Matt Welch gains an insight into Australian journalism:
Tim Blair, who is flying over the Pacific as I speak after a fine weekend of n’er-do-welling in L.A., occasionally likes trying to convince me that if I marinated daily in the hellbroth of dullard Australian commentary, why, I’d be a conservative too! I think he’s just trying to justify his unseemly man-crush on Zell Miller, but reading Caudillo-fluffing rot like this almost makes me wonder.
Author of said rot, Andrew West, is a cheery fellow; met him last night at the Walkley Awards. I must stop going to these things. People are too friendly. Lateline host Tony Jones—interesting guy, and not as reflexively leftoid as might be assumed—began a long chat with this smiling remark: “Oh, yes. The guy who called me Snowcone Tone.”
