Fair and balanced newschannel Fox News has reported that the Obama administration has suffered its first major reversal after only four million people turned up at the incoming president’s inauguration.
” A collection of leftists, homosexuals, bookreaders and “fancy” people who use cutlery when eating turned up.” a Fox News reporter said from under a huge mass of gleaming blonde hair. She then interrupted her report to announce that she had spotted a potential husband, and legged it.
Fox also reported that many “real” Americans spent the day doing real American things as opposed to supporting the new commander in chief. This included, shootin’, huntin’ and looking funny at dark skinned people.

The thing about Fianna Fail is that it’s like the masons. Loyalty is everything, and yet in the funniest ways. Consider the upcoming local elections: What are the bets that we’ll see a chunk of FF councillors resign from the party before the elections to run as independents, and then rejoin quietly after the elections? Disloyal? Absolutely not. In FF, winning is everything: Do what (Or indeed, whom.) you have to do and as long as you remember who your friends are on the other side of polling day, everyone’s happy.
Of course, I don’t blame FF for this. They know what crap their voters will take, and give it to them in spades. This is FG and Labour’s fault, for not nailing candidate’s records to the candidates. We don’t do that in Ireland, because FG and Labour say that the Irish voters don’t want negative campaigning.
Which is why FG/Labour last won an election in November 1982.
