Little Nicky has been out and about today making mischief where he can.
The Labour party conference dominates of course, especially the eagerly awaited buzzword count for Gordon Brown’s speech. Elsewhere David Milliban managed to suggest the Prime Minister has a very small penis.
Across the pond they have an election going on and the Democrats are starting to realise they picked another lemon to be their candidate. This is giving rise to much wailing, gnashing of teeth and accusations of racism. The fair minded among us fail to see why Obama should be so far above criticism that any questioning of his campaign is branded racist.
Even with the few points swing to Obama in poolls following last week’s economic meltdown he is not leading clearly enough to be sure of an electoral college majority when the Bradley effect and that world wide feature of elections, the lift in the conservative vote just before the election is taken into account. Factor in these and the vote is loaded between 6 and 10 percent in McCain’s favour.
With almost six weeks to go to the election its a bit early to write off the Democrats of course. Obama might be a loser but we are starting to hear rumours of a conspiracy aimed at dumping him in favour of Hillary Clinton. Watch this space. Meanwhile there is plenty of time for McCain’s health to fail. Oh no, that could mean President Palin.
While everybody else is getting seriously deluded about Obama’s chances I’ve been following the election via satirical blogs and on the all important sense of humour issue the Republicans win hands down.
If you want to know why chack out The Nose On Your Face and especially their Obamessiah series of video shorts starting with The Adulteress Other Obamessiah blogs, Teaching In The Temple and The Chosen One Walks On Water are linked from that page.
If you like closer to home humour have a look at these very British satires:
