John Howard Lies

John Howard, the Prime Minister of Australia, lies. Given that he's a politician, that should come as no surprise. But www.johnhowardlies.com does an excellent job of cataloguing them in startling clarity.

It's interesting do draw comparisons between this campaign and those against Bush. (The unknown authors of this site -- which is registered to "ABC DEF" from "123 Fourfive St, Surfers Paradise, TAS 7003" -- compare themselves to moveon.org.) Unfortunately the equivalent anti-Bush sites (at least those top-rated on Google), www.bushlies.com and BushWatch.com don't make the point quite so clearly.

Incidentally, I don't really follow Australian politics any more, but I was alerted to this site after its opponents tried to suppress it. As Michael Moore discovered, there's nothing like oppression for getting publicity.

Tried to suppress it? Oh puh-leeze.

I suggest you visit the following site:

To understand why it is that a site run by a paid political PR executive, strongly linked to (and formerly employed by) the ALP, should not be considered a bipartisan, altruistic endeavour.

(Who tried to conceal his authorship, btw.)

This was the ALP doing precisely what Latham tearfully accused Howard of doing; creating a "dirt unit" to dig up useful trash on a political opponent.

To date, no evidence whatsoever has been presented indicating that the PM has ever so indulged.

Mr Latham, care of Tim Grau, has. And Mark, like his object of admiration, President Richard Nixon, got caught.

As for Michael Moore, I suggest that you educate yourself:

Because you're defending a deplorable human being.

Thanks Mike. Last time I tried reading the National Review my eyes nearly melted at the stupidity. So I thought I'd try your site. Wow, that blue-on-dark-gray color scheme is patently unreadable! Not, I suspect, a great loss for civilization. Keep up the bad UI!
