Sarah Palin For The White House? A No-Win That Is A Win-Win

Dan Majestic writes from Washington: So there you have it: a book is coming out next week claiming that Sarah Palin was a party animal in her younger years, doing dope and sleeping around outside wedlock. In Britain she would have had a boost to her popularity and probably would have made it to the very top of the political ladder with ease. But in America it might cause her a bit of a problem. Still, I hear Ms Palin is determined to enter the race for the White House, maybe even at the last possible moment allowed by the rules. Are you surprised? Well, then you probably don’t know how politics work in the big US of A, with President Barack Obama busy raising a staggering $1 billion that he intends to use to get re-elected for the second term. The irony of the situation is that Mr Obama... 

Would You Lend Joe Biden A Tenner? Of Course You Wouldn’t

Would You Lend Joe Biden A Tenner? Of Course You Wouldn’t

Dan majestic writes from Washington: Would you lend US Vice President Joe Biden a tennr, say for a week? Of course you wouldn’t. And not because you’d be afraid he’d steal it but because he’d probably lose it or invest it, along with other people’s tenners, into some dodgy scheme run by smooth-talking con-artists who’ll trick him with no problem. With all respect to the office of the US Vice President, Mr Biden just doesn’t look like a smart type. In fact, he doesn’t even look much like a politician. More like a man, who never really had a proper job in his life. Probably played truant at school a lot. And that’s a bit worrying if you think about it. Let me explain what I mean. Do you remember that line the Democrats used a lot during the last US presidential... 

Heard Any Good Jokes About Bankers? I Bet You Haven’t

Heard Any Good Jokes About Bankers? I Bet You Haven’t

Adam Lovejoy writes from London: Heard any good jokes about bankers lately? Good hard-hitting ones, I mean. I bet you haven’t, because there are none. Mainstream comedians don’t mock bankers, you see. In case they miss out on the advertising deals from the money men. Yes, in case you’ve missed it, comedian now advertise banks and big insurance companies, blowing their cred to shreds but being too greedy to resist. Anyway, bankers should have been slaughtered on the comedy circuit by now for f..king up the world economy and ripping off millions of people. But do you hear any worthwhile gags on the subject? No, you don’t. What the comedians come up on bankers is not even remotely funny. Wouldn’t dare to upset the money men. Would love to be money men themselves,...

A New Star Is Born? You Have Got To Be Kidding!

Martin McCauley writes: In case you’ve missed it, there was a rally in Washington DC last week. On Saturday, to be exact. On the anniversary of Martin Luther King famous ‘I have a dream…’ speech, to be even more precise. Half a million people turned up to listen to Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, amongst others. The main message was: let’s restore honour. The government has let us down, so it’s up to us, the people, to change America for the better. So what’s the big deal, you may ask. And, if you don’t live in US, you’ll be wondering who this Glenn Beck is? He’s a crafty fellow, a 46-year-old Mormon, who is the star presenter on Fox News. By the way, Fox News is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation and makes no attempt to be objective. It doesn’t like...

Pushing Up The Daisies: The Death Of Political Satire

R.F.Wilson writes: Have you heard about President Obama’s auntie, who was living in the US as an illegal immigrant for a while, even attending her nephew’s inauguration ceremony as a guest, before finally getting a permission to live in the US permanently? The funniest bit was when the White House came out with a statement saying that Mr Obama played no part in helping his auntie get off the hook. Is this funny or what? Is it not the stuff of comedy sketches and rip-roaring jokes? Of course it is. But did the American comedians have a field day with this? Nope, they didn’t. It was deemed to be too private an affair to poke fun at. Just like it is still considered bad taste to remind President Obama that he got his Nobel Peace Prize for doing absolutely nothing for peace, apart from getting...
