    The bible belt could use some sort of COMEUPPANCE. A NEGRO President would surely do the trick.

    I am ENGLISH and jewish so am neither an American or a bible basher from the mid west or deep south :)

    I do however take a strong interest in what is happening the other side of the pond as we are essentially America's bitch and the 51st State thanks to Blair and Brown and his cronies so whoever gets in is going to affect us too

    I called it for Bush in 2004 when CNN were calling it for Kerry, I was sat at home with friends and said that I had faith in the American people and sure enough I was right, I was one of the few people calling it for Bush in 2000 when everyone I know was saying Gore was a shoe in for the presidency

    Believe me, McCain will win

    I mean honestly

    People here are just too ban happy, no wonder nobody's left to vote in the rate

    Just because he's got a shouty and annoying presense doesn't mean we should ban. We let Suomi stay, after all

    No it was not racist

    It was a tongue in cheek way of saying that there will not be a black president inaugriated in January, no racial overtones

    It is a PISSTAKE to go with the name because the name Obama sounds similar to Osama and I believe that Obama is hiding his muslim roots

    you still sound like a deluded far right Christian loon though

    and they're the sort of people the rest of Britain laugh at

    So don't be too offended if the rest of moopy laughs at you

    Hello Barack, do you like Kylie?

    Also do you like Trevor McDonald? My Grandad is a racist old cunt, but he likes him. I wish to know how extreme you are.

    Of course it's fucking racist, you were implying that the only jobs that any black people will be doing in the White House will be low paid menial serving jobs.

    Can't stand Kylie

    Far more of a Led Zepp, Deep Purple, Skynyrd, 38 Special, Rainbow, Sabbath fan than someone like Kylie

    I admire many black people, my fave cricketer of all time is the BLACK Sir Viv Richards, I support Spurs where 7 of the first team are black, I admire several black sportsmen. I am not bothered by Obama's skin colour, if he was white as driven snow I would say his policies were dangerous and his lack of experience disasterous

    It was a tongue in cheek way of saying that there will not be any in senior positions such as President, VP, chief of staff, press secretary, NSA advisors and so on, Condy might stay on as secretary of state under McCain though, she has done a good job

    Please could you change your avatar.

    We're happy to debate with you, but there's no need for the arguably-racist avatar.

    I can still play them on the website. Unfortunately the entire episode is STILL not available on the torrents when they're usually up just hours after the broadcast :shy:

    Maya Rudolph came back to play Michelle Obama. They seem to be relying on past castmembers returning to play everyone.

    I love me some good election results coverage. Unfortunately for the US one it doesn't really start getting interesting until about 4 or 5 in the morning and I really don't want to fuck up my sleeping pattern too much.

    Yeah most probably. I might arrange a morning of leave if I am entitled to it. Otherwise I can say the trains were delayed or summat.
