Leigh Sales is a certified genius.

Nick Minchin has said that Abbott is only pushing the Paid parental Leave scheme because he knows he will never get it through the senate. Push it through to get the rich vote during the campaign, and then never have to fund it. Ever.

Rudd has not been strong enough. He needs to get out there and say "this policy is genetic cleansing. It provides direct disincentive for poor people to reproduce. Tony, why don't you think poor people have as much right to have children as rich people?"

Personally I think Rudd should have punched Abbott in the face during the first debate, and gone on from there.

I also think that the TV/web advertising could have stood to put out a piece along the lines of:

Clip of Paul Keating from that 2010 interview where he calls Tony Abbott an intellectual nobody, and then cut to about twenty seconds of that time when Abbott just stood there nodding twitchily in silence like some kind of psycho.

I know, I know, only the true believers have any time for ol' Paul, but it couldn't do any more harm than the actual campaign they've run.

Seriously, Rudd fucking white-anted the ALP to run this insipid campaign? Tone should be one of the easiest politicians to demolish. I just watched again the clip from that interview when he couldn't answer a question and just stared in silence. The man's a psychopath.

I don't see how Rudd is that much more of a friend to the poor than Abbott is, a little, sure, but not by miles.

Sure, he's not a socialist, but he does have some decent policies to support the poor, most of which focus on equality of access rather than throwing cash at them.

Tony rang me. On my phone (hey, I run a home office, plus I'm an old codger). Tony can get fucked.

He rang me earlier today, didn't give him much of a chance to say anything. Kev was a few hours late.

I went to the AEC today to vote, and as I approached the excited sign wavers, I realised for the first time that I didn't know who the ALP candidate was for my seat. Literally, I didn't know. It wasn't a mental blank; I hadn't seen one single bit of letterbox propaganda in all this campaign. I get bullshit from Russell Matheson all the time, but not a peep from ALP. I had to ask the nice old Labor lady to help me, even though I was casting my vote in Lindsay Territory and hiding from the inbred Fiona Scott groupies.

Have the escapades of Fiona made news in your parts? She is truly the Sarah Palin of Abbott's stable crew.

I'm so disappointed overall, though. Abbott has been the whiniest bitch this whole time, and Rudd has been a limp noodle. Lacklustre and beige all over, except when Murdoch has published yet another tabloid headline. The blackout has been a nice change after all the circus. I sincerely hope this helps bite Abbott by getting the swing votes away from him. According to Liberal friends, this is absolutely acceptable to withhold costings until 2 days before and once the blackout is in place. I just cannot see value in such a move, and cannot help be suspicious. Rudd's comatose enthusiasm has caused me to look at the other parties more than ever before, but there was just the sound of crickets when I looked at the LNP. Like when he was interviewed and gave that 30 seconds of silence. I love a party that just will not answer at all, literally.

Yes, Ms Scott is the one who likened refugees to queues at the shops yes?

Not merely likened, but that she attributed the traffic congestion in penrith to asylum seekers. You only need to look at our main freeway to see the problems these boats are causing.. If you happen to drive your boat down the M4, anyway.
