The traveling Mark show 

In a move that will come as a surprise to many, the Labor leader of the Opposition, Mark "Werriwa Appeaser" Latham wants to meet Bill Clinton on his June trip to the US.

Stuck for inspiration for his next speech? Or maybe just wants to seek the former President's advice on how to prevaricate for eight years about the terrorist threat, until it's too late.

Perhaps Latham should also try to meet with the Spanish PM Zapatero, who's increasingly providing inspiration for our leader of the opposition:

"The Labor leader yesterday hardened his stance on Australian forces in Iraq, saying he would reject any request from the United Nations for Australia to join a peacekeeping force."

But I was under the impression that the US was bad, and UN was good. Apparently not.

Said Latham: "Our military capacities are over-extended around the globe, something the Government has acknowledged...We've got to make choices about where to best deploy."

Like to best deploy the troops where exactly, Mark? Townsville Barracks?
