Australia’s Howard is out

Good frackin’ riddance. That guy is incredibly racist. Everything I saw come out of his government was Bush-lite and/or neoliberalism 101. Plus, he’d been PM for 10 or 11 years or so (way too long, in other words).

I hope Rudd is better, especially on Aboriginal issues…. but I doubt he will be. My experience with Australia is that there’s still an incredible amount of blatant, conscious racism there.

Hopefully it was just the people I met.

Update: Howard lost in both ways – he lost his seat and his party lost. Yay!
