Australia meddles in US politics

John Howard, the bastardly Prime Minister of Australia, said that if he were Al-Qaeda, he would wish for Barack Obama to be elected the next President of the United States, because his withdrawal plan will encourage them.

Obama says he's flattered to be criticized by a W puppet.

This isn't the first time Australia has been caught meddling in US politics; Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation has been at it for a long time.

Despite this, I don't see any efforts to boycott Australia around me - because progressives realize that individual Australians are still good people, and conservatives love that rare ally. But if France can be boycotted just for not participating in the Iraq War, there is plenty of justification for boycotting Australia.
