with the US presidential elections being so close now I doubt anybody in the world who’s the least bit interested in global politics is without an opinion as for who would be the better US president: Barack ‘Osama’ Obama or John ‘Freedom Fries’ McCain?
Austrian-born Californian Senator Schwarzenegger just held his first and only speech promoting Sen. McCain claiming that socialism had “driven him out of Europe”.Frankly, when hearing this I was glad the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium in Graz has already been renamed. Sometimes one can be tempted to believe that only absolute hardliners and nudnikim get out of Austria and become politicians in other countries …
Talking of which the nice little fellows of al–quaida of course have their preferences in an US American president too. A joice, by the by, I can absolutely understand. And no, it’s not the man who’s second name is a Muslim one but rather the one who keeps telling us he’s going to hunt down “terorrists” like Capt. Ahab his whale:
Al-Qaida supporters suggested in a Web site message this week they would welcome a pre-election terror attack on the U.S. as a way to usher in a McCain presidency.
if al–Qaida wants to exhaust the United States militarily and economically, “impetuous” Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain is the better choice because he is more likely to continue the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. [source, thanks Shahrazad]
As far as my clique is concerned most people don’t think that it will make much of a difference whether Obama or McCain actually is elected anyway. In the end in 2000 it wasn’t Bush who was elected either …
But well, we’ll see.
