I've said previously that if I was a USian I'd vote for McCain. I wouldn't; I like playing devil's advocate but not fool's apologist. So I'd vote for Obama, even though he might be no better than Blair with a tan.
* When kids challenge me about my atheism/belief in the theory of evolution they always ask if I think I was descended from monkeys. I have taken to saying 'Yes! I am descended from millions of really smart simians and clever homo sapiens. You are apparently descended from two idiots who couldn't follow simple instructions and a bunch of people who slept with their close relatives to populate the earth.'
