U.S. Midterms back in the balance
News out of the United States tonight suggests that the results of the U.S. Midterm elections could be back in the balance. A Democrat senator from South Dakota has suffered a stroke. If forced to step down, his replacement would be chosen by the Republican Governor of South Dakota. He would almost certainly choose a fellow Republican, leaving the Senate hung 50-50.
Clearly, his condition may not be serious enough to warrant him stepping down, but it could cause a big impact if he did have to make way.
Ray to win X Factor!
Yes, it’s true. I want that precocious, cocky, saccharine tw*t, Ray, to win The X Factor this weekend.
Only by letting such one-hit-wonders-in-waiting win these things will we eventually drive them into the ground. One day Simon Cowell will live in a two-bed semi in Staines because he made one crap TV show too many. And I predict that a win for Ray and his inevitable downfall in 2007 could finally kill the format.
A win for Leona would be thoroughly undeserving. She is far too good for this series, and it would be simply cruel to lumber her with the ‘honour’ of winning such a pile of shite.
SO VOTE RAY!
