After faithfully supporting John Howard's party line, and being a good little dog and telling everyone how evil Iraq is, Richard Butler was given a nice reward: he was made governor of Tasmania, a job involving very little work and over AU$370,000 per year. In the face of an obvious lack of evidence for all his support of Bush's and Howard's assertions, he remained unwavering, steadfastly spewing the same lies again and again. So, for the past ten months he has been enjoying that cushy job in Tasmania. Last night he was forced to resign. Why? Several of his top people simply quit, and the rest simply refused to go in to work. Good riddance. http://www.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,4057,10391656%5E421,00.html PS: For those who don't know, being made a governor is traditionally a reward for special buddies of the Prime Minister. You suck up just right, and you get the easy job with the big dollars. The last governor forced to quit was a filthy old pedophile.
