Yes.
Everything's going to be fine.

So Let All Tyrants Perish!

From The Age:
Saddam Hussein is dead, hanged at dawn in Baghdad for crimes against humanity.
And there was much rejoicing.

The Law Of Unintended Consequences

See it in action:
In an extraordinary end to vote counting from the November 25 state election, the Victorian Electoral Commission yesterday awarded two seats to the DLP, which will share the balance of power with the left-wing Greens and the conservative Nationals.

The DLP — which has not won a seat in Victoria's Parliament since 1955 — received only about 2 per cent of the statewide primary vote. Yesterday's shock outcome was the result of favourable preference flows from almost every other party, including Labor and the Liberals.

In the 2004 Australian federal election, control of the Senate depended on the distribution of preferences from the Queensland Fishing Party, a turn of events that I think summed up Australian politics perfectly.
