Runaround: POLLIE PARROT

CAPITAL, n. The seat of misgovernment. That which provides the fire, the pot, the dinner, the table and the knife and fork for the anarchist; the part of the repast that himself supplies is the disgrace before meat. Capital Punishment, a penalty regarding the justice and expediency of which many worthy persons — including all the assassins — entertain grave misgivings.
Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary
US author & satirist (1842 – 1914)

In the latest news of the mass-media/mind’s fuck-ups that is the 2007 Election for the next Prime Minister, the West has delivered these headlines:

Desperate Howard’s Dash to WA.

Rudd is a danger, says desperate PM.

Desperate. That is probably the Word of the Year thanks to these guys. The ads for the whole campaign has gone rather viral too. Check out these videos, stolen er, borrowed from Youtube:

Let the Great Debate and Drama Queenesque Catfights begin!

This one appeared a lot.

This one was turned down.

This was to do with the mortgages and things; the same subject this poor sod ended up getting attacked on during 7’s Sunrise, ouch!

This one was Rudd’s response to the dirt that was dished at him during this moronically interesting campaign. Kev the Hare himself appears in the ad and switches off a television that plays an ads going against him. Maybe that’s why Howard thinks Rudd is dangerous, just like a crazed religious nut armed with nuclear weapons who can actually spell the word “Nuclear”. But the time has come to boot out the Guy Who Supported Not To Sign the Protocol and drag in the new guy, kicking and screaming, like a baby entering the world against it’s will. But the word “desperate” is funny, isn’t it? It’s a word used to summon help or reinforcements; one of those words that haven’t really lost meaning because of it’s lack of use. Until now. Or maybe those guys are pulling all the stops just for that nice house over there. Or that Lodge.
