    Mr Hippo's Political Views...

    Not to be taken seriously!

    First of all, let me say that I am apolitical – no matter what a party’s manifesto is, it always translates after the election to ‘Screw the working man!”. Most Brits who listen to the Chancellor’s budget speech only wait to hear six words “Cigarettes – up, beer – up, petrol – up!” We have elections that are over in weeks but in the USA, they seem to go on for ever!

    2008 Campaign slogans – where are the scriptwriters? We all remember ‘I like Ike’, ‘All the way with LBJ’ and who can ever forget Thomas Dewey with ‘A vote for Dewey is also a vote for Huey, Louie and their Uncle Donald!”
    This year’s offerings are:-
    John McCain with ‘I was a prisoner of war’ – even Somchai in Nakorn Podunk knows that. The American people are not interested in what you were but what you will do for them!
    Barack Obama with ‘Yes, we can’ – it’s catchy but have we heard it before? It’s the chorus line from the TV series ‘Bob the Builder’.

    The Polls – Results from a UK poll will go something like this ‘Conservatives 5%, Labour 5% and 90% said ‘I’ll vote for the posh one, he should never have been selected for Big Brother.’
    Meanwhile over in the States, they put the polls under minute scrutiny:-
    “In Alabama, we polled elderly black women who play bingo, watch Oprah, paint their toenails but don’t eat cornbread…”
    “In New Mexico, most illegal Mexican workers would vote for…”

    The TV interviews – don’t you just love them?
    CNN interviewing Billy Joe Bob and his wife Sue Beth:-
    CNN “What do you think about Obama?”
    Billy Joe Bob “Not a lot, we only drive through there when we are going to Georgia.”
    Sue Beth “Not that Obama – the other who is a Tibetan monk!”
