CORRECT!!.......and so timely!

*While walking down the street one day a **US** senator is
tragically hit by a truck and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

'Welcome to heaven,' says St. Peter. 'Before you settle in, it seemsthere is a problem. We seldom see a high official around theseparts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you .'

'No problem, just let me in,' says the senator.

'Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do
is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can
choose where to spend eternity.'

'Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,' says the

'I'm sorry, but we have our rules.'

And with that, St.. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes
down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in themiddle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse andstanding in front of it are all his friends and other politicianswho had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him,
shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while
getting rich at the expense of the people.

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar
and champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who hasa good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a goodtime that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where
St.Peter is waiting for him.

'Now it's time to visit heaven.'

So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented
souls moving from cloud to cloud, greeting each other, playing the
harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it,
the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

'Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now
choose your eternity.'

The senator reflects for a minute, then answers: 'Well, I would
never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightfu l, but Ithink I would be better off in hell.'

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down,
down to hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a
barren land covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and
putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above...

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. 'I

don't understand,' stammers the senator. 'Yesterday I was here and
there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and
caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now
there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look
miserable. What happened?'

The devil looks at him, smiles and says.......

'Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted!'*
