For a few seconds federal politics was rocking so beautifully it was almost like being back in the 90s.
A new poll has shown that a majority of voters think Prime Minister Rudd can turn nasty if he doesn't get his own way.
Stating the bleedin' obvious, but that's what polls are for.
Barnaby Joyce, bless his little cotton socks, was equally unsurprised by the opinion poll, unabashedly declaring:
"The guy's a psycho chook"He elaborated:
"Who in their right mind gets onto a plane and because he doesn't get the right colour birdseed has a spack attack?''
On the other hand, Senator Mark Arbib defended his Kevness thusly:
"This is a very peculiar man who is leading our country,'' he said, referring to claims the Prime Minister demanded a hair dryer while visiting troops in Afghanistan, and his inability to hang onto staff.
"Australians understand that Mr Rudd is doing what's needed in the national interest"Hairdryers in Afghanistan are needed in our national interest! Who knew?
The unenlightening poll also threw up the astonishing finding that nearly "one in two" (I guess that would translate to "nearly half") voters believe opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull is - gasp - arrogant.
Because, you know, in Australia, we prefer our pollies to be humble and dumb. Don't want anyone smart or up themselves running the place.
