Samuel Jackson makes it work…
They’re having a bit of a nightmare over at Political Scrapbook towers this afternoon. Borrowing a quote from the Racing Post, the lefty blog ran a story that David Cameron had snubbed a phone call with Barack Obama because he was playing tennis with Rebekah Brooks’ husband, Charlie. Funny they weren’t so vocal about Gordon Brown pathetically begging Obama five times for a fifteen minute meeting in a kitchen, or Tony Blair bombing countries on the whim of an American president. In terms of the special relationship, a stand-up-for-yourself Hugh Grant-style approach should surely be cheered…

Ol’ Blue Eyes Andy Williams has died at age 84. Guido will leave you with some of his final public words. About President Obama:

The election moves from being a referendum on Obama – “are you better off now than you were 4 years ago” – to a choice about the kind of future America the voters want. A socialised European-style America or a low tax, free enterprise America.
Rep. Paul Ryan first came on to Guido’s radar in 2011 when as chairman of the House Budget Committee he launched this 3-minute video
He should kick Biden’s ass in the televised VP Debates…
Mitt Romney’s London visit is not going well. After insulting the Olympics (a grave crime apparently) and forgetting Miliband’s name, Guido learns that tonight’s fundraiser is struggling to get the numbers.
The Republican candidate has been forced to cut prices […]
