What kind of a world do we live in where John Howard can be winning a poll as the “worst abuser of democracy” over Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by a factor of 7:1?
I have no brief for Howard, who is extremely bad news and bears considerable responsibility for the riots currently going on in his country. But come on!
It is desperately sad that the Left has degenerated into two factions: one that thinks that Tony Blair is as bad as Hitler and the other that thinks that George Bush is the Second Coming. Anyone who fits anywhere between the two stools is dismissed as that worst of all possible worlds, a liberal.
Socialism has never been more irrelevant than it is now.
