Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Hey, Australian PM John Howard is on TV right now, having a press conference with Rumsfeld, in Washington. I didn't even know he was in the country.

He's wearing his coffee-spill-proof tie (it's already coffee-colored).

Don't be alarmed by that pained, worried expression, folks. He looks like that all the time. He looks as if Prime Ministering does not agree with him.

Now there's a fellow who needs to be invited to Crawford, rather than some Saudi prince. I'll bet he'd even enjoy it.

No one's asking him any questions. Ah, Rumsfeld is calling for questions for him. Some Australian reporter is asking him about making Australia a greater terrorist target. Ha! Howard's hitting him over the head with East Timor.

Man, Howard has to be one of the least inspiring speakers on the planet.

"We're saying to the Arab states, 'Mate, the game is up.'" Roight, mate!

Hmmm...Rumsfeld's cutting him off. Wonder if that reference to "Arab states" was a bit too blunt. Too blunt for Rummy?
