    If Romney wins I will move to U.K.

    If that fucking Idol Worshiping maggot wins I’m leaving! The fucking liar will say anything to win!

    If Pecospete comes here I’m bogging off back to Austria.

    Coincidentally, I was studying in Austria in 2004 during the whole Bush/Kerry debacle. I swore that if Bush won a second term, I’d stay put and never go home. *

    This is a thing with us. We say this every four years, you may have noticed. JetBlue even decided to capitalize on it:

    Right! Or you’re a minority. Or a socialist. (Wait, they think all Europeans are socialists. You’re smegged.)

    Actually, just tell them you’re one of us 47% who back Obama because we’re all on welfare. Then you won’t need the horse; you can just “ride the government’s coat tails.”

    There’s no way Romney can win. No way. I won’t move out, but I will be incredibly embarrassed.

    I can not believe that 53 million morons voted for Romney! 56mil for Obama.
    I think there was massive cheating going on! I saw a electronic voting machine that if you pushed the Obama button, Romney lite up. So the fuckers tried to steal the election but failed. Rupert Murdouch your boy lost so FUCK OFF!

    Also, California had a chance to abolish the death penalty, and didn’t. :(

    Still, mostly good news. Two more states legalized gay marriage, and one even elected our first gay senator. And in Colorado and Washington state you can now legally smoke weed.

    Not quite “now,” sadly. It’s still illegal on the federal level. All this did was prove a majority support on the ground…it still has every chance to fail at upper levels.

    So pleased Obama won. He’s an incredibly eloquent, intelligent man. I’m not American, so I don’t know how successful he is as a president, but I think Mitt Romney would have been a disaster. And anyone that believes you can ‘pray the gay away’ deserves no place in politics, in my opinion.

    #203447
    HelloMabel

    >I’m not American, so I don’t know how successful he is as a president

    Here’s a partial list of what he has accomplished: reforming healthcare, getting us (mostly) out of Iraq, signing the Lilly Ledbetter Act for equal pay for women (as the very first official act after being sworn in!) and ending Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. All of that despite one of the houses of Congress being dead set against him. That makes him one of the great all time presidents in my book.

    #203449
    Ben Kirkham

    Yes, all of the above I can say I agree with. Especially ending Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. It’s like a reward for America after George W Bush (don’t get me started on him), a man who never ceased to amuse me purely for his inability to string a sentence together.

    Ben, I just hope we don’t go backwards as a nation in four years when Obama is no longer eligible to run. I hope we get someone equally competent to run for that ticket. But this country is odd. :-/

    I heard a rumour that Hilary Clinton was interested in running for President in four years, but it’s entirely too early to speculate.

    There will be new faces come 2016! Hilary Clinton will be senile by then! She probably will not even finish these last four years. It would be a sure win for the party of darkness if they ran her. Though I could see her as proxy for Bill.

    “Well, we know you think women are just proxies for their men anyway, Pete.”

    Do you have something intelligent to say about Hilary? or you just want to troll me? She will be 69 in 2016. She has done an abysmal job as secretary of state. Her last debacle that she own up to was the Libya ambush on sept 11 2013. She got the job as a reward for not running against Obama. She would be an great asset for the party of darkness

    Pete, you ignorant slut. ;-)

    You’re addressing the wrong thing, yet again. None of those mistakes you claim she made was as a proxy for Bill; she did them on her own, as well as any successes she had. I said nothing about whether she would be a good president or a good candidate on her own; the sole issue was proxyism.

    Now, I’m going to go watch some Red Dwarf. Without a man supervising or forcing me, no less.

    I think Hilary would be good, mainly because I can’t see her being so heavy on the drone bombings of civilians. Then again, I get all my US politics opinions from Gregg Proops.

    Romney lost because he was a Moomin. Obama won because he was a Sad Sack.

    I am such a massive Neil Innes fan that I actually know this show and song. I’m one of maybe three Americans who do.*

    I can play the theme from Innes Book of Records. Lovely tune. Entirely useless at a drunken sing-along.

    >It’s amazing how much there is of a Beatles sound in Innes’ work. The strings sound a little like the Mellotron from Strawberry Fields…

    I hear this too, though less so in his most recent work. There is a notable Beatles influence as early as his Bonzo days; just listen to “I Want to Be With You” from “Keynsham.”

    Also, I highly recommend his moving tribute to George Harrison, “Friends at the End” from “Works in Progress.” There’s no good video on YouTube, but the whole album is wonderful, so just buy it. You won’t regret it.

    Finally, there’s this petition to get “Innes Book of Records” back on tv.

    If it makes you feel better, Danny, I just assumed you were talking about the Beatlyness of his Rutles work influencing his non-Rutles stuff. :) Which it probably did in the case of the Raggy Dolls theme.
