Democrats can be funny

A man was in hospice, and made a stunning declaration: he wanted to change his party affiliation from Republican to Democrat. The family was stunned, as he'd been a staunch supporter of the Republicans for decades. They struggled with the decision, as their patriarch was obviously delusional.

The family came to the decision that they wouldn't change it, even at the request of a man on his deathbed. The man was insistent. It grieved the family that his time was so close, yet he wanted do something so bizarre.

The man's son was chosen as the spokesman, and explained to the man that they weren't going to change his party affiliation now. The man raised out of his bed with a passion and spirit they hadn't seen in some time. Then, with fire in his eyes, he said, "if I'm going to die, I want them to lose a voter, not us!"

The son pulled out his cell-phone and called the registrar.
