SIDNEY, Australia (AP) -- Australia's conservative prime minister [John Howard] slammed Barack Obama on Sunday over his opposition to the Iraq war, a day after Obama announced his intention to run for the White House in 2008.
"If I were running al Qaeda in Iraq, I would put a circle around March 2008 and be praying as many times as possible for a victory, not only for Obama but also for the Democrats."
Look at Obama's response:
"If Prime Minister Howard truly believes what he says, perhaps his country should find its way to contribute more than just 1,400 troops so some American troops can come home," [Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs] said. "It's easy to talk tough when it's not your country or your troops making the sacrifices."
Dear me, Prime Minister Howard: Is this a piece of YOUR ass I found here on this floor?
Oh, and by the way - how come the right-wingers aren't throwing a shit-fit over the head of a FOREIGN COUNTRY attacking a United States Senator? Isn't that the sort of thing they always get outraged over?
