John Key, You Rock

I think we (New Zealand) officially have the world's coolest leader. By 'cool', I don't mean trendy or anything like that - I mean self-deprecating, sharp, and with a great sense of humour.

John Key apparently caused a global stir when he called Liz Hurley "hot" during an interview on sports radio. He responded to the criticism by saying he thought that Liz would be thrilled with his comments. I personally think anyone offended by that is too PC for their own good.

Then I just saw the item at the end of the news. The uniform for volunteers at the Rugby World Cup was unveiled, and they put the actual volunteers on the catwalk to display the bright tea and lavender outfits.Then who struts out onto the catwalk than the Right Honourable Prime Minister himself, introduced only as "John from Parnell", his hands flared in a super-camp gesture.

As if that wasn't hilarious enough, he gave a speech and finished up with "Now, do I look hot?" I don't think I've laughed so much with a politician in all my life. He seems to do the actual leading the country pretty well too.

Thanks to NZ Herald and TVNZ for the stories.
