Paul Keating just called John Howard the little dessicated coconut and Peter Costello was all tip and no iceberg. Teeheehee.

Now don’t get me wrong, this grubby game of smear politics – that we’re living loud and true in NSW with an election in 3 weeks – is something that absolutely gives me the shits.

But really? Little John Howard – who is clearly absolutely reeling from the Rudd factor (and quite frankly, as a die-hard Labor girl, so am I , because I really thought he was an irritating little git, but has been quite impressive to say the least… or maybe that was simply because the vacuum he was filling had been so large and dark for so long he is coming across as shiny as a bauble from Tiffany’s) – and for the first time making major political mistakes (disregarding the plain, simple and obvious lying he’s committed over the last long and lonely decade) that seem to have some supernatural spotlight highlighting them (seriously, isn’t it politics101 to not go in too hard on the integrity of other politicians – I mean, its just the epitomy of throwing stones in glass houses) being described as a coconut? well, it just made me giggle.*

Eugh, and now Peter Costello is on Lateline stating he doesn’t think Rudd would be a good leader. Really? As the man just waiting for Howard to lie down and die so he can stand at the front of the line and boss everyone around, that is quite a breathtaking statement of the bleeding fucking obvious. Eugh, it all just makes my skin crawl.

That is all.

*apologies for the appalling punctuation. No excuse. Just poor.

    Wow. I almost consider myself informed about non-USA politics. At least now, if the subject came up, I could nod sagely at the mention of various names.

    I’m with you on Rudd – I thought he was a bit gormless, but now I can truely see him as PM. But I’d vote for Paris Hilton as PM just to get Howard out of the House.

    I’m very distrubed by the heat behind the current State and Federal smear campaigns. It definitely shows the Libs are scared.

    Agree about the smears- hideous, but are they running scared.
    I quite liked Rudd all along, but I also like Joe Hockey.
    There you go, I sit astride the political fence, but I do loathe Howard- we refer to him as Little Johnny Fart Pants, in this house.
    Just saying.

    WE’ve liked Rudd for a long time at our house, we particularly like the way he makes points CLEARLY & SENSIBLY instead of the usual waffly poli-speak.

    I’m considering emigrating if Howard gets in again…
