Poor old Shrek

As if being the poor goose that has to defend Workchoices isn’t enough of a burden, now Joe Hockey has to try and put out the fires of those political pyromaniacs of the Kelly Gang in his own seat – in 48 hours.
Shreks electorate of North Sydney is filled to the brim with people of a certain moral persuasion on social issues, their delicate Naw Shaw sensibilities being almost legendary…. Dahrling.
But out in the Bogansville of Lindsay, uber-Bogan Jackie Kelly and her bourbon swilling coterie of mental midgets thought it would be a really shit hot idea to start handing out fake ALP pamphlets depicting Labor being under the thumb of mufti-madness.
Honest to god – these guys must have the IQ of an ugg-boot.
With seats like Kooyong, Goldstein, Wentworth, Higgins, Ryan, Bennelong and North Sydney all having decent swings to the ALP in them, the last thing the Coalition wants the small L liberals in these places to hear is yet another reason for them to change their vote to that nice harmless man Kevin Rudd.
It’ll only take a few more votes for those seats that aren’t already changing to fall. Having blockheads from the dregs of the NSW Liberal Party pulling race stunts with 48 hours to go, must be making the members of those leafy seats looking for the nearest tree to string up these fools.
Earlier in the week we were talking about the how the last week of the campaign will probably be the most important week in the history of Australian conservative politics, and how the Coalition has to be very careful not to get caught up in scandals or general desperation. Well, they are trying as hard as they possibly can to do everything wrong. They’ve flung the poo, they’ve embroiled themselves in scandal and have generally made themselves look like a party that even some of their own hardcore supporters would be embarrassed to vote for.
Howard better start praying that the electorate actually has stopped listening. Because if it started listening in the last week – all it would have heard is a whole lot of “WTF?”.
Kelly was interviewed in Nine earlier, worth a listen to hear her pathetically cringe worthy faux-justifications – stay to the end for Laurie Oakes taking none of that horsefluff.
And here’s the offending pamphlet.
A little bit too used to blowing on this methinks
