    OH FUN. Of course the leader of the socialist LABOR party is going to back another socialist.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Obama will soon be wishing that he had never received this endorsement.
    In a breach of internationally accepted convention, Gordon has openly backed Obama in an article under his byline. The story got picked up last night by Drudge and followed up by the news wires.

    The McCain campaign has been in contact with the British Embassy in Washington to "express concern". William Hague has queried the wisdom of the PM taking sides. Downing Street is desperately back-pedalling, claiming the article was written by a junior underling.



    This is good news, get your money on McCain. Barring an act of god, the curse of Jonah Brown means Obama is now doomed...



    UPDATE : Team McCain are trying to keep a straight face - see the campaign's piss-take "The Coveted Gordon Brown Endorsement". Loser backs loser...

    To make things worse (or better, if as I, you loathe Broon), Obama recently dropped the policy for which Brown sings his praises. See the Coffee House and McCain sites for further details.

    The curse of McMental is far more effective than to cause Obama to lose a mere election
    This is the entity that causes floods,pestilence and airliners to drop out of the sky. Nope,Obama is a dead man walking.

    Al Gore gets behind Labor

    HIGH-profile environmentalist Al Gore has effectively called on Australians to vote for Labor's Kevin Rudd as Prime Minister John Howard unveiled a new national scheme for clean energy production.

    The former US vice-president and presidential candidate praised Mr Rudd's climate credentials, saying they would "weigh very heavily on my vote if I did have the privilege of voting here".

    As Mr Gore issued his glowing endorsement at a press call alongside Mr Rudd in Melbourne yesterday, Mr Howard announced his own plan for an Australia-wide goal for low emission energy by 2020.

    Legislation would require that at least 30,000 gigawatt hours each year came from renewable sources such as solar and wind as well as clean coal technology.

    Mr Howard said the new Clean Energy Target would merge state programs into a single national effort and be more effective.

    "It will reduce the red tape from the current multitude of schemes, and ensure low-emission technologies are developed in the lowest cost locations, without being restricted by state and territory boundaries," Mr Howard said.
    In a breach of internationally accepted convention, Gordon has openly backed Obama in an article under his byline. The story got picked up last night by Drudge and followed up by the news wires.

    Didn't see anyone kicking up a stink back then.

    Oh btw..Rudd got elected.

    Thanks a HEAP.

    Al Gore was NOT an elected government official at the time of his endorsement. A far cry from a sitting PM of a major ally.

    And BTW, I do not absolve Gore in any case. None of his damn business who Australians choose in their elections. So feel free to take him and punish as seen fit :D

    Apparently the article was written with his name and wasn't him, although he is an idiot for letting people use his name.

    The chief reaction from ordinary US voters on politics websites was one of derision, with many pointing out that the endorsement of a prime minister as troubled as Mr Brown was of dubious value.
    There was also a widespread amount of annoyance not confined to Republicans - that a foreign political leader should be seeking to influence the US election.
    Too bad Obama can't count on the "world's" votes. He'll just have to settle for the votes of ordinary, Bible grabbing, gun toting Americans.

    He already has the approval of the folks in Iran. :D

    Sir - Gore has never been president.
