Cheap Shots

There are days, many of them, when Tony Abbott, alleged leader of the Federal Liberal Party and aspiring Prime Minister, behaves like a repulsive 12 year old and spits out such illogical and irrelevant nonsense that it's tempting to call his wife to ask her to drag his dumb arse home:

Tony Abbott has mocked Julia Gillard's decision to attend next month's royal wedding, saying she does not believe in God, the monarchy or marriage.

Mr Abbott, a staunch Catholic and monarchist who is married with children, questioned Ms Gillard's bona fides to attend the wedding during yesterday's joint party room meeting.

Ms Gillard and her partner, Tim Mathieson, have accepted an invitation to attend next month's wedding in London between Prince William and Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey.

Mr Abbott predicted Ms Gillard would receive another poll bounce from this venture. ''She may not believe in God, the monarchy or marriage but there will be a royal wedding bounce,'' he said.
Abbott questioned the Prime Minister's bona fides to accept an invitation to a royal wedding? 

Stupid little twerp. 

Of course, let's not forget that politics, and federal politics in particular, has fallen into such odious disrepute that Neil Mitchell Alan Jones, a radio shock jock, berated the Prime Minister on air for arriving late for an interview.

Not only did Gillard take it, no one in any public arena bothered to point out the unforgivable rudeness of Mitchell's Jones' vigorous (and not at all joking) chiding of the women who runs the country, and the extraordinary display of disrespect for the office of Prime Minister.

Oh, and while Abbott was mouthing off, he:
... likened the period between now and the next election to ''trench warfare'' but predicted a Coalition victory.
Trench warfare?  Like mud and excrement and blood?  Way to raise the bar Tone.

Abbott questions why PM is going to royal wedding


  1. Solomon12:58 AM

    Yea according to Tony "We were all pretty wild in those days" Abbott because Julia isn't married she doesn't believe in marriage. This should be a deal-breaker.

    Also I thought it was Alan Jones who criticised her for being late or did that happen twice? I'm not all that concerned about the office of Prime Minister but Jesus, stop being such a whiney little bitch.

  2. I easily get my foaming right wing shock-jocks confused, Sol - you're correct, it was Jones.

    I don't think anyone is compelled to contemplate or have respect for any office, but the dissing from Jones reflects the current depth of disdain for politicians, and yes, the extreme lack of respect for the people running our country, who have a rather large influence on our lives - the lower we drag them, all the worse for us.
