Votes are being cast across the country today to decide which party gets into power down here in Australia. The leader of that party become the Australian Prime Minister. Basically our choices are Little Johnny Howard or Little Johnny Howard minus 20 years. Results coming in as the polls close across the nation at 6pm (about 10 minutes ago) - should have a result later tonight. Personally I voted for the member of the Liberal (read: conservative) Party because he lost an eye in an accident with some pool chlorine and was sporting an eye patch. So I voted for the pirate. Then, when I was driving up here on Friday I found he's got a fake eye and isn't a pirate anymore. Bastard! EDIT: Looks like our PM has actually been voted out of his seat. He can't be PM if he doesn't have a seat.
