Sweary McCain Amnesia

Westminster is very dead but at least the US are entertaining us. Guido’s favourite detail from the fiscal cliff fall-out was Politico’s snippet about GOP House Chairman Boehner telling Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to “go f**k” himself outside of the Oval Office.

Even nominal Republicans like Meghan McCann got upset:

That would be the daughter of foul mouthed John McCain, who famously dropped the c-bomb at Meghan’s mother in public in 1992“S**thead,” “***hole” and “f**king jerk” are all regulars in the McCain playbook too…

It’s Kerry

John Kerry will been nominated by Obama to replace Hillary Clinton. The office of Secretary of State should be more than a safe haven for Democrat presidential losers. Interestingly the first white male to hold the job since 1997.

Profundity of the Punditry: Romney Victory Special

And so the time comes to name and shame those who have been left red-faced by their ill-advised presidential predictions. We all make bad calls sometimes, but since Nate Silver was sent to save the world from this sort of thing, there really is no excuse. Top of the pile is the Telegraph’s Janet Daley, who had the misfortune of backing Mitt Romney after failing to tip John Major in 1992. After all, “I lost my chance to be the only political journalist to have made a correct prediction of that momentous election in print. Wouldn’t want that to happen again”. It didn’t…

Meanwhile American pollster Dick Morris put his misguided pipe-dream prediction that Romney would take home 325 electoral college votes down to the minority vote pulling through, while the expertly-coiffed Tim Stanley insisted that Mitt had the ‘x-factor’. Election specialist James Delingpole thought Romney had it, while Charles Moore thought his gaffes were a sign he would end up in the White House. The Sun’s Louise Mensch was insisting it wasn’t over way into the wee hours on Sky News last night…

Cameron Happy to See Obama Re-Elected

The Cameroons in Downing Street will be genuinely happy to see that an incumbent head of government can hold office despite a faltering economy:

Guido takes consolation that he won his £100 bet with the ever optimistic Dan Hodges, who bet that Obama would win by a landslide margin of 5%.

Obama’s margin is tight, tighter than it was against McCain. Republicans also advanced in Congress. America remains divided…
