    Ya know, kind of hard to figure out what is 'real' and what is satire:

    Steyn's a conservative polemicist so if you read him understanding he is quite right wing then you can will get a better picture of what he's on about.

    Ya know Kath, I didn't know Australian's were liberal. I thought they were mostly conservative.

    I wonder if Diuretic is a Shiela or a Bloke.

    Ouch! There I was thinking I was doing the right thing and *boom* I get king hit by sarcasm :eek2:

    PR - Australians are - politically speaking - pragmatic. We don't get all twisted up about political labels. We're more likely to start a fight over football than politics.

    Bloke.

    Great find, Kathianne! I thought enough of it to change my sig.

    "Posse Como Estas" - roflmao!

    And, as for John McCain, I'm seriously beginning to think "Manchurian Candidate". I trust this guy about as far as I can throw him.

    He is if you happen to agree with him.

    He's just another right-wing columnist, not as clever or as good with prose as Hitchens, that's all.

    I disagree, he's way more aware of politics and the populace than most columnist of the right or left. He's also funny as hell.
