Time To Boycott Vegemite?

Via Americablog I read this morning that John Howard, the nutbag PM of Australia, has weighed in on the US Presidential elections, basically claiming that Osama wants Barack Obama to win. Obama's spokesperson had the right response.

"The United States has sacrificed more than 3,000 brave young men and women and $400 billion, only to find ourselves mired in the middle of a sectarian civil war," he said. "Even Republicans ... know that more of the same is only going to attract more terrorists to Iraq and make our country less safe."

Gibbs went on to say that Howard wasn't in a position to be overly critical.

"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," he said. "It's easy to talk tough when it's not your country or your troops making the sacrifices."
