Having reportedly written “Republicans do it better” on her MySpace page as a yoof, perhaps the producers of Saturday Night Live thought it would be a good idea to sit Taylor Swift next to Tea Party crackpot Sarah Palin for their 40th anniversary special. Unfortunately, they forgot about the bits where she called the US first lady a “role model”, dated a […]
Fox Nation — the website operated by Fox News for people that don’t think the channel is right wing enough — are currently reporting on the selfie taken at the Nelson Mandela memorial by Barack Obama, David Cameron and “an unidentified official” — or as the rest of the world likes to call her, the prime minister of Denmark, […]
If Gordon Brown had a catchphrase it would be the wooden utterance — often delivered for the benefit of party activists or public sector workers — thanking them “for all that they do”. Signing a “G8 quilt” made by primary school children alongside Barack Obama today, Cameron seems to have tapped his predecessor for inspiration. […]
Apparently tiring of the endless mad reasons that Saint Romney lost to evil Obama last week, the tin-foil hat brigade over at Fox News have found a new conspiracy to latch onto: the General Petraeus sex scandal.

Mitt Romney’s prospects in the US elections have taken another blow, with president Obama pulling away in polling.

With Obama’s ambitions for bipartisanship faltering during the course of his first term, perhaps he is now looking to practice this further afield? The US president seems to have synthesised Ed Miliband’s One Nation theme with David Cameron’s “in this together” refrain in recent campaign trail speeches: President Obama: “We’re all in this together. We […]
Obama has an almost nine in ten chance of winning the US election. Nate Silver, whose Five Thirty Eight polling blog is published by the New York Times, predicted Obama an 86.3% chance of winning today – up 11.7% since the end of October. Though the figures from Silver’s model of the electoral college differ […]
