Al Qaeda's Newest Advisor: John Howard

Much is being made of Australian Prime Minister John Howard's comment regarding the '08 US election in general and more specifically about Barack Obama.

Who does this Howard think he is telling Americans how to vote is what most of us here are asking. I think we are looking at this all wrong. Howard isn't telling us who to vote for, he's acting in the capacity of advisor to Al Qaeda.

“If I were running Al Qaeda in Iraq,” Mr. Howard said, “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.”

Surely Mr. Howard realizes how much most Americans thoroughly resent foreign interference in their elections. I mean he'd have to, right? Surely he couldn't be THAT clueless, could he? Therefore it follows that he could not possibly have been addressing his comments to us. He had to have been speaking to Al Qaeda.

Does that fall into the category of "emboldening the enemy"?

Not quite sure what his intent was here. I have to conclude Mr. Howard is either a) rooting for an outcome favourable to Al Qaeda by pissing off the entire US citizenry or b) he seriously believes Al Qaeda wields a great deal of influence on our elections and that Obama would do them some serious damage so he is trying to trick them into supporting him.

It has to be one of the above, unless you go with the beautifully simple "Howard is retarded" there is no other logical conclusion.

I did enjoy Mr. Obama's response.

“If he’s ginned up to fight the good fight in Iraq, I would suggest that he calls up another 20,000 Australians and send them to Iraq,” Mr. Obama said. “Otherwise, it’s just a bunch of empty rhetoric.”

Basically a polite way of saying "shut up and show us your balls". Let's see them Mr. Howard....if you can extract them from the deathgrip Dubya has on them. Ah, didn't think so.

Whatever the reason I want to extend my personal and heartfelt thanks to Prime Minister Howard for doing his part to campaign for the democratic party by pissing off nearly the entire country. You go John-boy.

Unlike the Dixie Chicks, Obama-the-Candidate is making nice. Otherwise he woulda, coulda, shoulda said to Howard,

Pony-up or shut-up, Bushitter!

BTW, John Howard as principle advisor to Osama is a good touch. I smell an expansive post on this theme!
