Default Bush Campaign's new weapon

Republicans look to Amish for support

BIRD-IN-HAND, Pennsylvania (AP) -- The Amish live without electricity, cars, telephones, and usually, without voting. But they are being sought out this year as Republicans try to sign up every possible supporter in presidential battleground states.

Amish almost always side with the Republican Party when they do vote -- making them an attractive, if unlikely, voting bloc in the neck-and-neck campaign between President Bush and Democratic nominee John Kerry. A majority of the nation's Amish live in key swing states like Pennsylvania and Ohio.

That's it. Election over Bush wins. The Amish will deliver him a second term.

The Amish rock, we could learn some lessons from them. They havent done anything to be mocked about, too bad they dont vote in large numbers.

If all the eligible amish voters in penn/ohio voted, they probably could win the election for a candidate in those states as well. Theres quite a few of them. Plus anyways, who else could live in a city called "intercourse" and keep a straight face about it always.. (its a real city in penn.)

Amish Jokes


While driving in Pennsylvania, a family caught up to an Amish
carriage. The owner of the carriage obviously had a sense of humor,
because attached to the back of the carriage was a hand printed sign.
"Energy efficient vehicle. Runs on oats and grass.
"Caution: Do not step on exhaust.



What goes "Clippity-Clop, Clippity-Clop, Clippity-Clop,
Bang! Bang! Bang!"?
An Amish drive-by shooting.



What's an Amish woman's favourite sexual fantasy?
Two Mennonite.



Why don't the Amish water ski?
Because the horses would drown.



What would you call an Amish guy with his arm up a horse's ass?
A mechanic.



An Amish lady is trotting down the road in her horse and buggy
when she is pulled over by a cop.
"Ma'am, I'm not going to ticket you, but I do have to issue you
a warning. You have a broken reflector on your buggy."
"Oh, I'll let my husband know as soon as I get home."
"That's fine. Another thing, ma'am. I don't like the way that
one rein loops across the horse's back and around one of his balls.
I consider that animal abuse. That's cruelty to animals. Have your
husband take care of that right away!"
Later that day, the lady is home telling her husband about her
encounter with the cop.
"Well, dear, what exactly did he say?"
"He said the reflector is broken."
"I can fix that in two minutes. Anything else?"
"I'm not sure, something about the emergency brake..."



An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were amazed
by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver
walls that could move apart and back together again.
The boy asked his father, "What is this, Father?"
The father responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this
in my life, I don't know what it is."
While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed an old lady
in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button.
The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room.
The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of
lights with numbers on them above the walls light up. They continued
to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction. The walls
opened up again and a beautiful 24 year old woman stepped out.
The father said to his son, "Go get your Mother."

PRESS RELEASE: 10 December 1997

LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA: The Research for Amish Technological
Systems (RATS) has announced today an exciting new breakthrough.
Having worked feverishly to attempt to break into the internet
without using electricity, RATS has developed the steam-powered CPU.
"We heard that there were people out there making fun of our ways,"
said Jebediah Holtzenmeiermann, CEO of RATS. "Now we can connect
to this internet thing and find out what they are saying about us."
The CPU, roughly the size of a barn, uses coal fire and steam to
power it. It is connected to a monitor, which is ingeniously powered
by thousands of candles, each lighting a single pixel on the six-foot
high by eight-foot wide screen.
Holtzenmeiermann was asked how they intended to connect to the
internet, since access requires a phone line. He cursed under his
breath and declined further comment.



Amish Computer Scandal Shocks Community.

BIRD-IN-HAND, PENNSYLVANIA: In a recent sting operation, the Amish
Bureau of Internal Affairs seized literally hundreds of dollars of
unauthorized electronic equipment from the backwoods tool shed of
Jeremiah and Ezekiel Holzmann. The brothers were in the process of
downloading email when the raid took place. Most of the computer
equipment taken was apparently purchased at Pagan Electronic swap
meets, using fake identification and false mustaches to hide their
Amishness.
The chief investigator said that they were aware of rumors that the
Holzmann brothers were secretly supplying information about the Amish
to outsiders, who were then using the information for an Amish web
page.
The incident shocked the people who knew the Holzmanns. "They were
such good people," said Anna Zimmerman, the next door neighbor. "They
are leaders in our little church even. But now this" Her husband,
Jake, mentioned that the Holzmanns always seemed to be carrying boxes
wrapped in brown paper from their wagon to the tool shed. "Whenever I
would ask them what they had in the box, they always told me that it
was spare parts for their butter churn. It breaks down a lot."
The equipment consisted mainly of older model computers, such as old
TRS-80s and MacIntosh computers. The brothers claimed that since they
were using obsolete technology, they should not be punished.
"These are not real computers," claimed Ezekiel Holzmann. "We never
even touched a 486, let alone a Pentium. We are using 9600 baud
modems, and we powered them by hooking up a generator to the butter
churn."
Their story collapsed when investigators uncovered an invoice proving
that they had ordered a Pentium Pro 233mHz from an undisclosed
computer company in South Dakota. When confronted with the invoice,
Jeremiah Holzmann fell to his knees, crying for forgiveness.
"I told Ezekiel that it would escalate. It started with a desire to
get an electric alarm clock so we could get up on time to milk the
cows, but then we found a C64 at a barn sale. Soon, we kept wanting
more and more equipment, until finally we were reduced to this!"
They were sentenced to three years in an Amish Re-education Clinic,
where Jeremiah plans to write a book about his shameful addiction to
technology. When he mentioned the possibility of an interactive CD-ROM
of the book, he was then sentenced to six years.

------------

An Amish woman and her daughter were riding in an open buggy one cold, blustery January day. The daughter said to the mother, "My hands are freezing cold." The mother replied, "Put your hands between your legs. The body heat will warm them up." So the daughter did, and her hands warmed up. The next day, the daughter was riding in the buggy with her boyfriend. The boyfriend said, "My hands are freezing cold." The daughter said, "Put them between my legs, they'll warm up."

The next day, the boyfriend is driving in the buggy with the daughter. He said, "My nose is freezing cold." The daughter said, "Put it between my legs. It will warm up." He did, and his nose warmed up. The next day, the boyfriend is driving again with the daughter and he said, "My penis is frozen solid." The next day, the daughter is driving in the buggy with her mother, and she says to her mother, "Have you ever heard of a penis?" The slightly concerned mother says, "Sure, why do you ask?" The daughter says, "Well, they make one hell of a mess when they thaw out.
