Australian Senator Ross Lightfoot is in a bit of trouble for running around Iraq with an AK-47 and smuggling cash to the Kurds.
Lightfoot represents Western Australia, which is the Australian equivalent of Texas, but it's still nice to see that the cowboy spirit is alive and well even in boring places like Canberra.
Can you picture Ted Kennedy running around Iraq with an AK-47? OK, maybe sitting at a bar in the Green Zone with an AK-47? Nah, still doesn't work.
UPDATE: Lorie Byrd reminds us that we do have a lethal weapon in the Senate.
