Political Balloons! (300th Post!)

This is my 300th post, so I will make it about nothing of consequence.

At the county fair this year, my kids went around collecting political helium balloons. The Republicans had red and blue balloons. The Democrats had yellow balloons. I wonder if they made that color choice consciously, or if perhaps the yellow balloons were just cheaper (there are hardly any Democrats around here so they probably are short of funds).

Then we took a Republican balloon and a Democrat balloon and placed them side by side. The Democrat balloon deflated first. So we predict that George W. Bush will win the election based on the augury of the balloons.
