    "Dear Crikey,

    Here's an interesting George W. Bush quote (aren't they all) at the end of this article in Haaretz (the Israeli daily).


    Bush is talking to Palastinian PM Mahmoud Abbas, and, according to Abbas, he says "God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them."

    There's not much to say after that. A bit of eye rolling maybe. I wouldn't be surprised if Tony Blair had similar visitations. But John Howard? The ghost of Bob Menzies, maybe.
