The Election: Is it Over Yet?
Kill me now.
It’s only been day one of this so-called “election campaign” and already I’m over it. It seems like it’s been going on since 2007 and there are still 25 thousand more days to go to the election.
No wonder people are over politics. Apparently only one in every two 18 year olds is enrolled to vote and frankly who can blame them, when the choice at this election is between Mr Sheen or Solvol soap.
Meanwhile the two major parties (and those inner city latte swilling mung bean munching elitist lefties that call themselves “the Greens) are already bickering over which way their preferences will flow with the prospect of a not-so-well hung parliament becoming a distinct possibility.
Smooth operator Richard Di Natalie and his mysterious supporters who inhabit the twittersphere in Matrix-esque fashion are protesting at any suggestion they’ve done back room deals with Libs while Labor is resolutely refusing to consider negotiating with the Greens should a hung parliament become increasingly likely.
The Greens, apparently, want to “teach Labor a lesson” presumably one that dictates that their idyllic principles aren’t for sale, while Labor scoffs with contempt at the Greens’ sanctimonious grandstanding.
Competition for the high moral ground has rarely been this fierce, and while it may be a position that’s highly fought for, it’s one that few parties occupy for very long.
Let’s face it, it’s difficult to claim that people setting themselves on fire is somehow for their own good, but you’ve got to hand it to Peter Dutton for having the chutzpah to attempt to carry it off.
I’m fairly convinced that Mathias Cormann isn’t actually a human being, and if he once was, he’s been replaced with some random voice activated slogan generating device.
The amazing thing is that despite the sheer loathsome nature of the government’s so-called policies, there is still some 50% of the population that’s considering voting for them.
I mean, are people that mind numbingly fucking stupid?
