Pond life in America has never seen activity to match the excitement engendered by the early action over the nomination for the Republican Presidential candidate.
Donald Duck has played his trump card by withdrawing from the race, thus allowing Frog Grimace a free run at Barrack Obama in 2012.
'The heyday of Disney is over' he told reporters kneeling at the poolside 'I have to face facts, Mickey Rooney and I are the past and no one ever understood a word I said!'
So the new cartoon era started by Frog's present enemy Kermit - who is behind unpleasant rumours that Frog is no longer standing - is taking over and America is waiting to see if Miss Piggy Palin will throw her tail into the ring. A Frog/Piggy Republican ticket might be an irresistible laugh for the good folks of the U S of A.
Meanwhile the White House has stepped on an attempt by the IMF to undrmine America's economy. This plan has come adrift as France has been discovered to be the dominant force in a flush fund found in a chamber pot in a New Hotel.
American politics has seldom seen such excitement. 'Walt would have been a little sad at the passing of Donald Duck' declared veteran reporter Alistar Cookies - America's best - but the Frog/Piggy era will not be short on humour!'
