Race for the Aras

•Seeing as the presidential election has turned into another branch of showbiz, next time can we have a viewers' telephone vote line? We could have an expert panel giving them the once over. Miriam O'Callaghan would make a perfect Cheryl Cole, Pat Kenny could be Simon Cowell, Joe Duffy a Louis Walsh and, for a bit of glamour, Anne Doyle.

That sure would put a bit of oomph into proceedings. One could be voted off every week, and given a job in Seanad Eireann as a consolation prize. The winner would be president for a year only and then put on next year's panel as a guest.

Now that really would put this Mickey Mouse appointment into perspective.
