Will get examined? It has been all over the press and has already been 'examined' in the finest detail, as has anything in Salmond's past that might provide a slur. In fact I think the only bit of 'dirt' that hasn't been created about him yet is the FACT(!) that he is Kenyan.


To be honest if they can't make the mud stick when he's caked in it by Trumpy it'll never stick.

Was watching last night, I thought American Dad was a ###### take? The Romney HQ was 99.9% white and Romney himself is Stan Smith....

Some Republicans were recognising that after the result had been announced - that their support base had become, almost exclusively, white at the same time as the wider American electorate was becoming more diverse. Blacks and Hispanics in particular were voting in greater numbers, and were coming out, largely, for the Democrats. The conclusion was that they had to widen their appeal.

Is it a good thing that someone that believes in the second coming of Christ and that, being one of the righteous, they will live in paradise could potentially have his finger on the big red button? (Assuming it is a big red button, I would be disappointed if it wasn't big and red).


Much more scary is the belief that the second coming will only happen once Israel occupies it traditional biblical area.

(There are a number of extreme rabbis that will go to any lengths to PREVENT this happening)

Many Americans want the biblical prophesy to come true. Not sure where the Mormons stand on this as that can be proved to be all made up.

Hyphenated Americans (Irish-Americans, Mexican-Americans etc) tend to vote Democrat. Proper Americans vote Republican. :D

WHat about WASP-Americans? :)

And thinking about proper Americans, what way do native Americans tend to vote?

Yes. It has supposed to have been coming for quite a while but things seem to be changing.

Civil ceremonies are still called weddings aren't they? Hope so as we're having a civil ceremony next year.

They always were, change is inevitable but I think commentators tend to overlook the fact that Obama comes from a WASP background on his mother's side.

Good question. I don't know. I don't think that (sadly) they are a significant percentage of any state and hence don't tend to appear in racial break-downs.

Given that very many are dirt poor (except those whose tribe decided to build a casino who are fantastically rich) I would imagine Democrat.
