Bush praises PM's wise counsel
United States President George W Bush has praised Australian Prime Minister John Howard, in his address to the Republican National Convention in New York.

I don't know what's funnier. That we're so desperate to be internationally recognised* that Bush giving Howard a passing mention constitutes major news over here, or that Bush actually remembered Howard's name.

Or that Bush spoke a whole sentence without fucking it up.

* for more evidence of this, try and find any mainstream Australian interview with an overseas personality, that doesn't feature the interviewer asking them what they think of Australia
