The World Hates Dumbyass Almost as Much as I Do

Tra la la.

From the report:
In 30 out of 35 countries polled, from all regions of the world, a majority or plurality would prefer to see John Kerry win the US presidential election—especially traditional US allies.
On average, Kerry was favored by more than a two-to-one margin—46% to 20% (weighted for variations in population, the ratio was not significantly different).

Two to one! Not that I am the least bit surprised. Now I fully expect that the Repugnicans and the whole of media will apologize to John Kerry for their deriding him for (yes, I'll admit it was clumsy) announcing that world leaders had told him that they want B*sh out.

Holding breath....

Gasp! Choke! Sputter!

So what, you may ask. Who cares what, like, most of the world thinks? Well, it seems that 70% of Americans do. And over 50% already assume that attitudes toward the US are negative. This does not bode well for BushCo. Well, it wouldn't in a democracy with a free press, because this information would actually get to the people and have the potential for impact. I could see the media parlaying this into a couple days of, "Well, what do you say to this, Prick Cheney? The world hates us. Hasn't your foreign policy failed?" I will check the Gaggle tomorrow to see how Scotty prevaricates. At the very least it will be amusing.
