talking about their politics. however it's fun for us as americans saying we didn't [beep] up this time. it's kind of funny when someone else does it. but as an outside observer it appears a lot of people voted over there with emotion and didn't quite understand what they were voting for, maybe. as americans we say, yes we do understand that. we do understand that. we are kinderred spirits. first up "donald of orange" speaking of american ignorance, sun-dried tomato donald trump showed up in scotland on friday to promote his local golf courses and, to demonstrate just how little he understands about the world around him, he tweeted.
