Super Pancake Chooseday….

Sorry about the title, just getting into the swing of the second biggest day of the Presidential election. Conall has some Obama thoughts. And Richard has been running a sterling commentary on the US presidential campaign over at Brassneck. Though as Janet Daley points out, the European view of US politics can get it badly wrong, not least because many of the original Kennedy Democrats went Republican for Reagan. And of course there’s the story of British Tories for Obama. Lastly, if you are an obsessive and within a throw of South Dublin, why not join other addicts at the Politics.ie bash in Upper George’s Street, Dun Laoighaire. €15 at the door, or €10 concession if you {encode=”david@politics.ie” title=”email David”} beforehand.
