A Politician's  Afterlife...

While walking  down the street one day a US senator(Who also happened to be a lawyer) 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 seems there
is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these  parts, you see, so
we're not sure what to do with you."

"No  problem, just let me in," says the man.

"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 senator.

"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 the middle of a
green  golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of
it  are all his friends and other politicians who 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

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

Everyone  gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the  elevator rises...

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, playing the harp and singing.  They have a good
time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by  and St.. Peter

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

The senator reflects  for a minute, then he answers:  "Well, I would never
have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would
be better off in hell."

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

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."
