Springer for the Senate

The notorious talkshow host, and former mayor of Cincinatti, Jerry Springer is considering running for the Senate.

This is a nice piece by Mark Lawson – I like:

The state of American culture might suggest a horrible logic in President Springer, presiding over a country run by live-on-television plebiscites, with policy dilemmas snappily packaged: I’ve Got Chemical Weapons And Would Use Them!, I’m Dying And Can’t Get Medicare! Thankfully, that isn’t possible because of the presenter’s English birth: the US commander-in-chief must be a natural-born citizen.Britain may be powerless to stop some American follies, but we’ve inadvertently spared them that one.
