There’s No Nice Way To Say This

Tim Bray, what a Canadian computer programmer thinks about that American election:

The rest of the world is largely convinced that George W. Bush is an ignorant malevolent jackass. Here’s a story by way of highlight; we recently had an old friend over for dinner, and we were talking over the US election and he burst out “Americans are decent people and I like them, but if they go and re-elect that #*!^!% #$*!%* &*@!$%!, there’s just no excuse and the #!%$* with ’em!” I would say that there are a lot of people, not just in Canada, who feel about the same.

Indeed, I keep hearing the same all over the place in Europe.
