    Here is a list of questions that should be submitted to every candidate for public office.

    1 Which section of the paper do you read first ? (If they answer the Editorial or Metro section, thank them for their time and move them on to the next house)
    2 Can the Government solve most of our problems ? (If they answer yes, thank them for their time and move them on to the next house)
    3 Have you ever attended the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs ? (If yes, thank them for their time and move them on to the next house)
    4 In thirty words or less, why are you running ?
    5 Do you believe in limiting the growth of Government to the Personal Income Index ?
    6 If you could have dinner with anyone who has ever lived, who would it be ? (Jesus and Ghandi are excluded)
    7 What is the difference between Macro and Micro Economics ?
    8 Other than Karl Marx, Name one economist.
    9 If you have held a public office, how long have you served, and name your five best accomplishments.
    10 In the early 1930s, when Winston Churchill warned Europe about Hitler and the German war machine, people thought that he was crazy. Would you let people think that you were crazy if you believe that you're right ?
    11 Would you take a pay-cut to solve our budget problems ?
    12 Have you ever sued anyone ?
    13 Would you ever euphumize Unemployment Compensation into "reemployment insurance" ?
    14 Will you limit yourself to less than four terms in office, and be willing to sign a public proclamation saying so ?
    15 Please quote one line from the movie Caddyshack. (If they cannot, the movie Stripes is an acceptable alternative.)
