Dodging a bullet

2004 was supposed to be the year that all the leaders of the 'coalition of the willing' got their come-uppance at the ballot box. Slugger Latham was poised to beat up John Howard (at the polls I think but it's never entirely certain with him) while the long-jawed French-looking senator for Massachusets would open up a can of whup-ass on the evil Bush.

It didn't quite turn out that way, and judging from subsequent events, the US and Australia dodged one hell of a bullet. The disintegration of Latham and the ALP has been well documented, look around here for more, and Kerry appears to have joined the same path. Remembering John Edwards statement that, if you voted Democrat the lame would walk and the sick be healed, John Kerry has gone one better.

U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D- Mass., who was in town Sunday to help Gov. Jennifer Granholm campaign for her re-election bid, took time to take a jab at the Bush administration for its lack of leadership in the Israeli-Lebanon conflict.

"If I was president, this wouldn't have happened," said Kerry during a noon stop at Honest John's bar and grill in Detroit's Cass Corridor.

How could America be so selfish? If only Ohio had voted Democrat the age-old problems of the Middle-East would be solved by now! What were they thinking?

UPDATE: It could be worse: they could have elected a man who apparently doesn't even exist...
