.

    @roscoedog55

    You are wrong,Sir. Mackinac Island has been featured in the Ripley cartoon on 4 occasions: 8-27-36,
    7-6-79,
    10-13-98
    and Today! So it’s been 4 times SINCE1936.
