The "terrorisists" really do want Bush...

or at least one of the founding members of the "Axis of Evil."

He has accused the country of being part of the axis of evil, a harbourer of al-Qaida terrorists and a nuclear menace threatening global stability.
So President George Bush may view with suspicion a ringing election endorsement from one of America's current enemies. Iran has thrown its weight behind the Bush campaign, saying it is unimpressed with John Kerry.

"We haven't seen anything good from the Democrats," said Hasan Rowhani, head of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, on state television. "We do not desire to see Democrats take over ... We should not forget that most sanctions and economic pressures were imposed on Iran during the time of [former Democratic president Bill] Clinton. And we should not forget that during Bush's era - despite his hardline and baseless rhetoric against Iran - he didn't take, in practical terms, any dangerous action against Iran."

And in the "with friends like these, who needs enemies" department, from the same article, we also have...

Mr Bush gained another foreign endorsement yesterday when Silvio Berlusconi, Italy's prime minister, said he "hoped and believed" the US president would win. But his prophecy may not be that reassuring. Mr Berlusconi confidently predicted victory for Spain's José Maria Aznar in March, only for the incumbent to lose.

We can only hope the reverse-mojo of Mr. Berlusconi works again...
