I stopped by the Dodge dealership yesterday for a look at the new Ram 1500 pickup trucks. I took one out for a test drive because I wanted to get a sense of whether to buy now or wait till next year’s models come out.

The salesman, a nice black man wearing a I'M PROUD TO BE A DEMOCRAT lapel pin, sat in the passenger seat describing the truck and all its "wonderful" options. The seats were of particular interest. He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat.

Acting on the urge to yank his chain a bit, I mentioned that this must be a Republican truck.

Looking somewhat upset, he asked why I thought it was a Republican truck.

I explained that if it were a Democrat truck, the seats would blow smoke up your ass year-round.

I had to walk back to the dealership to get my car. Shit! ... those Dems can't take a joke.
