John Howard Brings it Home

That would be the leader of Australia, who not only got re-elected, but also increased his party's majority. Thanks to Ace.

This, in spite of the vigorous campainging in Australia by John Kerry's own sister, who was trying to sway one of America's most important allies. More proof that Kerrys don't think much of actual allies, only of allies who have solemnly promised not to help us under any circumstances. And this in spite of the fact that Australians are apparently more opposed to the War on Terror than Americans. That certainly is good news. It gives me hope for embattled British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who also faces severe opposition for his support of the Bush doctrine.

And for some really, really cool stuff, you have to go check out Allah's surpisingly profanity-free links here and here. They are about today's elections in Afghanistan, the first Afghan elections in the history of the entire world, and it looks like the Afghans are appropriately enthused.

Key quote: "Still, who knows? Maybe it'll all fall apart. Keep those fingers crossed, Kerry voters!"

Congratulations, Afghanistan. And in terms of voter turn-out, congratulations on totally shaming the American electorate.
