Two for the price of one. That white faced guitarist still gives me the creeps after all these years. If he was a teacher, we wouldn't have any discipline problems in schools.
The Telegraph has a real-time map showing what's happening in the American elections. Apparently two of the 'TEA party' candidates have won already.
I haven't said anything about the TEA party because I don't understand what it is. It seems to be not a party, but a sub-party of the Republicans. Sort of like the Blur's 'New Labour' or the Cameroid's 'Blue Labour'. I remember hearing about one of their candidates who wanted to ban masturbation and who believed science had cross-bred humans and mice, and I remember thinking 'well, every tea party needs one Mad Hatter'. I also remember thinking 'I wouldn't vote for that crackpot'. It seems few people did.
It's not Libertarian. It talks of less tax and more freedom but also of more controls and more laws. It's some kind of hideous chimeric freak with Thatcher's face on one side of its head and a Blurry-Brown face on the other. I don't know what it is. I suppose the Americans do and have decided whether to vote for it or not. At least, the machines they delegate their votes to have decided. I wonder if they won in Boston?
(Update: No, they didn't. Massachusetts isn't in this voting round.)
Currently it looks like the Republicans are on the rise. Not that it will make one tiny scrap of difference, just as it didn't here. I suspect that America will wake to find the new truth of a very old saying in the morning.
'It doesn't matter who you vote for, the Government always gets in'.
