Arizona Capitol Times

Barry’s Note: I saw this poll on the Arizona Capitol Times’ page, and I noticed that it only had Republican-Democrats as options. They e-mailed me a subscription page. Here’s my reply… Dear AZ Cap Times Publisher; I almost subscribed, but I noticed that ONLY the Republican-Democrat candidates for Governor were options on your poll–not even so much as an “other”.

“Has the jury reached a verdict?”

“Your Honor, the jury votes to acquit the Defendant.” That’s when the Judge erupted into a barrage of threatening language and terms of ridicule reminiscent of a spoiled child’s tantrum. “My instructions were explicit.
