11. Felt that the Democrats' donkey was a more honest logo than the elephant.

10. Robert Byrd is a very persuasive recruiter.

9. Thinks he now has a shot at Scarlet Johanssen.

8. Tired of having to pay income taxes every year.

7. Obama promised to lay hands on him and cure his Hodgkin's Disease.

6. Tired of the extremism in the Republican Party. Would rather caucus with such noted moderates as Patty Murray, Barbara Boxer, Russ Feingold, Gwen Moore & Barney Frank.

5. Hoping that Sean Penn will now introduce him to Hugo Chavez.

4. He was promised his own personal airport, like John Murtha.

3. He was promised Ted Kennedy’s scotch cache when Teddy kicks the bucket.

2. Less embarrassing to lose the Republican primary when you are a Democrat.

1. Wait... "switched"?
