Mystifying American Politics

It’s that time again where I tell myself that I must improve my knowledge of US politics.
All these candidates I’m reading about in the paper are from different parties, aren’t they? That must be why they’re all criticising eachother and claiming that the other person’s policies are rubbish?
Nope, they’re all from the same party. How odd.

    Geoff made a similar observation here http://geoffarnold.com/?p=1877.
    I have to say in recent years in the UK the conservatives have been really good at sticking the knife in each other, as were Labour in the ’80s.
