We, or certainly I, complain about personal politics in the UK, but it is nothing compared to the day of lunacy in the US.
Casting aspertions, Donald Trump appears to have launched his presidential bid by attacking Obama for potentially not being born in the US.
His argument has been on a subtle nuance in the US Constitution that he must be born in the country.
Such a detrimental argument has helped fuel race tensions in the country, which are as quiet as coalition tensions in the UK coalition for all their subtlety.
Barack has weathered this carnival side show, but it is indicative of a brutal campaign to follow. The gauntlets have been thrown.
