Sounds like this came straight from Slogans for Bogans.

I cannot fathom the 5 points bullshit this election has been reduced to. I cannot believe anyone will be voting for the Liberals. I cannot believe that we have the choice of Abbott or Rudd. I'm pissed off so utterly that it's giving me an injury. I gritted my teeth through Rudd's elegant return, but the boat people angle has killed me. Labor only get my vote because of Gonski. Fuck the rest of it.

fuck, cobbo, I met a dude tonight who said his brother was a famous(ish) Australian rugby player... Now I have to remember his name.... He said at some point he lost a couple sponsors because someone stole his phone while on vacation and took a couple risque cock and bum picks. Ring a bell?

Not off the top of my head unfortunately... Rugby players doing stupid things are pretty common so it could be any one of a number of people

"This is a great country," leaders concur.

"What did we do when Uncle harry was here?" Abbott frowns thoughtfully, dons rubber glove.

Missed the debate tonight, but I'm guessing it was frustrating viewing.

Yeah I'm a leftie but I'd much rather watch Gillard vs Turnbull.

The best/worst part was when Tone blatantly avoided answering the marriage equality question, instead darting off into another mediocre response.

At least we don't have National Conventions.

Haha, yeah, or the part where he couldn't answer where the 70 billion was going to come from!

... Or badgerys Creek! That bloody airport. Since when the hell did this stop being a NSW issue and move to federal? Haha, no wonder he had no idea.

... Or the GST review! He's such a prankster! Scrapping the mining and carbon taxes in favour of taxing fresh food!

... But seriously, he's going to fix us up some roads (does anyone remember them? I know I don't give a god damn, so I tuned out like a chump) And drown the brown people.

Have we all forgotten Tampa? I wonder if Johnny has, or if the faces keep him awake at night?

And he somehow won the debate? How?

I think Laurie Oakes said he thought Abbott won because he had more 'style.'

I meant to post this last night but the forum was down, so here it is now:

It's hard to have too big a victory in election debates now that they are such stage-managed, risk-averse events, and I suppose we all try to see the result we want to see, but I genuinely don't know how anybody could watch that debate and not come away thinking that Rudd had the best of it. Abbott's simply a rubbish public speaker with the charisma of a turnip, and struggles to sound sincere - Rudd, love him or hate him, can manufacture bulk loads of sincerity for any occasion. Abbott's simply excruciating.

This made me laugh perhaps more than it should've.

I'll try to find out the name of this guy. You can let me know if he's actually famous or not
