US election fever, plus diva

"McCain is in trouble. He has started to pull undignified stunts, such as appearing on a segment of a popular cookery show stirring a pan of sauce and wearing an apron demanding you "Kiss the Candidate" (he reportedly spent $5,000 on a professional make-up artist to put his slap on)"

Wow, look at this...

Why Harry Potter author JK Rowling donated £1milllion to Labour

Daily Mail:
"The Harry Potter author - a close friend of Gordon Brown and his wife Sarah - claimed the Tories would leave 'poor and vulnerable' families worse off."

"Tory MP Ann Widdecombe, was one of those unimpressed. She said: 'JK Rowling has written so much fantasy it has entered her brain.

'She might as well have given the money to Lord Voldemort.

'At least the Prime Minister won't have to use the money to buy an invisibility cloak. He has already got one.' "

Comment - The money would have a better use if it went to a children's charity, not down the drain.
