    1. Is there anyone left on the planet who hasn’t been likened to Hitler in the past year?.

    1. The good news is the Year of the Dog is almost over with the Year of the Pig to follow.

      Pork barbeque sandwiches for everyone! But what will be the ramifications within the ROP in this year of an unclean beast?

    1. A very blessed Christmas to you all!

    1. Quite a roundup there. One didn’t need confirmation of the idiocy of Richard “drivel” Neville, or that Denton is not the insightful sage he’s cracked up to be. Credit, however, to David Williamson for that line about corporate executives and sociopathic behaviour – it is an observable fact that corporations reward it and therefore encourage it. Naming names would be a drawn out process. In view of the terrible happenings on P&O ships, a little revision of the derision of Williamson on that subject might be in order too. While I would not be signing up for a “Gough & Margaret Politico-Historical Cruise “, some remediation of P&O cruise rules (or lack of them) might be in order.

      Now, with Christmas nearly ended,
      And my stomach quite distended,
      Available funds are all expended
      Just as many times before.
      We’ll return to simpler repast,
      Though the champers supply did last,
      It has really been a big blast;
      Quoth the raven: Nevermore!

    1. #6: Poetry’s not my strength, but I should admire the talent displayed on this blog. Nice one, Blogstrop!

    1. #7: That’s “sure” not “should”. PIMF. Say, what’s in this egg nog, anyway?

    1. I don’t know Blogstrop.  I always thought that one of those tours organised during the eighties led by Gough and Margaret would have been very entertaining to go on.  I am sure they would be very amusing company. Hopefully Gough would be sensible enough to leave the ‘I was robbed’ speech until the end, when the rest of the tour group could treat it like a stand up comedy routine.

    1. Phatty gets the gong; can always rely on Aunty for the absurd (daily).

      Oh, sure! I could’ve done that.
      If I had any talent.

    1. #2 Good comment, Adolf.

    1. Writer Kathy Lette contends that “having a teenage daughter is like living with the Taliban”.

      So her daughter liked to dress up in burqas?  Strange.  My daughter alternated between Britney Spears and Mr. Hyde.

      Rather odd, coming from the author of “Puberty Blues”.

      A classic Moonbat comment from an arch (US) feminist claiming on ABC Radio in the late 80s that “VCRs were invented for men to watch pornography” – something Sony & Philips would no doubt be curious about … the people they let near a mic.

      … handycams were invented for Paris Hilton’s “home videos”?

    1. Phillip Adams comes up with a you-beaut theory about why the governor-general, Sir John Kerr, dismissed Gough Whitlam’s Labor Government and installed Malcolm Fraser as prime minister in 1975. According to Adams, Kerr was a closet homosexual and “the G-G had fallen out of love with Gough and into love with Malcolm”. He foretells that his thesis “won’t find itself into learned tomes or PhDs on constitutional crises”. Fancy that.

      Apart from being comedy gold, the Adams quote is kind of perplexing. I’ve spent my life trying to nut out just what happened in 1975, thinking it was a hugely complex intersection between politics and constitutional law, and it was just about closet “gaiety”! And nice to see another lefty journalist suggesting that there might actually be “something wrong with that”.

      And the resort to lowest common denominator journalism is here too. You can’t admire someone unless you’re “in love with” them. You can’t dislike someone or something, with being a “-phobe” (eg. homophobe) or an “-ist” (eg. racist, chauvinist).

    1. Rebecca, maybe her daughter liked to dress her up in a burqa…

    1. According to Adams, Kerr was a closet homosexual and “the G-G had fallen out of love with Gough and into love with Malcolm”.

      Actually, this raises more questions about Philco’s orientation, although I believe the term is ‘warehouse homosexual.’

    1. ‘warehouse homosexual.’

      What the hell’s that? Some one queer for extra storage space?

      Or maybe someone who’d prefer to bend over, rather than lift from the knees?

    1. #19: No, I believe it refers to someone whose gothic dimensions cannot be concealed in anything as small as a closet.

      Posted by paco on 2006 12 26 at 01:57 PM • permalink


    1. gothic dimensions

      So, he’s into wearing really dark tents?

      Posted by Grimmy on 2006 12 26 at 02:00 PM • permalink


    1. #21: Yes, and it’s a scandalous waste! His bathrobe, alone, could shelter a family of Tuaregs.
