ANOTHER RAVE REVIEW

Radio National listener Ron Holmes writes:

Hi Tim,

I heard you mentioned on Radio National this morning (you even spoke! imagine that! you on the ABC! I suppose you can’t let a vitriolic hatred of the ABC get in the way of a bit of egotistical self-promotion) and thought I should look up your blog, seeing as how I’ve never heard of you before. Must be a Sydney/Melbourne thing. Or the fact that you write for The Australian. Whatever.

Anyway, I think I’m going to be a regular visitor to your blog. After all, this is raw journalism at its best!
No censorship!
No rules!
No editor!
No sense!
No need to prove your assertions!
No forethought!
No brains!

Yes, now I won’t have to read Andrew Bolt’s flatulent offerings when I want to be reassured that the conservatives are actually quite clueless and can be safely ignored, and even provide a hearty chuckle on a quiet day.

You really are a vicious, spiteful little one aren’t you. It’s funny how much that chip on your shoulder aches, seeing as how your people are supposedly in power. I can only imagine that what drives your anger and spite is the same thing that keeps John Howard going: the knowledge that you are so hated, so sneered at and so laughed at by anyone who has really mattered in Australia. Your inability to be recognised must really bite.

ps. Gee Tim, I really hope you quote my email to you, just like all the others you mention in your blog. Oh, but I haven’t been kissing your arse, have I, so you will probably just bin this. Sniff, sniff. I’m shattered.
