Ozneyland gets a new American ambassador

After a two year wait George W finally got around to deciding which one of his old drinking buddies would become the US's new ambassador to Australia. The new ambassador, Robert McCallum, has kindly allowed Australians to disagree with American policy,

I want to get out across the entire continent of Australia to say that it's OK to disagree with this US policy or that US policy but still be pro-American because we have so much in common.

They didn't report it in the newspapers, but I'm pretty sure that when a journalist asked him about his foreign policy experience he replied by chugging a beer.
