ANTI-AUSTRALIANS WINNING

Kerry beat Edwards in Wisconsin, but not by much:

John Kerry squeezed past hard-charging John Edwards on Tuesday to win Wisconsin's primary, gateway to a 10-state, two-man showdown March 2. Howard Dean, his candidacy doomed, considered endorsing one of his rivals.

From an Australian perspective, both leading candiates can go to hell. Kerry described our involvement in the war as fraudulent:

This president has done it wrong every step of the way.†He promised that he would have a real coalition.†He has a fraudulent coalition.

And that bastard Edwards doesnít even want to trade with us. (Where is Drago when we need him?) This comment from the Capitalist Lion sums up the present choice:

1) The kyoto-ratifying, tax-hiking, turn-country-over-to-UN-ing Frankenstein morph.

2) The socialist protectionism-pushing, welfare-grubbing, kyoto-ratifying, eco-tard lawyer.

Letís get Howard Dean back in the race! Sign the petition now!

To say nothing of the fact that he presumably believes that Australian GIs in Viet Nam were rapists and murderers.

This Drago, you want I should go and get him?

It makes me very angry to hear anyone, especially a fellow American, continue to put down the coalition.

These people may be upset a coalition was formed and we did not have the UN's blessing. Big Deal!
The UN does NOT run my government. Too bad the UN didn't like what the coalition has done => show the world how insignificant the UN is.

I hope the candidates running for US president realize that US Citizens will be voting in the election, NOT UN delegates.

`not a real coalition'. Oh,I see, like Lord of the Rings, Bush, Strider like, rode into the gates of death and, holding an army to its oath , went against Saddam at the head of a coalition of ghosts.
Well, that clears things up.Now all that needs fixing is, the coalition soldiers and govts. need to be cured of delusions as to where and what they were doing at the time.This should make those charlatans, psychologists, happy, years and years of lucrative `mental-health-work' are in the offing. Eureka, gold, the rush is on.

Oh, Kerry, the men in white coats will be calling on you soon enough if you keep that up.

That Drago's a real hoot, ain't he?

i think drago has some problems with his anger. he's even visited the howard dean petition site.

I don't think Drago has an anger management problem, he's just passionate.

That's why we've made him drama critic for Enemies of the ABC

Yeah! Damn unilateral Gondorite - where was UN approval on that? And notice no WMDs were found in Mordor....sexed up? You bet!

Aragorn lied, Orcs died!

We could do a Bored of the Rings 2004

Let's see, maybe...Bush as Aragorn, Blair as Frodo, Howard as Elrond, Chirac as Saruman, Saddam as the Balrog, Osama as Sauron, no, how about...

Bush as Frodo, Blair as Samwise Gamgee, Howard as Meriadoc, Aznar as Pippin, Chirac as Saruman, Saddam as the Balrog, Osama as Sauron. Galloway would make an excellent Wormtongue, but maybe Gollum's his role...

No, Gilligan is Wormtongue, the BBC is a very reluctant King Theoden, no this isn't working...

Anyway, back on topic.

On the unbelievable off-chance that Bush loses in November, Edwards might do us right. He's a trial-lawyer, and they really really hate to lose, that's a plus in the WOT. Then again, trail-lawyers like to make deals, and that's a minus.

But if I'm any indication, it's Bush come November. I'm voting for him, and I identified myself as a socialist less than two years ago. I think Australian/American harmony will grow over the next few years.

May it grow and blossom!

Aw shucks , Timothy.


Not bad casting, if Galloway is left as Gollum and Gilligan-BBC-ABC-NYTimes- are Wormtongue -though, this sounds a tad too schizophrenic for Wormtongue.
Ah,Wormtongue is the problem - this needs some nutting out.

Crumbs, it doesn't - Bush as Aragorn/Frodo.
