Keating - like Hawke before him - was a rare politician to combine policy with soundbytes.

A fucking drover's dog, as they might say, would've wiped the floor with Latham. Well, maybe not when Latho first got the leadership, which is the scary thing, but once we got to know him and his propensity for insanity, yes.

You only get one Latham in a lifetime.

One, we're starting to learn all too well, is more than enough.

I miss 2011, when Latho was this slightly awkward but generally amusing joke. Now mention his name to an ALP hack and they'll vanish in a puff of smoke.

Didn't he accost Julia Gillard on campaign during his brief sojourn as a channel 9 'reporter'?

Oh god that's a bad memory. Perhaps the first major sign of the lunacy to come.

I think he was working for 60 Minutes. Shame they didn't send him to Beirut rather than Tara Brown. Could've left him there without bail, though that'd be mean to the people of Lebanon. They've been through a lot. They don't deserve Latho.

Bob Hawke briefly worked for 60 Minutes too. Great, great pedigree, that show.

I can only assume that ol' Bob's big scoop was a story on bums who sacked their employees after the America's Cup.

Is AMERICA located somewhere around the corner from Murica?

Because I think both are secretly under the control of STRAYA and its prime minister, an aggressive stoner koala wearing a big boot.

AMERICA is actually just an idea. 'murka (as it is more properly spelled) is the country.
