What is wrong with people? First Howard gets re-elected here, then George Dubya in the states. Actually I know what’s wrong – people are freakin’ idiots with only limited capacity for independent thought, making it impossible for them to consider any idea or issue beyond their own immediate petty scope or experience. Democracy is a fine idea – apart from the bit about giving any slack jawed idiot the vote.
So, four more years of American arrogance, jingoism, militarism and short-sightedness on just about every issue that matters. Enjoy western civilisation while you can people – with GWB running the show I have a feeling it might not be around very much longer.
