In the US they have finally finished counting the election results and, joy of joys, losing Republican Mitt Romney finished on 47%.
If you need reminding why this is significant, on the campaign trail Romney was filmed saying:
“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what … who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. … These are people who pay no income tax. … and so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

Looks like you got it the wrong way around Mitt – you only managed to convince 47%…
