Daddy Alex’s birthday, 30th October, and we ask: what do you want for your birthday, Daddy?
Oh, no more than for George W Bush to get his richly deserved comeuppance, he says wistfully…

Happy Birthday Daddy!
At the time of writing, I am looking into the future and seeing that now everybody except the official result is saying that the Democrats have won the last senate race, the one in VIRGINIA (the state named after the FAMOUS BRITISH QUEEN i.e. Madonna who is "Like a Virgin").
The Republicans have not conceded yet and there is some chance that they are going to demand a recount.
This is just like in 2000 when the Republicans said that calling for a recount in Florida was a sign of being a BAD LOSER.

The immediate result of course is that the Monkey in Chief has
If Mr Rumsfolly had been fired last week – when all four of the American Military newspapers called for it and his position really became untenable – then who would have been left to take the BLAME this week?
