SO George W Bush said sh%t, watch his ratings increase next week....
Winston upset the NZ media in DC, but he did manage to get meetings with the guy that may well be the next President Senator John McCain, and Secretary of State Dr Rice. I'd say Winston did a good job. He is a smart guy, and I am sure he impressed them all. Certainly good to have Senator McCain pushing for a free trade agreement, and Dr Rice having the time to even talk to Winston at this time.
Isreal are dropping bombs in Lebanon, will this lead to WWIII? I certainly hope not. Iran should be quiet and stay away. I would like to think that the issue will be sorted promptly, with the release of the Israeli hostages...... Something really needs to be done in that part of the world.... It seems that it will take generations for the hatred to disband..... Why can't we all just get along?
The weather is very very hot in the USA at the moment.... I wonder if there will be blackouts (like in Auckland) due to excessive power use for A/C? Maybe it is a good time to build more nuclear power plants?
Has anyone heard about Bin Laden lately? Will Saddam finally stop his hunger strike?
What is the deal with Don Brash's approval ratings? Is ACT planning a massive comeback? Will it work?
