Urgh. Lotta champagne. Feeling seedy but good for the result. Swing to Libs, Manboobs blooded as a loser, which has never happened to him in his life. And Green irrelevance in the Senate.
Good all over.
Today's Sunday programming, ABC's Insiders and Sunday's Sunday were pretty darned good, the former for the virtual shellshocked silence of Barrie Cassidy and the latter for good coverage of what has gone on. That show really is top stuff.
I bin hitting the blogs to check out reactions, mostly lefty sites..oorunno, call it morbid curiousity.
Anyhoo, the upshot from the lefties is that electors exercising their voting rights to return Howard with an increased majority and control of the Senate are mostly stupid, ignorant, greedy, selfish, insular, money-obsessed, stupid and....stupid.
They are regular folks who love their kids, their parents, their nonna and nonno, they hold jobs, they renovate homes or build houses or buy houses, they go to parks and the movies, the sing the national anthem and care about Michael Clarke's cricket thing or the soccer in Seria A or the cricket in Bangalore. (Notice how the ALP has no flags at all in their signage? None. Like they are basically ashamed of Oz. Crazy. Part of why they lost I reckon.)
And they go to places like the Motor Show.
Where I will be going tomorrow afternoon.
To look at cars....tightly wound high performance cars, preferably Italian but also English and Australian too.
Advance Australia Fair.
