"I hate you and everything you stand for"
Yes, well, bit of an hiatus there.
First of all, thanks to Melba and Catlick for their emails, asking if I was OK.
I'm fine, thanks.
Actually, I'm in my usual mode of "barely contained, teeth-gnashing" rage, largely due to my stupid habit of continuing to read political commentators in the media.
Why, I don't know.
It's not like any of the fuckers are ever going to say anything different, or well written or even vaguely interesting.
But the really depressing thing is that they constantly contradict themselves, without showing the slightest sense of shame.
Take, for example, the recent flap over the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). For days, they shrieked that the Gillard Government should rush the NDIS legislation through the Commonwealth Parliament before the next election.
Despite the fact that for some months before hand, they had been shrieking at the Gillard Government to not rush the the new communications legislation through Commonwealth Parliament before the next election.
Or the fact that the discussion over the recent deferral of the carbon levy compensation has been led almost entirely by political commentators discussing whether is was good politics or not, rather than the economics correspondents discussing whether it was good policy or not.
I give up.
As Tom Lehrer once famously said "When they gave the Nobel Peace Prize to Henry Kissinger, I realised political satire was obsolete,".
Next; adorably cute kittens and why they suck.
