Isolationist policy going just a bit too far

27 October 2004

George W Bush’s official site now blocks off all traffic from outside the US.

Why? The bandwidth costs can’t be that bad, can they – after all, the Republicans raised $330 million for this election. And surely there should be selective – no access to France, Germany or Spain or any of old Europe, while those of us in the UK, or Japan (oh, and Poland – I forgot Poland) who happen to be part of the Coalition of the Willing, should be able to bask in Dubya’s internet glory.

I am in Poland (Cracov, in fact) reading this. I had forgotten that fact until now. Thank you for reminding me.
