The Next Senator of West Virginia

West Virginians are so worked up over who is going to win the next presidential election, they seem to forget that we have our own elections going on right here in our own state.

In 2008, it is very likely that the next governor will be choosing someone to replace Senator Robert C. Byrd bein' as that the good senator is up there in age and all.

It seems likely that while the people on the left side of our state are joining the rest of the nation in bashing each other over the head because they like Hillary or Obama and the people on the right will be staying home because there's no candidate out there defending the rights of the fetus (until it's born), Joe Manchin will slide right back onto his governor's thrown.

Well, the First Church of the DC Comictician and Latter Day Citizens of the United Federation of Planets has the inside scoop on who Governor Manchin may be selecting to replace Byrd in the event of his untimely demise.

Here they are:

Sinestro, the Black Manta, Lex Luthor, and Gorilla Grodd. The sad thing is these guys are better than some the other choices- including the big one that might come immediately to the minds of West Virginians who happen to be paying attention.

You heard it here first, folks.

I'd vote for Guy Gardner.

Luthor already failed at the Presindent thing, I think that rules him out.

I bet Luthor could really bring home the pork projects, tho', in true Byrd fashion. Imagine the economic development opportunities in building evil hideouts!

True. And the Black Manta might create aquatic research centers along our rivers devoted to the destruction of Aquaman.

These projects, however, will cost all West Virginians their souls. It would probably be better for us to live as poor as we always have, live off prayers to Batman alone, and focus on the treasures that await us in the Hall of Justice if we can just remain righteous to the Word of the JLA. With Batgirl's guidance, every West Virginian will have the chance to become rich- in the afterlife.
