While walking down the street one day a US senator
 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 expense of the people.
 They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar  and

Also present is the devil, which 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
 So, 24 hours pass with the head of state 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 returns.
 "Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose
your eternity."   The senator reflects for a minute, then the senator
"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 hell.

 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 all there is
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
