It'd almost be tragic if it weren't so funny...

Well, if this isn't the comment to make you splatter your half-eaten Corn Flakes across the breakfast table.

Lackey Downer on Santoro:

Think about him as a human being.




(This is me still pissing myself.)

Not sure which of youse had the displeasure of catching the Mad Monk's odious rant against Krudd in last week's Smuh. I won't dignify it with a link but here's one lowlight from his piece doubting Krudd's account of his own father's death:
The problem with his story is that it now sounds too self-serving to be true...

It was a quip - indeed, an entire article - even Lib colleagues acknowledged as nauseatingly offensive, indicative of a desperate government with absolutely no new ideas left and nothing else to do than attempt to offload the coat of shit that has steadily encased it over the years.

The day this government thinks in terms of humanity will be the day...well, the day will never come, so it's not an issue. Imploring Labor to think of its own as human beings is just ... hey, you saw the ellipses. I'm speechless.

In other news: Not a bad piece by Tanya Plibersek about the Libs' track record on same-sex couples.

Like her I question Malcolm Turnbull's alleged queer-friendliness, and she's right about his redistributed seat now taking in the queer ghetto suburbs on the harbour side of William/New South Head roads. He'll really have to show some form on law reform soon or he'll be stranded when confronted by angry fag Wentworth voters - who may just happen to look a bit like me - waving their brollies in his face demanding why we still have next to fuck-all to show for nearly 12 years of his government. The whole "he's working behind the scenes, we have to do this softly-softly" defence stopped washing after Warren Entsch's failure last year.

So glad you posted about this.

We heard it this morning and were gobsmacked.

Does he really believe what he is saying?

This isn't simple spin its the world's greatest delusional whirlpool.

The hypocrisy of the ALP is breathtaking:

"While Labor does not support changing the Marriage Act to allow same-sex marriage, there are strong practical and philosophical reasons to have a nationally consistent system that will allow same-sex couples the legal rights and responsibilities that go with a committed loving relationship."

Equal but not equal.

I agree, anon. However, hypocritical Labor is still far and away the lesser of the two evils, assuming they stay true to their word and do away with the bulk of discriminatory federal laws in their first term.

Personally, I will be very disappointed if they opt for a federal registration scheme and not a UK-style civil partnership option.

I was almost lost for words listening to Downer but fortunately blasphemy came to my tongue.
