    > >"No problem, just let me in," says the lady.
    > >"Well, I'd like to but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is

    > >"Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven," says the head of
    > >state.
    > >"I'm sorry but we have our rules."
    > >And with that, St. Peter escorts her to the elevator and she goes down,
    > >down, down to Hell. The doors open and she finds herself in the middle

    > >In the distance is a club and standing in front of it are all her friends

    that,

    > >"Now it's time to visit Heaven."
    > >So 24 hours pass with the head of state joining a group of contented

    > >Now the doors of the elevator open and she is in the middle of a barren
    > >land covered with waste and garbage. She sees all her friends, dressed in

    > >The Devil comes over to her and lays his arm on her neck.
    > >"I don't understand," stammers the head of state. Yesterday I was here
    > >and there was a golf course and club and we ate lobster and caviar and

    and
    > >my friends look miserable.
    > >The Devil looks at her, smiles and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning.
    > >Today you voted for us!"
