The Pamphleteer

During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".

(From Dan, our correspondent in the Commonwealth of Taxachusetts.)

You've been elected and now sworn in as President and are spending your
first night -- as president -- in the White House. I know you've been
there before but you've waited so long to be the top dog. After sending
Willie out, you are alone:

The ghost of George Washington appears, and Hillary says, "How can I
best serve my country?"

Washington says, "Never tell a lie."

"Ouch!" Says Hillary, "I don't know about that."

The next night, the ghost of Thomas Jefferson appears... Hillary says,
"How can I best serve my country?"

Jefferson says, "Listen to the people."

"Ohhh! I really don't want to do that."

On the third night, the ghost of Abe Lincoln appears... Hillary says,
"How can I best serve my country?"

Lincoln says, "Go to the theater."
