Roomatoid elephantasia

There’s something about my previous post, “Sickness endemic”, that in fact inflames my own sick, sick sickness.

For this malady, I propose the name roomatoid elephantasia — an anxiety about elephants, whether real or imagined, in claustrophobic rooms.

I think... yes, the elephant in this particular room is our Mr Howard’s obvious contempt for the Australian people.

This being manifest in the PM’s astonishingly arrogant assumption that the anti-US sentiment abroad among Australians is due to their “weariness” about a war that — as it so happens, Mr Howard — most of them didn’t want in the first place.

Brrrr... maybe it’ll pass.

Bugger, wrong thread.
And I haven't even had a drink yet!

Oh, Jarcob? I think very soon that the PM may be flattened by a herd of stampeding elephants! Lol..

Naomi Wolf has contracted it to:

"Can I just say something?" she says, almost in exasperation at the question. "I don't know how to make this any clearer. We are facing a genuine constitutional crisis in the United States, where the president has the power to declare any innocent US citizen an enemy combatant and lock him or her up in a 10-foot cell in solidarity confinement for three years. We are torturing people. We are torturing people!

"We are facing the situation where we have made it easy for the president of the United States to declare marital law. We are facing the situation where the White House has threatened to use the Espionage Act against journalists, against The New York Times.

"This is not rhetoric. We are in a major emergency."


Ooh dear. Roomatoid elephantasia is spreading...

Hmm, that's like a rogue elephant in a china shop.
