Russian TV Newsreader Gives Obama the Finger

Tatiana Limanova, an award-winning journalist and host of a Russian national news show on the REN-TV channel, reported on the APEC summit in the United States, giving a traditional gesture a moment after mentioning Obama. The station’s owner is close to Vladamir Putin, Tatiana has now been fired. Guido is unable to confirm that she has been offered a job on Fox News…

Well It’s One Way To Deal With a Sex Scandal

Republican Presidential hopeful Herman Cain just burst into rendition of “He Looked Beyond My Faults” at a press conference:

Nothing to do with the allegations swirling around his campaign today then…

First Rule of Politics

Earlier this week Guido took Mrs Fawkes to a preview showing of George Clooney’s new political thriller “The Ides of March”. Mrs Fawkes isn’t interested in politics, but she is interested in George Clooney. Half the Lobby were at the screening as well – some with their other halves – it is a deeply political thriller about a US presidential campaign. Clooney follows in the footsteps of Robert Redford in “The Candidate” (1972) in as much that it is about a good looking liberal-left politician who has to make compromises with reality to win an election. Guido won’t spoil the story, but it will appeal to co-conspirators.

There was one line that particularly amused Guido and judging by the loud guffaws, the Lobby – “You can start wars and bankrupt the country. They’ll forgive you for that. But you don’t f**k the intern.” Or the political adviser…

Snorting Sarah’s Sexy Secrets

It seems Coke & Sex Week has gone international, with another prominent right-winger’s past being flung into the public eye. This one is going to be huge. Sarah Palin is accused of having a one night stand in 1987, behind her soon to be husband’s back, with 6ft 7in NBA player Glen Rice. The tryst allegedly took place in her sister Molly’s dorm room at the University of Alaska. Palin was a sports reporter at the time. However that’s not all:

“The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin by the respected if controversial author, Joe McGinniss, claims Palin was seen snorting cocaine off the top of a 55-gallon drum while snowmobiling with friends. It also alleges she smoked marijuana with a professor while at Mat-Su College in Alaska.”

Brad Hanson, Todd Palin’s business partner is also accused of sleeping with the former Alaskan governor in 1996. Unlike with a certain Tory Chancellor, at least it seems Palin wasn’t so stupid as to be caught grinning in front a plate of charlie. This might not go down so well with the hockey moms, but Guido is certainly amused…

Obama Has Listened to Balls!

Every time he hears Ed Balls harp on about a global Plan B, Guido wonders what that might be. And now we know – Plan Barack. The President is staring into an abyss, the prospect of him losing the election is now very real. Around his neck is a failed $825 billion stimulus package, the first downgrade in US history and the highest spending and debt since World War II, and his solution? Another $450 billion stimulus package of course…

Faced with defeat, Obama has taken a leaf out of Gordon’s book by throwing as much money as he possibly can up into the air, and hoping that people won’t notice that he’s mugging them to do so. This is like Christmas for Balls as it gives a semblance of credibility to his economic lunacy…

Ron Paul is “The One”

You wouldn’t know that Ron Paul came second in Iowa from the reporting of the Republican nomination race.Which is why his latest campaign advert mocks his rivals. The libertarian inclined candidate is running on an anti-establishment platform of bringing the troops home, sound money and low taxes. The difference is, he means it.

Huntsman Throws Spanner in Romney’s London Visit

Given the Yanks are in town to write about British politics, Guido thought he would turn his hand to the American presidential bid. Coincidently Republican front-runner Mitt Romney is also in London today to raise some cash from expats. He is trying to keep a low profile and avoid the media, though apparently he’s a little put out Dave is too busy to see him. Those McCain pictures still haunt some in Cameroon circles…

However  just because the visit is going under the radar doesn’t mean there hasn’t been any campaign fun and games. Romney was meant to be putting his cap around at the home of Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, but has been forced to move his fundraiser and other meetings to Dartmouth House in Mayfair instead.

It turns out Lady Rothschild is an extremely vocal supporter of Romney’s rival Jon Huntsman and has raised $1.2 million for him already. Apparently her position was made very clear…

Perhaps a coincidence that the Huntsman campaign poached Conyers Davies, CCHQ’s Head of Operations, at the end of last month…

Obama Isn’t Working

While Palin begs for a meeting, it seems Republican front-runner Mitt Romney has skipped straight to emulating Maggie:

Worked for her. Saatchi and Saatchi should send an invoice…

UPDATE: Ben Brogan points out that

Mitt Romney’s rip off of Margaret Thatcher’s famous 1979 “Labour isn’t working” poster is quite funny. But while the image is still striking, he seems to have missed the point: “Labour isn’t working” is a clever bit of wordplay. “Obama isn’t working” isn’t.

Deathbed Denunciation Means John Edwards Faces 30 Years

Vicky Pryce is nothing compared to Elisabeth Edwards in the scorned woman stakes. As Elisabeth lay dying from cancer she recorded a deathbed denunciation of her adulterous husband John Edwards, the Democratic vice-presidential running mate of John Kerry. Edwards diverted funds from his campaign to his mistress. America’s only paper worth reading, The National Inquirer, has the scoop:

…in a devastating act of ultimate revenge, a dying Elizabeth Ed­wards recorded a bombshell secret videotape for prosecutors – nailing her cheating husband John as he will stand trial on charges that could land him behind bars for 30 years.

That’s the stunning secret behind the federal indictment brought against the disgraced former presidential candi­date on June 3 -– following a two-year grand jury investigation into whether he illegally used campaign funds to cover up his affair with his then-pregnant mistress Rielle Hunter.

Serial adulterer Chris Huhne, like John Edwards, paraded his family at election time and also paid his mistress Carina Trimingham out of campaign funds when she worked on his leadership campaign. Vicky should take her lead from Elisabeth Edwards’ courage and thoroughly avenge her humiliation…

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
