Aussies are off their nuts!

April 5, 2008

In the mixing crowd of leaders at the NATO summit, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (who had just been to Washington to visit with President Bush the day before) was momentarilly alone and met eyes with President Bush.

Well? What usually happens when two people not busy talking to anyone in a mixing crowd make eye contact like that? They make some sign of acknowledgement and come together for a chat.

No big deal, right? But all Australia goes crazy, because Rudd waved by raising his hand to his forehead in a kind of  salute.

OH!!! HOW HORRIBLE!!!! He might as well have cried “Achtung! and snapped to attention with his arm thrust up in a Nazi salute and cry of “Heil Hitler!”

Listen to the what these Australian lunatics are making of it:

Opposition Leader Brendan Nelson said the salute was inappropiate and Greens leader Bob Brown said it belittled Australia.

“I think it’s conduct unbecoming of an Australian prime minister,” Dr Nelson said.

“Mr Rudd appears to conduct himself in one manner when he thinks the television is on him and in another when it is not.

“Australia is a confident, outward-looking country after more than 10 years of strong foreign policy development and we need a strong prime minister to represent our very best interests throughout the world.”

[…]

“There is a streak of John Howard’s deputy sheriff in Kevin Rudd’s slip-up,” he said.

“It takes seasoned maturity to ensure Australia is never second-rated in the international arena and Mr Rudd is not there yet.

“We are not the 51st state of the USA and Mr Rudd’s salute carried a subservient connotation many Australians won’t like.”

These clowns don’t know a joke when they tell it. Someone warn them that the sense of humor is the first thing to go with their sanity.

I have a great idea (Are you listening, George?). Don’t fight it: anti-Americanism is too self-aggrandizing for the narcissistic Left to live without. Instead, let’s make it America’s secret weapon.

Pimp these clowns throughout the world. Get them to really go for that bait. Drive that stampede the rest of the way off that cliff.

We Americans could use a good laugh like this periodically.
