Can I say straight away, I will not be staying up waiting with baited breath, to find out whether one redneck from Wyoming has beaten another redneck from Wyoming. No doubt for the next week the polling anoraks will be telling us how exciting it is, how significant the result is for the future of the Western democracies and beyond... but excuse me... I couldn't give a stuff! Two pro-market Northern Americans punching each others lights out for billions of dollars... I'd rather watch the Heavyweight boxing championship... and I don't give a stuff about that either.

There are much more interesting things happening in the world. This one about the Scottish donkeys certainly gets pride of place for me.
