A LESSON FOR LEFTISTS: AUSTRALIANS ARE NOT SPANIARDS
Australian voters rejected the anti-war, anti-Bush and anti-American leftist Mark Latham and returned Prime Minister John Howard to office with an increased majority
. Australia, with a population of a mere 20 million, has been America's most steadfast ally and has stood with us in battle in every war we have fought for the last century. It can't really be said often enough that Australia has always been America's true friend.
Latham, interestingly enough, had help from the Kerry campaign
which would have liked to see Australia withdraw from Iraq in order to embarrass President Bush just before the November election, despite pro-forma denials
to the contrary for American consumption. I have a lot of criticisms about how the Bush administration handled the occupation of Iraq but this sort of shameful attitude, last displayed when some liberal blogs and commenters wailed with dismay when Saddam was captured, is the reason why I cannot vote for a Democrat until that party gets its head straight on national security, defense and foreign affairs.
Admittedly, this is beneath my usual standard of behavior but in the aftermath of the debates I'm feeling a little partisan today, so....HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !
