I actually enjoy Tony Abbott, he is a character, even if he is one that is so intense. I particularly like watching him being interviewed by Kerry O'Brien. What he says to Kerry isn't that interesting, the fun is in trying to work out what he is thinking. Actually, no it isn't, he's usually thinking the same thing.

Treasury Debate, or what ever it was called.

Look forward to seeing the ratings for that one. Why can't we have a bit of verbal biffo, some colour, some fun for the audience. Why didn't I just go outside, it was a beautiful day.

Peter Costello Cactus

Guess it was fun to see the kid ask the question about the cactus, at least, his parents would have enjoyed it, and the grand parents when they see the video, and the next door neighbours. Aren't you glad you don't live next to them.

God got his, or her, first mention as well. Nice.

John Howard takes a bath.

OK, a bit of silliness to start the week. Also, I'm allowed to make bald jokes, being a paid up member.

Howard is taking a bath in more ways than one at the moment, and it must be frustrating, given he seemed invincible such a short time ago. Sadly, everyone, bar John Howard, can see pretty clearly why he is on the nose right now.

Equally sadly, I think, we don't really believe that things will change under Labor, however, at least there is the potential for change and many believe that is worth trying.

Haven't done enough Kevin Rudd cartoons, I just can't find angles to take with him at the moment. It is always the one that is getting the pie in the face that is the funny one.

John Howard

The man is extraordinary. With a straight face he has tried to scare us about union bosses running the country, illegal immigrants becoming terrorists etc.

Then, with a equally straight face complains about Labor running scare campaigns.

How do you react, is it just fun, or do you get just a tiny bit grumpy because he clearly thinks we are stupid?

Once again, I don't think the other side is any better. That being demonstrated by the way their campaign has been conducted.

Inflation and interest rates.

OK, they haven't gone up yet, but everyone thinks they are, and of course that's the final nail in the coffin, or of course the straw.

Unions and Nuclear Power

Forget economics, hospitals, education and terrorism. The real battle is going to be the respective scare campaigns. Nuclear Power Plants in your backyard, or Union Bosses running the country, which is the scariest?

I must admit I don't understand the Libs. Using my peasant logic, I would assume that every time you mention unions you remind everyone about Work Choices. That, has to be bad for them.

Political debates, they are a bit like car racing, not very exciting, until someone loses control. Not sure who won, not sure anyone really cares.

Howard's History

So, he's given us the "definitive" history to be taught in our schools. Perhaps it should have theme music, "Happy Days" for example.

I'm on holidays for a week, no doubt I will come back to a declared election. Look forward to it.

The Death Penalty

If you want anymore proof that they will do, and say, anything to get elected then this debate provides it. Both parties, and leaders, oppose the death penalty. However, both know, plenty of voters, in talk back land, believe in the death penalty, particularly in cases where it applies to terrorists like the Bali Bombers. As such, an issue of principle is navigated around, Rudd, or forgotten, Howard, in the pursuit of votes. Personally I will vote for the first one that stands on principle.

Howard puts his hand in "his" pocket.

Wouldn't it be nice to live in a place where the sun always shines, birds always sing, and the electorate is not committed.

I am going to organise a petition in my local area to confirm that we are in fact a swinging electorate. And, here is our list of demands.

The Flu


No posts the last few days, I have the flu and I feel utterly miserable. Will post again soon.
