Craven Toadies

Bush is visiting Australia next week, and both PM John Howard and leader of the opposition Simon Crean are demanding that he be given a standing ovation when he addresses the Australian Parliament. Crean is desperately trying to strongarm his antiwar MPs into line, lest they cause a scene and give offence to the planetarch by failing to praise him loudly enough.

What a bunch of craven toadies. If they're so desperate to show their subjugation, why don't they just prostrate themselves and be done with it?
