Blog post of the week

Go and have a look at this lovely piece by Tim Dunlop for the ABC's The Drum on the achievements of Tony Abbott, including discussion of the Budgie's 'unconventional approach to policy' and his 'malleable approach to straightforwardness'.

The comments thread, featuring character analyses of Kevin 'Mugabe' Rudd and Tim 'Red to the Core' Dunlop himself, is also good for a laugh, but is not for the faint-hearted.

Good stuff. I love a bit of satire myself, especially when it alerts us to a certain 'emotional truth'.

To be honest, I think that Abbott's interest in sport is his one redeeming feature. Every time I read something slagging him off for that, I get a bit shitty. I mean, I have no trouble finding the things that he _says_ really fucking annoying.
