The Age’s Traceeee Hutchison – no longer a freak! – has a new favourite thing:
When Kevin Rudd walked on stage to claim his place as Australia’s 26th prime minister, the woman he calls his life partner stood with her hand in his beside him, and shimmied. She leant forward and, with a cheeky glint in her eye, shook her shoulders from side to side and shimmied. And it was glorious.
If ever there was an image to differentiate the old from the new on election night, it was Therese Rein’s shimmy. As surprising as the revelation that I’ve placed a shimmy above Australia electing its first female deputy prime minister and Maxine McKew’s “in heaven no one’s blind” moment might be, the shimmy said it all …
Let’s all get down and shimmy!
Manic Traceeee is even less readable than depressive Traceeee. More from kisdm001: “Traceeee’s column today includes a rather dodgy claim: ‘Suddenly we had a first couple who were smart, successful AND sexy. It was magnificent.’ Sexy sure has changed since I left Australia …”
Was that really a “shimmy”? Maybe she had momentarily become, you know, uncupped, and was just shaking things back into place. Or maybe a beetle crawled into her cleavage. Or maybe she had just realized that she was holding Kevin’s pickin’ hand, and was overcome with a bad case of the willies. Or maybe Kevin – that card! – had furtively slipped a joy buzzer onto his finger. Could have been anything, really; t’weren’t necessarily a shimmy.
Oh, for the moment our PM is name-tagged Kevin Rein on an overseas trip.
If this is the kind of stuff they allow to be published, you can only imagine the quality of writing that is cut out. Whenever I read Traceee I have visions of some poor subeditor with their head in their hands.Posted by Margos Maid on 2007 11 30 at 06:43 PM • permalink
Oh, God, he calls his wife* his “life partner”? How nauseating. My ex-boyfriend used to call me that. The relationship lasted about a year and a half—so much for “life partner.”
*She is his wife, isn’t she? Or are Australians less conservative in that area than Americans? In my country you are practically required to have a traditional opposite-sex spouse if you want to run for the higher offices. Hey, I don’t make the rules, I just report them.Posted by Andrea Harris, Administrator on 2007 11 30 at 06:44 PM • permalink
But if I had to nominate a flashpoint when I felt my body jolt upright with exultant anticipation and gushing love of country, it actually came courtesy of the first lady-elect, Therese Rein.
Looks like a potential entry in this.Posted by Margos Maid on 2007 11 30 at 06:49 PM • permalink

“…shook her shoulders from side to side and shimmied.’’
I’m having trouble visualising this. I can shoulder-shimmy too – it’s one of the basic bellydance moves – but it involves the shoulders going forward and back, not side to side. It sounds like the lady was just trying to adjust a slipped brassiere strap without using her hands.
Other than that I agree with paco’s comments at #16. This kind of behavior is just embarrassing.Posted by Sonetka’s Mom on 2007 11 30 at 07:19 PM • permalink

#9 Andrea: ‘She is his wife, isn’t she? Or are Australians less conservative in that area than Americans?’
‘Fraid so. PC equates husband with ‘evil’, so ‘wife’ must be too. [Rudd is a ‘modern Christian’ like Blair] Many official forms do not even allow mention of the old terms – too ‘discriminatory’.
The word ‘partner’ implies a contractual arrangement that in business is enforced much better than any mere marriage certificate.
‘Life partner’ has all the force of ‘life sentence’ here – risible.
Even 30 years ago my state government insulted my wife by sending her a form after the birth of our first child [they knew we were married], with the prefix ‘Ms’.
I complained to no effect.
Ash, these two bints are so excited by the prospect of sitting at the “table of power” they must be positively fizzing at the gusset.Posted by ooh honey honey on 2007 11 30 at 08:33 PM • permalink

I think she means shimmy as in how you’d describe a 1954 Desoto with a partially glazed clutch trying to drive up a 30 in 1 incline while full of obese Maoris.
Otherwise it’s too dreadful to visualise- and did you see what she was wearing when she turned up to pick up the keys for the Lodge?
bogan with lotto win writ large (and I mean size 16 OOOS).
somewhat OT, but it’s started.
“THE United Nations’ chief climate negotiator says the Rudd government’s decision to ratify the Kyoto Protocol is more than symbolic – and warns it faces penalties if it fails to meet its targets.”
Bend over all of you that use energy in any of its forms.
This is just going to get better and better. If both Traceeeeeeeeee and the fat tart have both been wet with excitement over the KRuddster since the election, what happens when The Man of Wax does not deliver his promised piece of political pork to them?
If hell hath no fury etc, how will the thick-and-ugly sexually excited brainless neocommie female* journalist demographic respond when he goes all limp on them?
Now, I honestly do not know, but I have beer and pretzels to consume while I sit back and watch the fun.
* I did not use ‘woman’ here as using the term in relation to Traceeee and Deveneeee would be to insult the women who post on this site. And some of them are armed.
Sexy sure has changed since I left Australia …”

- The ‘collective’ or the pseudo intellectual ones anyway, really do get glassy/fluffy over Rudd and Co. The gushing and cooing, some reintroduction of ‘PC speech’ etc, because they assume some of their ‘sage scribblings’ will now be absorbed by a majority of the population.
Traceeee’s dribble probably gave her an inner warm glow. But I would rate Baldricks (from the Blackadder series) ‘Little Sausage’ novella far more credible. Whats more it has far more interesting points.
They don’t sell “Jello” down under?
BTW, My Sister Kate would be insulted to learn this is how Aussies describe a “shimmy”!
“What are we to make of our Australian Camelot judging by the looks of both Deveny and Rein?”

Has anybody else noticed that Deveney looks like a female version of her hero Paul Keating in the photo linked to by Nic (#33)? Same seething contempt for ordinary Australians too.
What will she morph into now that Kevin is PM?Posted by Toiling Mass on 2007 11 30 at 10:11 PM • permalink

… consequently, the whole shack shimmied … c/- Traceeh!’s Love Shack?
I wonder what it is about leftard males that leaves their womyn (the ones who are’nt catching the Clapham omnibus anyway) so sexually frustrated?Posted by eeniemeenie on 2007 11 30 at 11:53 PM • permalink
For G-d’s Sake! What was Traceeee doing during Kevni’s speech, diddling herself?
Her columns reads like “Autobiography of a Flea”.
Probably shows up at Fairfax and says “Catherine—smell my fingers…”Posted by MentalFloss on 2007 12 01 at 12:23 AM • permalink
#51 kae “What does New Zealand owe already?”
According to Alex Robson in the Daily Telegraph:
The New Zealand Treasury estimates New Zealand’s Kyoto liability currently stands at NZ$708 million.
This doesn’t sound like very much, but this guess is more than double what it was two years ago.
At that rate of increase, at the end of the first Kyoto commitment period in 2012, New Zealanders will owe about NZ$4.2 billion – or about NZ$1000 per person.
Suckers!Posted by Bruce Rheinstein on 2007 12 01 at 12:34 AM • permalink
- #51 Kae: What does NZ owe on Kyoto?
Projections of up to $2.3 billion here.
And the latest NZ Treasury estimate of $717 million (as at Sep 30 07) here.
Amazing when you consider that nearly all NZ’s greenhouse gases are generated by farm animals.
Imagine what the bill will be like if they ever develop industry and can afford to own cars.
#37 – Therese like a 1954 De Soto? Habib, you the man! Picture perfect! ‘54 De Soto

I can’t add much to what’s already been said, but the thought of pudgy middle-aged women with no fashion sense “shimmying” is anything but a pleasant thought.

There’s a serious point lurking beneath the surface here.
Mr and Mrs. Rein REALLY ARE SEXY to Leftards and it clearly shows their divorce from reality and their own internal processes.
Even though Traceeee may very well have a thing for earwax-eating ponces and a love for twisted symbols of power, this is serious business and a true perversion, not just the foolish blatherings of a borderline imbecile.Posted by Harry Bergeron on 2007 12 01 at 02:21 PM • permalink
Whilst i cannot stand Revin Kudd as our Prime Minister, I feel it is unfair to attack his wife on her looks and weight. If she was your next door neighbour one would accept her as a very pleasant woman with a pleasing countenance.
As with many woman it is nigh impossible for most of us to have bodies like Jaylo past age 25 and motherhood which certainly encourages the body to store fat just where we don’t want it.
Attack the Man and his party for the lying lot they are but leave the families out of it.
However talking of fat cows- did any one see that dipstick Maria Venuti slavering over Maxine Mc HOGG-Bob done well had two wives now feeding at the trough.
“As with many woman it is nigh impossible for most of us to have bodies like Jaylo past age 25”
Deveny has a body more like two Jaylos.Posted by Dave Surls on 2007 12 01 at 04:05 PM • permalink
#70 – As far as I know, the money goes to buying carbon credits to pay for the Kiwi CO2 blowout.
The Russian mafia have pretty much cornered the market here – they amassed a googolplex of carbon credits following Brussell’s stumblebum massive over-issue of credits to existing CO2 producers. The Russkis cheated more than most and had lots to trade to the same old useful idiots who thought the rules of the game were all about playing fair – eg the Kiwis.
The billion or two NZ will spend in buying carbon credits will provide zero benefits for Kiwis, but provide a hell of a good time for the Russian mafia.
Hey, maybe the mafioski could use it to buy the All Blacks with the South Island thrown in.
A hat tip to Jelly Roll Morton.
Oh, I wish I could I shimmy like my sister Kate;
She makes it shake like a jelly on a plate.
My mama wanted to know just the other night,
Wonder why the boys think Kate’s so right
Now all the boys in the neighborhood,
They know that she can shimmy and it’s understood;
It will sure be great when I’m up-to-date
When I can shimmy like my sister Kate.
I mean, when I shimmy like my sister Kate!
It says volumes for Kev that the “woman” in his life doesn’t think enough of him to share his name. You just can’t please Therese. Even becoming PM wasn’t good enough.Posted by Infidel Tiger on 2007 12 01 at 09:42 PM • permalink
I was 33 when I got married. He was put out that I hadn’t changed my name six moths after the wedding. I changed it.
It was very annoying as most of my working life I was known as X and suddenly I was someone else.
Quite often women with tertiary qualifications do not change their names when they get married because they are known and recognised by their name.Perhaps she didn’t like the name “Rudd”.
Slightly better than KRudd.
I had a 1963 Dodge long ago that had a terrible shimmy. It needed new ball joints. Perhaps Australia’s new First Life Partner should try a new ball joint. It might make her feel better. Traceeeee sounds like she could use a few herself.Posted by Furry Lewis on 2007 12 01 at 10:47 PM • permalink

Nope, sorry, you have not been paying sufficient attention. If the standard jibe on neocommie websites and blogs for the last decade about Janette Howard has been about how ugly/fat/retarded/stupid/badly dressed she was, if her cancer was used along the line of ‘wish it would come back and kill her’, and if the standard name for her was ‘Hyacinth Bucket’, then a few jibes about KRudds millionaire missus must be OK.
After all, if the self-proclaimed superior morality-nazis of the neocommie community has approved such behaviour in spades, it must be just peachy. The trick is to use it, but not to use it as often, or with the hate the neocommies possess.
Then when they whine about it, use it to illustrate the depths of their own hypocrisy and the moral sewer they live in.

If Mrs Rudd is going to shimmy like a stripper on national TV, she is fair game – just like all those women who shimmy on Jerry Springer. If she had conducted herself like a (first) lady, what you say is absolutely correct. Our previous first ladies, Labor and Liberal, didn’t seem to have a problem with dignity.
Wow, folks, this is Tracee’s coming out declaration – who’d have thought Therese Rein’s er…country …would be the target of Tracee’s…er…allegiance.

#86, nope I’m with Hillyminx on this one. I’m not interested in decanting invective on Ms Rein when clearly Kevin and Co will need every last speck I can muster when they start doing the dodgy on various issues.

#88- I thought it was a transvestite but my more observant better half assured me it was the very same Ms Venutti. I thought Kev had picked up the pervert vote, but that’s still with the Greens methinks.
Ditto for previous assertions- I have never made disparaging remarks about Janette Howard because she acted with grace and manners, and kept her beak out of hobbys job; Ol’ Chief Rein in the Face however has all the hallmarks of being a bogan Hillary Clinton, a prospect to hideous to contemplate. I’m waiting for her to have one too many West Coast Coolers at the Shangri La at Kuta and get the girls out for the Delegation from Saudi Arabia. Then to demand control of national healthcare.
Christ. At work yesterday, a colleague – on hearing part of the Rudder’s 50-minute long press conference – commented:
“Smart, intelligent, articulate and sexy!”
Granted, this may have had something to do with her political preferences and biases, but still – why this urge to portray Labor politicians as sex symbols? It’s grotesque!
