Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Well, I see the political campaign is upon us again. the different leaders are lining up for the fray and will soon--
/
Mr. Bunion: -be dishing out and smearing on the salve, while they wing the hammer upon each other. I'll go and listen once again to their spiels
/
Republican Politician: You poor hard working wretches beef about your conditions then run to the pools (sic) and vote the Democratic ticket. Get rid of Dull Care! Vote the straight Republican ticket!
/
Man: Here! Friend! Go and listen to Hon. Fawnskin at the Democratic meeting.
/
Democratic Politician: The Republican Party stands today for all that is rotten in our governmental affairs. If you want happiness, comfort, wealth, you must vote the straight Democratic ticket.
/
Man #2: Don't listen to those two old grafting parties. Go over there and listen to our independent candidate--
/
Independent Politician: If you would shake off that dull, tired feeling, shake off those two old parasites of society the Democratic and Republican parties. Free yourselves of Dull Care!
/
Mr. Bunion: Now, here's a fellow that had the goods exposed to view. He is a good speaker and tells the truth indeed he does!
Man #3: Lemons! Ah, nice fresh lemons ah beeg ones!
