image for Obama hires Python Cleese
Lampooning GOP nutter John McCain in a revamped dead parrot sketch gets Obama's vote

Washington DC - (Primary Mess): Fed up with criticism that his Iraq policies aren't firing on all four cylinders Barack Obama has hired former Monty Python actor John Cleese, famous for his trademark "Do Not Mention Ze Vor" catchphrase.

Cleese, 69, is said to be keen to scriptwrite a series of animated cartoons lampooning Republican contender John McCain as a dead parrot candidate.

And his plans for Democratic nomination rival Hillary Clinton may center on Fawlty Towers's heroine Sybil Fawlty, described by her TV husband as scary as 'someone machine-gunning a seal'

"Senator Obama might like my subtle interpretation of the WTC Twin Towers fiasco in a revamped Fawlty Towers take," Cleese said from is California home today.

"Ideally I'd like to start straight away," Cleese added.

"Next week's Papal visit to Capitol Hill could be a great opportunity to resurrect that Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition sketch on the Bush Administration 'fessing up to the Grand Inquisitor himself."

Connie Booth is 55.
