No wonder John McCain's concession speech Tuesday night was so gracious.

It turns out he's been in cahoots with Barack Obama for the last 10 years, and the pair have been devising a way to get either one of them into the White House as part of their plan to steal the precious Hope Diamond from the Smithsonian.

Well, at least according to the folks over at South Park, who, on last night's episode, showed Obama and McCain attending a postelection meeting with other members of the "greatest thief club in the world" to explain it all.

Hey, if in some weird way it helps the economy, we say, screw it—take all the diamonds you want.
