Crikey, John Howard's Gone Google!

Now YouTube becomes an official tool of democracy. Google has just announced the launch of a Google Australia election website, "so that Australian voters can have an intimate look at the parties, candidates and election issues, all in one Google location. These services, spanning Search, Maps, News, video, Earth, Trends, and iGoogle, enable voters to organise, find and share Australian election information more easily than ever."

They've even got a Picasa Web Album "to showcase all the elements, and we're pleased to offer these world-first tools that were developed in our Australian office. Here's hoping Australians will find them useful and even fun. It's our view that democracy on the web works -- and the web can work for democracy."

Yeah, whatever. Here's my good buddy Kangaroo John himself. Can anybody out there translate the Strine?
You know, I beat Howard to the punch. I'm the first fake world leader with his own blog.
