The perfect genie

Mike Malloy, Glenn Beck and Tim Russert are all stranded on a desert island. Walking along the beach one day, they find a magic lamp with a genie inside. They rub the lamp together and release the genie, who promptly agrees to grant each of them one wish.

Mike Malloy pipes up and says, “For my wish, I’d like all right-wing extremist partisan fanatics sent to Hell.”

The genie concentrates for a moment, Malloy disappears, and the genie says, “It is done.”

Glenn Beck jumps up and cries, “For my wish, I’d like all the liberal progressive Socialist, America-haters sent to Hell.”

The genie concentrates again, Beck disappears, and the genie says, “It is done.”

The genie looks at Tim Russert and says, “And what is your deepest desire?”

Tim Russert thinks for a moment, and says, “So let me see if I understand this correctly. All the right-wing lunatics are gone?”

“That is correct,” said the genie.

“And all the left-wing whackos are gone?”

“That is also correct,” the genie said. “Now what is your wish?”

“Well, if all the idiot loudmouths on both sides are gone,” Russert said with a contented smile, “I’ll just have a Coke.”
