Doomsday: COUNTDOWN

VOTE, n. The instrument and symbol of a freeman’s power to make a fool of himself and a wreck of his country.
Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary
US author & satirist (1842 – 1914)

It started getting a lot more heated than usual when I saw in Time Magazine they started using caricatures of Kevin Rudd as a brown hare and Howard as a turtle as a reference towards Aesop’s Fables and the fact that Rudd got a rockstar’s welcome at his old school in Nambour during the starting periods of the election campaign that is truly up and running like an Aussie Arsonist’s bushfire, going for the hills. The only thing that Howard got that could classify in the same department was when he went to a local shopping centre and a poor woman collapsed when other shoppers and random members of the populace welcomed him. In that area, he got owned. Old-school style. I am already inching in the Rudd voters party since what he offers sounds nicer to what Howard would do (read: Jack shit). Broadband for schools; are you serious? Also, I’ve read that Rudd will sign the Kyoto Protocol, amazing what he’ll do to secure votes permanently. But then again, people have criticized that they are both leaders who are merely “pulling all the stops” so that the other guy won’t get to be PM, but labelling both of these two people as “corrupt” is a bit far-fetched, unless people will beg to differ here. Let’s just see how it goes, since this is a moment of great tension for those two crazies and the future of Oz.

  1. Do you think Rudd will win? I mean, it always looks good for the opposition against Howard, and then Howard still wins. Like the last election, I really though the opposition would win, but they didn’t!

    As far as I’m concerned, I’m going for Rudd. Plus when that person collapsed, did you see Howard’s face? He was like, “Oh my God, what do I do?”

  2. His eyebrows make him look worried. For both the men, the situation is quite tense, but Kevin Rudd is keeping his cool without a hitch. I mean, how could a man like him lose?

    Aww….Aesop’s Fables! Haven’t thought about those in a while… 🙂

  3. Well, I say Kevin the Hare will win. Unless a certain somebody somehow managed to get another “change-nothing” term.
