In a last minute switch, both President Bush and Senator Kerry were replaced with inflatable bop'em clowns for the third, and final of the Presidential debates. When asked why the switch was made, a spokeswoman for the Kerry campaign said, "The senator felt exhausted from all of his travel, his various campaign stops all across the country, and from preparing for the last two debates. We realize this final debate is very important, so we've decided to give (president) Bush a chance."
When asked why they replaced their candidate with an inflatable clown, a spokesman for the Republican Party gave a similar response. "We also realize the third debate is very important," he said, "and we'd like to give Bush a chance as well."
