What is the Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, doing criticizing an American presidential candidate (Barack Obama) over an issue he knows nothing about?
CANBERRA, Australia (CNN) — Australian Prime Minister John Howard on Monday stood by his comments from a day earlier when he said that terrorists should pray that Sen. Barack Obama and the Democrats take over the White House in 2008. On Sunday, Howard told an Australian TV program that, “If I were running al Qaeda in Iraq, I would put a circle around March 2008, and pray, as many times as possible, for a victory not only for Obama, but also for the Democrats.”

Do us a favor, John: when we want your opinion, about anything other than The Wiggles, we’ll give it to you. Meanwhile, go back to your vegemite sandwiches and stay out of American politics.
