Following on from what I wrote yesterday about George Bush, in the same article Charlie Brooker describes John Kerry as resembling a haunted tree. I think it's a genius description. It never would have occurred to me, but since I've read it, I can't get over it. I'd vote for Kerry if I were in the States, but I have to admit that if I were casting a haunted tree in a film and he turned up at the audition:
'Hi, I'm John Kerry' 'Gentlemen, we have our tree!'
