WHO HE AIN'T
A BBC TV News commentator on Obama's arrival in Riyadh:
"One of his greatest assets is that he's not George Bush."The guy's right; so far Obama is nothing special.
Update: Another less than flattering Bush reference, this time from Luke Buckmaster's review of Terminator Salvation:
Director McG, whose name and level of cinematic comprehension resembles that of a burger, applies his ham-n-cheese fist to the Terminator franchise and cooks up a hardcore action sci-fi: hardcore in the sense that this agonisingly loud movie generates more gunfire than a pro-George Bush parade in Israel and a running time with at least as many explosions as there are minutes.Insanity seems to be the main requirement for a Crikey writing gig.
