This Sunday's Sunday show is solid gold. They got the PM interview for Laurie Oakes going in to the election this coming Saturday, and it was good lengthy robust interview.
The two journos doing a piece all about following the campaign trail, with priceless footage of Manboobs Latham out for his "daily" jog - ya, zif. If it was daily would he be so fat his shorts ride up between his thighs up to his dick, as he pounds each stride down on to the innocent pavement, you know that look? That loser look that makes it seem as if his own body is trying to give him a frontal wedgie?
Ha ha ha ha. Oh, priceless. The man was wheezing. Cut to Howard, old enough to be Manboobs's dad, walking along and breathing normally at the end of it.
Plus there was footage of Manboobs on 'The Chaser' when he full on hit one of the Chaser boys in the face with one of those Nerf (?is that how you spell it?) bats and said 'piss off' to him as well.
Then shoot to footage of Manboobs defending his nerf thuggery at some radio interview he did, and he was babbling about how hitting the guy in the face was all part of a comedy sketch and he is more than a one dimensional guy and blah blah blah for too long.
He always talks for too long, doesn;t he? So does Howard. Politico thing, I guess.
Plus footage of him leaving the interview and shaking his head as he walked away, zif he's surprised and shocked that he, a bloke who has bashed a cabbie, an old Labor bloke at Liverpool and told his first wife to 'be a good girl', would be considered to have acted badly by hitting an ABC Chaser boy in the face - in the face (you know how Two Times Manboobs likes to repeat phrases) with a nerf bat.
And then a bunch of footage of Two Times Manboobs doing his two times thing....nice splicing, all the occasions taken from his Labor launch speech. 'Fixing teeth. Fixing teeth.' Urgh.
Plus footage of Latham wheeling in old Gough.
Manboobs Latham, Son-of-Gough.
If that doesn't make you think twice about this..boring egomaniacal thug becoming leader of the greatest nation on earth - our Oz - then nothing will.
Pretty terrific. Howard looks like the most harmless normal bloke next to Latham's massive ego and, frankly, his phsyically intimidating thuggery.
Then, Sunday does a bit on fringe loony parties, in this case Anarchists (led by wogs, natch and the Italian kind. Orunno why it is that the Italians get off on the anarchy so much....oh, who am I trying to kid, Italy is anarchy, if you've ever been there. Madness but in a kind of beautiful chaos. God love it) and Lyndon La Rouche nutters in Oz, featuring a girl who, looked to me for all the world like a person who's been touched by the crazy brush, know what I mean.? Whoo. Rolling eyes and everything.
And just now we've had the swinging voters of Parramatta, who are going Labor, undecided, something called Christian Democrats x 2, independent, Liberal lower house Labor upper, and Labor again. All very lively.
And now a bit about the King's School in NSW - all about the Labor class warfare in taking money off private schools to give to public schools, as if the public schools are poor because the rich schools are rich.
Lord how I loathe that sort of blinkered stupid leftie Latin American thinking.
There's plenty of money for the States to manage their public schools so their facilities at least are in good shape. For crying outta loud the States get all the GST. They are richer than ever before so why don't they spend it on their own State schools?
Federal funding for schools (Orunneveno how that is even constitutional....but let us not fuss about that right now) is reward for taxpayers who send their kids to those schools. If Latham had half a brain he would have seen the merit in just freezing the private school funding and not actually taking it off them. Less class envy then.
But Manboobs loves his hate, doesn't he?
Loves to be hater, doesn't he? Urgh. He'd really hate my mum, what with her love of opera, race horses and Valetino clothes. Hate her guts, I reckon. AFter all, she worked hard to send me to a private school. How awful of her to have had the benefit of some of the taxes she paid over the years...how very awful.
Mind you, she'd loathe him right back. On this Ma and I see eye to eye. We both agree Manboobs Latham is one of the ugliest men we have ever seen.
So, Sunday show, spending a lot of time, the most that I have ever seen, actually revealing Manboobs as bloated and with a bloated sense of self-importance.
