Everyone knows that Obama/Romney (pick one) has a secret plan to cancel all future elections and rule by fiat after he steals this one.

I predict Ohio will be a clusterfuck of voting irregularities, voter suppression, and voter intimidation.

Why is British television showing mass coverage of this election? There was a live 30 minute segment on BBC News24 the other day, just showing Obama waffling on about issues that are totally irrelevant to the UK. Does US television show footage of the local by-elections in Chipping Sodbury?
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

PBS might. Or BBC America.

Probably a top three Python skit for me (likely cos it appeals to me as a history nerd). In fact, I have used more than a few times the line, "If he opens his big mouth again, it's lampshade time!"

Seriously, one thing that's good about this election is that thanks to demographics and mortality rates, this is the last presidential election that the Republican appeal to angry white men—basically, Nixon's Southern Strategy or variations of the same, which have been part of every campaign since '68—can be a successful methodology. If it wants to be a viable national party, the GOP will have to abandon (or at least seriously moderate) its racism as campaign strategy and, perhaps, policy.
