First President Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize, and then Ellen DeGeneres wins the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. How screwed up this world has become.

During the final presidential debate, I was very impressed with Mitt Romney’s impression of Barney Fife. But the only reason Barney’s shaky and nervous ways were funny was because we always knew good old steady Sheriff Taylor was there to clean things up after Barney screwed up.

We got a glimpse during the final debate of why Obama gets no cooperation from Congress. Leave the rude, condescending and disrespectful comments to Bill Maher, and try to act presidential.

Soon the elections will be over and then here in the great city of Kochville, in the state of Brownbackistan, in the wonderful country of Romryania, we will all be allowed to have the freedom they choose for us. Hooray?

Everyone should take yoga. That way, if Obama wins the election it won’t be so hard to bend over and kiss your butt goodbye.

Listening to Romney reminds me of that old TV show “I’ve Got a Secret.” The impostors lie and mislead to convince and sway the panelists into believing them. Only the real person tells the truth. It’s now time: Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?

Too much Mitt-flopping.

Either you like Obama or not. Why be undecided this close to the election?

Why was Romney so rude to the last two debate moderators?

If Obama has such a vision of the U.S., why are we sitting where we are after his four years? O-B-A-M-A – One Big Automatic Mistake, America, electing a Democrat.

How can Jesse Jackson Jr. run for office without ever being seen? I guess the dead folks who vote in Illinois can see him.

Californians are going to vote on whether to raise their taxes to 52 percent of what they make. This is what’s coming, folks – we bring home less and they spend more.

If fluoride is added to Wichita water, what will the optimum amount of water consumption be to ensure benefits for an average person? Couldn’t a person simply drink 2.2 to 3.75 times the optimum amount of water and get the same result at virtually no cost to the taxpayer? If not, why not?

Last Saturday, our QuikTrip gas was $3.45 per gallon. On the Kansas Turnpike, gas was $3.33. In Edmond, Okla., it was $3.12. Are we being ripped off?
