FORMER Australian prime minister and Bush mate John Howard is the reason Barack Obama and his family have had to bunk out in a hotel ahead of the president-elect’s inauguration later this month.
Yep, normally it would be Barack and Co. staying at the official White House guest house next week but not this time round.
For our non-Aussie readers, John Howard is staying there so he can pick up the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
I wonder if KRudd will get one too someday.
Speaking of our little foul-mouthed 24/7 dynamo, the man has been half right lately. No prizes for guessing which half though.
KEVIN Rudd has defended Israel’s right to self-defence, but called for diplomatic efforts to bring about an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.
And the Left are having kittens over it!
From Tim’s YouTube link. Olbermann and Carlson get ballsy… my take.
The Inaugural Balls? Balls here. Balls there? And Olbermann is barred up?
Two people. Possibly six. One hundred and nineteen rooms. Bit squeezy.
Carlson sounds like it’s been a while for her.
…”at meetup.org where you supposed to be having balls on your own…”
Olberman the swinger: “…neighbourhood balls…”
Carlson takes the bait.
“…there’s ten of them here…”
“…the Inaugural Committee is trying to tamp down some of the excesses of balls past…”
…”the best ball they’re doing is the Commander in Chief’s ball…”
“…which is open for free…”
“… and then young people get a cut-rate ball…”
“…(unintelligible) who is going to perform?…”
“…the problem with these balls is Keith, that I went to the two Clinton balls…”
