Congratulations Mr. President Re-Elect

I read today that a Sri-Lankan businessman has already taken out a full page advert congratulating President Bush on his re-election. Some might say this is a little premature, although others of us might simply raise our eyes heavenwards and mutter 'well I'm sure Jeb's done that already anyway'.

In theory electoral wonks, a crowd of which I am happy to be a fully paid up member, still have a good 24 hours in which to happily bang on about the swing states, the Nader question, and whether Maryland will excercise it's prerogative of one of only two states able to split it's electoral votes. Despite all this statistical obessionary though, and despite the apparent closeness of the race, it's hard not to feel that it can only really go one way: that whatever the actual vote there will be some kind of electoral shenanigans or Supreme court stitch up to mean another four years of Bush. At least then he can't run for another term, and I like to think American isn't quite crazy enough to change that rule, but then of course we may come back to the small matter of his younger brother...


you are tiberius
Tiberius was the second emperor of Rome. His
mother wanted it more than he was. He had to
leave his wife to marry Julia, the daughter of
Augustus. He never really cared much for
politics. Later on in life, he moved to the
island of Capri, turning it into an island of
depravity and sex.

My inner child is ten years old today

My inner child is ten years old!

The adult world is pretty irrelevant to me. Whether
I'm off on my bicycle (or pony) exploring, lost
in a good book, or giggling with my best
friend, I live in a world apart, one full of
adventure and wonder and other stuff adults
don't understand.
