iPoker Face

If you are one of the most senior US politicians attending a crucial hearing on potential military intervention in Syria, being snapped playing poker on your phone doesn’t look great. Well that’s what happened to John McCain last night:

Suppose the British equivalent would be Tom Harris watching Doctor Who on one of his many taxpayer-funded iPads…

Labour Charging Members for Laughter

What’s the only thing worse than an email from the Labour Party? Well one that opens with “Your invitation to join Eddie Izzard and Jo Brand” must be pretty high up the list.  Labour are organising “Stand Up For Labour” – an evening of comedy with scant disregard for the feelings wheelchair bound members. The name reminded Guido of the last time he heard a politician utter those words, and given it’s a very slow Friday in the middle of August:

Apparently the event will “you rolling in the aisles with a great night of laughs for Labour.” A feeling many of us do not need to pay £30 for the daily pleasure.

Weiner Sexting Girl Shoots Celeb Porno

Continuing in the age old tradition of getting your kit off after being caught up in a political scandal, Sydney Leathers is not even bothering to wait until Anthony Weiner loses the Democratic primary in the race to be the next Mayor of New York. The latest girl involved in in his ongoing scandal fuelled slow motion car crash comeback has already managed to shoot a porn film:

“I’m Sydney Leathers. Anthony Weiner and I had a ‘sexting’ relationship for several months, and that came out in the press, so here I am!”

The Barry and Dave Show

Everyone got something out of that Obama presser. Labour are pushing the President’s line that “I think the UK’s participation in the EU is an expression of its influence”, while No.10 will be cock-a-hoop with the endorsement of the renegotiation strategy: “You probably want to see if you can fix what’s broken in a very important relationship before you break it off.” Those Tory Eurosceptic backbenchers are such big Obama fans, a gentle chiding from the him will definitely get them to pipe down and fall into line. Needless to say Dave dodged most of James Landale’s four parter question.

AP Changes Password

One hacked tweet yesterday and the DOW plunges 100 points, only to regain it all in a matter of minutes. The AP twitter account has been restored this afternoon, the offending tweet deleted, and normality returns to the markets…

UPDATE: Twitter provocateur Old Holborn has been in touch to say that he has had the police round after he trolled the whole of Liverpool and they are more interested in the death threats against him.[…]

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.[…]
