“Despite living there for the better part of four years, there are many things I can?t explain about Britain: the instinct to queue, the bad plumbing, and how a culture with such bland native food can love curry so much. What I can explain are the basics about the British elections held tomorrow”

josh marshall’s talking points memo is a rock-solid democratic centrist pol-blog: kenny baer is a guest contributor who’s some kind of professional “consultant” (when i grow this is what i want to be too! how do you get started??)

the three comedy things kenny “can’t explain” – hoho the brits w.their bad teeth and love of jerry lewis ect ect – are REALLY EASY TO EXPLAIN! hence i have little reason to trust any of his explanations of brit voting which aren’t purely technical, ie that require imagination gumption nous and hunchpower
