Freedom on the march!

It's a big day for laughably dysfunctional Third-World war-zones, as both Iraq and New Orleans choose new leaders. As an added bonus, there's an outside chance that at least one of them won't be a hopeless incompetent who covers his constant cock-ups with despicable ethnic hate-mongering.

Probably too much to hope for New Orleans, tho'.


Mayor Ray "Chocolate" Nagin, yesterday - the man who introduced the phrase "Thank Allah for Louisiana" into Arabic.

Would you rather have an incompetent or a crook, like France, or Italy?

Now I think about it, yes, perhaps the crook every time.

The po-faced venality of the republicodemocrans in the states is no fun, just annoying. A bit of balkanization would pep things up no end. Split the union up into competing bana republics. I want to see lots of gold epaulettes and saluting. These things need to be done with a bit of panache.

Incidentally, if you look up 'South American Dictators' on Wikipedia, the top result is this. I want one.

Looks like a sweet ride, Rob. Ford tried to fight back with the Kamikaze, but those weenies in Marketing renamed it the Pinto instead.

HaHa Ivan - you are the eternal optimist - unless there is a seismic change in history, the political cock-ups will continue. Competant politician is an oxymoron.

Hmmm. Speaking of competence, Blogger won't let me publish this morning for some reason. Just talk amongst yourselves for the time being...
