Above, in the photograph, you see them marching on a blood-coloured carpet, both in perfect unison: one the deranged Commander in Chief of all the Galaxies; the other a nobody, a jumped-up solicitor, a would-be if he could-be.
I saw John on the television just minutes ago. He was gabbling about the importance of the Australian-American alliance. He repeats it over and over as if eventually word might get back to the White House and someone, perhaps even a clerk, might remember his name.
John is running APEC you see, a gab-fest for the pretentious, a grand photo-op, a pointless junket for 21 world leaders which concludes with a ridiculous fancy dress parade. Somehow, it's a fitting end!
Our Prime Minister thinks that the Summit will suddenly make him more important, might increase his chances of winning the coming election especially if there's violence: from protesters, from terrorists, doesn't much matter. John will use all violent incidents, even if his stormtroopers provoke them, to justify his violent participation in Iraq and Afghanistan and perhaps soon in Iran. "I'm humbly serving you and protecting you from terrorists,' he'll say and his cunning little eyes will glint.
Poor John. George uses him cruelly like George uses anyone who is gullible or stupid enough to unconditionally support him and American hegemony. John loves it!
I was proud of my country. Once!
