Christ almighty, give me strength.
Mike Seccombe and Barry Cassidy and the goodlooking chubby girl Karen Somebody on "Insiders" are on song, defending Latham from his own stupid muckracking, comprehending the US Senate Committee report as a clear determination that the Bush Lied People Died, and declaring, get this, that Latham may have fucked up Liverpool Council but that is not half as bad as Howard's egreeeeegious decision to join a Coalition to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and set that country on a course of democracy, unique among Arab countries in the Middle East.
Only Ackerman is there to attack Latham for his appalling behaviour last week, and for his trouble he gets Cassidy saying that all the dirt is coming from Liberal Party in to Ackerman's columns in the Daily Telegraph.
And Cassidy, like Stephen Loosley, ALP Poobah, on Channel 10 earlier, insists on this bullshit that Latham did not actually spread rumours himself before choking back tears about those very same rumours.
Swear to God, if it was not for Malcolm Farr in the Daily Telegraph and the Channel 9 "Sunday" show there would be no information worth taking on board about Oz politics at all.
