Welcome to week 3 of our political joke primaries. Each week we pit a conservative joke against a liberal one and ask you, our readers, to vote for the best one. Last week we had a hell of a voter turnout. Six of you put your democratic ideals in high gear and cast your vote in the comments section. The results are as follows:
Left: 3, Right: 2, Voter error*: 1.
* Relax. This isn't Bush v. Gore, the voter couldn't see the tweets on their computer.
Congratulations to @FrankConniff! To recap, left and right are currently tied. And now for this week's fight…
IN THE LEFT CORNER

IN THE RIGHT CORNER
Democrats' slogan is "Forward". Next week they'll make that case with some former governors and a President elected 2 decades ago.

And now, the end is here and Romney did it his way (with perhaps a few regrets). The good news is it's not the end of the trail for hilarious tweets about this year's RNC…

As the RNC winds down and Tampa settles back into its normal, only moderately-packed-with-intolerably-wealthy-people routine, we took some farewell snapshots.

If comically oversized hats can't stimulate the economy, Mitt may need to come up with a plan B.

Jared Logan and Jordan Carlos talk with the governor of Guam to figure out what exactly he's doing at the RNC. Plus, can anybody in Tampa find it on a map?
