Washington, DC - In the tradition of good sportsmanship, no matter how hard it may be for the losing candidates, it has become almost mandatory that the losing party phone the winning side, to concede the election results, usually by the time the final tallies are in.
Of coarse, America always hears about the other major candidate, this time Mitt Romney, having called over to the victor, Obama, to say "Uncle."
Other than the Romney call though, we never hear about the third party candidates concession calls, but they do indeed take place. In fact, every single person that runs for the Presidency, makes the same heart-wrenching call.
Romney's call, we know, came a little later than usual because Florida couldn't remember what number came after 13, 445, 678. And because Romney is a giant #%*&% !!
Others, like Gary Johnston of the Libertarian Party, got the call over quickly and went to bed.
The President also received calls from Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party, Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party and even Rosanne Barr, of her own Green Tea Bag Party (Yuk!) made the call. Rosanne took it upon herself to reenact her now infamous rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner", butchering the song into the phone at Obama until he was holding the phone at arm's length. (Double Yuk.)
But Obama's trouble came when he couldn't remember Green Party nominee, Jill Stein's name, wanting for some unknown reason to keep adding a "berg" to the end of it.
"Thank you, Mrs. Steinberg" He kept saying to me during the call." Recounted Mrs. Stein. "You gave it a heck of an effort Mrs. Steinberg." He'd say. "The country needs people like you, Mrs. Steinberg." He had continued.
I knew I wasn't exactly in the running for the job, but you'd think the guy would at least know my name!" He also thought my party was called the Green Party because I supported free Marijuana for everyone? Which he endorsed whole-heartedly, mind you."
Like Mr. Johnston of the Libertarian Party, Mrs. Stein was tired and just wanted to go to bed, so she let the President of the hook and said good night.
"Ok, good night, Mrs. Steinwitz." The President finally said to me at the end of our phone call."
"Whatever!" Huffed the exhausted leader of weed smokers everywhere, regretting her decision to vote for the President earlier that day.
"But all's fair in love and politics." Is Jill Stein's philosophical standpoint about the subject. "In all honesty, it took a good six months for me to stop calling him Obama Barack, when he was first nominated.
