Now the election is getting nasty. The Guardian, a newspaper in England, has started wishing fondly for past presidential assassins:

On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod's law dictates he'll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr - where are you now that we need you?

I sent a note to the Guardian at reader@observer.co.uk as follows:
Indeed, I too will be praying, too, but for the reporters and editors of the Guardian. How Christian of you to seek the death the President of the United States. How funny, how really funny. I'm sure all your editors and Mr. Brooker are still laughing over the deaths of Lincoln and Kennedy and the shooting of Ronald Reagan.

Perhaps Mr. Brooker can next hope Mr. and Mrs. Blair go speeding through the Paris tunnels.

You see, if Mr. Brooker would have called for the death of his own Prime Minister, the English public would have rose up in horror against him... but where will they be for us?
