A UK view of the US elections... Interesting to see how others perceive our little drama.

Funniest part? Headline that reads "Dead Man Wins Senate Race". I can just picture their faces. =)

no, the best part is the baby pink and baby blue colors they use in their graph.

Speaking from Ireland, where we view the US elections much the same as in the UK, we were just shaking out heads. I am also shaking mine at the fact that ballot boxes seem to have been overlooked, ballot cards are hard to read, but most of all, that the state is allowed to count when the brother of a presidential nominee is governer...

I think the british have always certainly been guilty of one thing: bad puns. I mean come on! "The Florida Keys?" This is something I'd expect from an old Bullwinkle cartoon. =)

Bad puns are a fine tradition of ours for sure - the badder, the better!The Big Breakfast TV show makes a feature of the best puns in the morning tabloids.
