Democracy is dying, fascism is on the rise, the PM is laughing maniacally as he cruelly excludes War Widows from ceremonies at the Australian War Memorial – just to be a bastard -and guess what? The Newspoll punters have just given the Evil One his biggest single poll boost since 1996. Odd or what?
Equally odd is the apparent lack of respect for Bob and Kerry’s ‘Political Morality Incarnate’ Double Spin Acrobatic act. It’s dropped two whole points in the estimation of voters. If unrestricted SMS voting was part of Newspoll’s methodology, Paulini would probably be rating well ahead of them as Preferred Senate Idol.
It’s all a bit bewildering, isn’t it?
