Strasburg, North Dakota- The political wife formerly known as the "Second Lady" is expected to announce she will join the 2004 ticket led by Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman, if the Democrats allow the conservative lawmaker to wear the label of "right-wing Democrat."

Lieberman says the right-wing label may help him defeat the current occupant of the White House in the 2004 New Hampshire Republican primary, just a year away. "Mr. Bush hasn't won a general election outside of Texas, "Lieberman announced. "It's time I extended his streak to the primaries."


Lieberman has spent the hours since his entry into the 2004 Democratic primary field listening for the supportive voice of his mentor, and America's longest sitting President-Elect, Al Gore. While the former vice president has removed himself from the race, Lieberman is now making overtures to Mrs. Gore. Tipper Gore and Lieberman share a passion for eradicating offensive music and videos, as well as a taste for moral outrage, Gefilte fish and moonlit walks through the Chattanooga Mountains. "I draw the line at lutefisk," Lieberman said.

With Al spending too much time at home lately, Tipper Gore began to consider other options. Mrs. Gore, expressed an active interest in applying for a spot on the Real Beverly Hillbillies reality show that is now in production. The show - which will featurean actual Appalachian family exposed to the realities of modern Beverly Hills -considered Tipper for the Ellie Mae Clampett role, but finally offered the former second lady a role as Grandma Clampett. Mrs. Gore politely declined.

Joined by their family values, Lieberman and Gore sat down together at a Strasburg, North Dakota coffee shop not far from the Lawrence Welk homestead. Each of them opined about the state of a world where Ozzie Osborne has been mainstreamed and Donnie and Marie are kept separate. "Not everything can be the way it is in my favorite Connecticut town, Stepford, "Lieberman admitted.

The couple had a frank talk regarding Lieberman's assent to a "hot tub" scene the candidate did with the former vice president on Saturday Night Live. "I had to do it to assure that Al would remember me if he ran for President again," Lieberman whispered across the table to Tipper. "I never felt so cheapened."


Tipper wiped the tears from Lieberman's eyes and assured the Senator that when he was President he would never have to throw himself on the casting couch ever again. "I dream of an America where we take the blinders off and drape the curtains from the halls of the Ashcroft Justice Department across all of America's video and television screens and unplug the electricity from its auditorium stages," Tipper noted.

The words radiated in Lieberman's eyes as he began to hallucinate in a rare North Dakota summer fog, imagining an airplane, an arriving police escort and Ingrid Bergman. "Here's looking at you kid," Lieberman recalled the words from memory.


"Of all the presidential campaigns in all the new democracies in this satanic world, we found each other in this one," Tipper picked up the spirit.

There was still a final decision left for the new team as they began their journey down the Primary trail.

"Perhaps we should make a decision on whose name will lead the ticket?" Lieberman asked Tipper.

"Okay, how about a round of rocks, paper, scissors?" Tipper decided.
