Alas, this is not a commercial break as this blog has not mastered that aspect of the problem yet. However, we need a break to have another quick look at what is going on across the Pond. The answer is nobody knows or understands.

Well, looks like it's up to us to keep the home fires burning while you're gone (climate change permitting). So, come on chaps, mustn't let one of the web's finest blogs go into recession!

Actually, looking at the polls, it seems that racism is taking an active part in the US presidential election. However, it appears to be the black vote which has a strong racist element to it, with the majority white vote being quite evenly split.

Is it just me, or does that photo look like it belongs in a tinpot third-world dictatorship? Or Red Square in the '70s? Frankly, Obama creeps me out. Not because he's black, but because he's creepy. (Of course "creepy" will now be a "code word" for "black". You can't win.)

Reportedly, the 90% of Blacks voting for O'Bama are not racist, the 10% of Blacks voting for McInsane are not racist but any Whites not voting for O'Bama are racist.

Steve sailer has taken a keen interest in O'Bama and has just published a book on him which can be downloaded before publication, see http://isteve.blogspot.com/2008/10/big- ... -book.html

John Derbyshire has reviewed it thus:

... Steve Sailer gives us the real Barack Obama, who turns out to be very very different -- and much more INTERESTING -- than the bland healer/uniter image stitched together out of whole cloth this past six years by Obama's packager, David Axelrod. Making heavy use of Obama's own writings, which he admires for their literary artistry, Sailer gives the deepest insights I have yet seen into Obama's lifelong obsession with "race and inheritance," and rounds off this brilliant character portrait with speculations on how Obama's personality might play out in the Presidency. ...

You can find the whole 264-page book at:

Europeans should be very worried about Obama. He believes that the US as global policeman has greatly offended our erstwhile allies (in the Dem codebook, to cause offense is a serious crime, indeed). His prescription will involve a retraction of American military power. Europeans may find the American shield has been transported away, and that bullies like Russia have more lattitude. So, either Europe bulks up or bends over. Take your pick.

For the last several decades, blacks have voted about 90% for the Democrat candidate regardless of race. This year, about 95% will vote for Obama, if the polls are to be believed. Hillary Clinton had many prominent black politicians among her supporters initially, but most dropped away and supported Obama. Many black politicians say the historic opportunity to elect a black president trumps everything else. It seems to me that American blacks have more of a tribal identity than whites, generally.

The mainstream media presents Obama's election as a fait accompli, but, in the words of American philosopher Yogi Berra, "It ain't over till it's over."

Interestingly even the MSM, having presented that fait accompli, just as they did with Hillary who actually won the primaries, then start muttering about not being able to fathom why the polls are not showing it unequivocally.

I wonder to what extent all this intense media interest in the US election is driving people from the no-reply media to the blogosphere?
I also suspect that in their hurry to dis' Palin the polls haven't understood the complexity of womens' attitudes to her.

... Four of the top six overall donors are Wall Street financial firms participating in part of the recently passed $850 billion bailout – Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), Citigroup (NYSE:C), JP Morgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS). Employees of those firms gave $10.4 million to Democrats and $6 million to Republicans or 63 percent Democrat. Employees of bank Goldman Sachs alone gave $3.6 million to Democrats and $1.3 million to Republicans, a nearly 3-to-1 ratio. ...

PaddyPower is offering 6 to 1 on John McCain and 12 to 1 on on the non-American diversoid.

I couldn't find any other gambling outfits offering bets on the contest. Ladbrokes, Joe Coral and William Hill are out of it. But I could have sworn that William Hill at least was running a book on the previous US Presidential election. So this time no odds is odd. Very strange, even.

Attractive odds on McCain though. Fancy a punt?
