Live election news

The BBC is doing one of their live blog thingies that they did so well through the Olympics for the US elections. I just spotted this emailed-in comment from one of my former countrymen:
Elaine Cahill in Raleigh, North Carolina says: I just voted for the Republican ticket. Politicians like Obama are why I left England and immigrated to the USA where I was tired of paying for other people to stay on the dole.
Will Elaine blame the crappy English schooling system next for her inability to separate "immigrate" from "emigrate"? spEak You're bRanes duck, speak your branes. At least Elaine will be relieved to hear that the Republicans are supporting a better class of person being on the dole.

Methinks the blogger doth protest a smidgen too much. Doubtless he had some poor locum in when he penned the headline to this little piece:


Diplomacy at it's best (and no redeeming "sic")

As far as egregious "spEak You’re bRanes" material goes, it's...well... pretty fucking egregious. Shame on you, Tobias. Smollett would say you were in a right Pickle.
