Top Ten Tuesdays: Why are we stepping down from power?

10) Platform dropped on the gallows.

9) Plan to pursue dream of being first dictator to win American Idol.

8) Always promised to resign when political killings became more work than fun.

7) Mistakenly thought citizens really loved us or instead of re-electing us in droves because we had them strung up by their purple fingers.

6) Something about not really listening to the will of the people.

5) Stupid hobbits destroyed our ring.

4) Cult of personality was found to be inflated by human growth hormone.

3) Couldn’t convince voting public that we were simply looking for a contact we had dropped into intern’s pants.

2) Lousy, meddling, Constitutionally mandated term limits (forthcoming).

1) Steely resolve of George W. Bush convinced us to step aside to let democracy blossom...just kidding, we’re taking the national treasury to Vegas.
