Well the Irish vote is certainly pretty certain – 94%!
I know this leaves me open to horrendous amounts of abuse, but my 100% anti-Bush stance has actually wavered over the last few weeks. I think I’m one of those that has slightly overdosed on Michael Moore-type over-stated opinions. A few documentaries lately (on various channels) have shown very interesting histories on both candidates. Right now, I’m wondering what Kerry would actually bring to the job, and if Iraq hadn’t gone so pear-shaped, would Bush actually be viewed as a reasonably decent president?

Wash your mouth out with soap Locotes. Bush and ‘reasonably decent’ in the same sentence? Oh please. 😉

I was just amazed I could write ‘anti-Bush’ and keep a straight face. It’s so not me…

I am really surprised that Switzerland had voted Kerry with 91%

Maybe someone’s having a laugh, H – you can, after all, say you come from anywhere on that list.

Or maybe the Swiss are pro-Kerry. Who knows what the inner working of the Swiss mind are? Did Kerry go to finishing school in CH?

Can one really believe there are dozens of Monsignori in the Vatican sitting at their computers in black cassocks with violet piping “voting” for the U.S. President? On the other hand, the result-60% for Kerry, 39% for Bush-closely matches what noted Vaticanista John Allen concluded from his informal poll. Molto interessante!

Well, FT, as you well know, they are a very computer literate crowd in the Vatican.
