Politicans and world leaders making news and in the news, and spouting hot air
SAY what you will about Mitt Romney. He does, however, answer a question. What is Obama’s view on legalising marijuana and gay marriage? He will have a debate…
PS: My mother had one rule: never trust a man who dyes his hair. They both do…
Says Arnold Schwarzenegger: “I need your clothes, your boots, and your Barclays cycle…”
THE Race for the White House with Instagram. Associated Press photographers have been using Instagram to follow Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan’s Republican bid for Presidency of the United States:
“Ima hitpresident Obama with that Lee Harvey Oswald swag.”
“Well Ima Assassinate president Obama this evening !…Gotta get this monkey off my chest while he’s in town -_-.”
“is gonna be defenseless once I aim the Assault Rifle at Barack’s Forehead… F* the #DNC.”
DEMOCRATS who wants to ban profits:
Putin has opted for a hang glider as his mean of elevation. He will not be fired from a cannon. That would, says his reps, be ridiculous.
Philomena Lynott tells Hot Press magazine:
“As far as I am concerned, Mitt Romney’s opposition to gay marriage and to civil unions for gays makes him anti-gay – which is not something that Philip would have supported. He had some wonderful gay friends, as indeed I do, and they deserve equal treatment in every respect, whether in Ireland or the United States. Neither would Philip have supported his policy of taxing the poor and offering tax cuts to the rich, which Paul Ryan is advocating. There is certainly no way that I would want the Lynott name to be associated with any of those ideas.”
IS this the best politcal campaign slogan ever? It might be the worst. It looks like it needs of an elipse:
“Senator AD Stephen does things…” …with dogs; …with lace; …with home furnishings that will knock you bandy; …with love; …badly..
GOD wants to arrest Tony Blair. Well, at least Archbishop and Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu does. He writes:
The immorality of the United States and Great Britain’s decision to invade Iraq in 2003, premised on the lie that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, has destabilised and polarised the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history.
A WEEK in the life of Boris Johnson:
FACE of the Day: At the Republican Convention 2012, Vermin Supreme walks with demonstrators marching through the streets of Tampa, Fla., to protest against pretty much everything the GOP stands for:
AT the Republican Par convention 2012, hats are much in evidence. So too are beige trousers. Do you need to beige slacks to be a GOP politico?
CLINT Eastwood Hollywood appeared at the Republican Party convention stage ahead of Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech for his party’s presidential nomination. Eastwood addressed Barack Obama, who was played by an empty wooden chair.
Grundy wanted to make a citizen’s arrest, apprehending Blair for alleged crimes connected to the Iraq war.
The plan failed because police never arrived.
Says Mayor Pavličić:
“It’s too personal. I’ve had to move my family out of the city because of all this pressure…I am sure that the citizens of Novi Sad will recognize this as a lynch mob atmosphere and will support me. Therefore I want to tell the opposition I am not as much of a plonker as they claim I am.”
MITT R0mney is a song. Hugh Atkin (Will The Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up (feat. Eminem) has created this gem:
The real Mitt Romney stands up and reflects on who he is, what he believes and why he is running for office.
Mitt is large. He contains multitudes.
QUEEN Julia Gillard lands on the Cook Islands:
His group is alleged to have numbered Sgt. Anthony Peden, Pvt. Christopher Salmon, Pfc. Michael Burnet. Also under arrest for murder is Salmon’s wife, Heather Salmon.
Aguigui worked as a page at the 2008 Republican National Convention in Minnesota. He was arrested for the alleged murder of Pvt. Michael Roark who he, reportedly, thought would ruin the plan.

At the Republican National Convention in Tampa, porn star Lisa Ann – she played Serra Paylin in corporate porn flick Who’s Nailin’ Paylin? - has been hired to perform a GOP-styled strip show at Thee DollHouse adult club.
VLADIMIR Putin might be more than just a torso. Opposition leader Boris Nemtsov’s has given his name to a report entitled “The Life of A Galley Slave” about the wealth of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Nemstov and co-author Solidarity activist Leonid Martynyuk claim that President Vladimir Putin is using billions of taxpayers’ rubles on 20 luxurious residences, dozens of jets, four yachts and a collection of exquisite wristwatches.
“One of the most serious reasons prompting V. Putin to hold on to power is the atmosphere of wealth and luxury to which he has become accustomed. In a country where more than 20 million people barely make ends meet, the luxurious life of the president is a blatant and cynical challenge to society. We absolutely cannot put up with this….We did not publish data on the cost of the clothes and things that Putin regularly uses: the suits, shoes and ties worth tens of thousands of dollars – mere trifles when compared to the villas, aeroplanes watches and cars…In a country where more than 20 million people can hardly make ends meet, the luxurious life of the president is a blatant and cynical challenge to society by a limitless ruler”
TO the lighting of the Paralympic Cauldron in Trafalgar Square, where David Cameron is keen to dismiss any idea that he is upset that London Mayor of London Boris Johnson is a bazillion times more popular than he is. You can take the boy out of Eton but you cannot take Eton out of the boy…
RADIO Gold: From May 2010, an exchange between Michael D Higgins (who was elected President of Ireland last year) and Tea Party-loving radio guy Michael Graham on Irish radio station Newstalk 106-108fm. (The end is choice):
TODD Akin continues to dig his way to China. The Missouri politico who gave us a lesson on rape and women’s bodies (he said victims can’t get pregnant if it’s ‘legitimate’ rape - video), is the subject of a BBC headline: “Rape-gaffe candidate goes on the attack.” Well, so long as he does it right, there should be no embarrassing paternity tests. (Although watch out for the vaginal dentata.)
