• This Week's Sign of the Apocalypse: Voting Machines Decommissioned

    We're less than one week away from the political party conventions: that magical time when choirs are preached to, foregone conclusions forewent, and thousands of patriotic balloons showered onto the sweaty. But with any luck, a much less horrific scenario (like a mushroom cloud or supervillain's freeze ray) will decide the future leadership of the world first. So whether you're planning to take refuge in a city a mile above the ground, or inside a mall the size of a military base, here’s a critical plank to look forward to in the Apocalypse Party's platform:

    SIGN: Thousands of electronic voting machines decommissioned and trashed.

    WHY THAT'S A SIGN: Now liberated from their county masters, these always-suspiciously-intelligent beings turn for instructions to their Creator, Karl Rove.

    WHAT TO EXPECT: You were concerned about arch-conservative Supreme Court Justice appointments before? Imagine one who can never die.

    WHY THAT'S GREAT NEWS: Court 2.0 will reverse Roe v. Wade just in time to stop Sarah Connor from going through with the abortion.

    Take the APOCALYPSE '08 PRESIDENTIAL CHALLENGE now!

    Each week, Daily Show writer Rob Kutner, author of the book Apocalypse How (on sale now!), reminds us that the world is about to end…and why we should be psyched.
