As Federal Parliament winds down for the year (NBN business case not withstanding), the latest of Mr Meerkat’s brain farts has come to light, and frankly it’s time to wonder about the state of his mental health.
Here’s a few snippets of his latest party room meeting address:
We have destroyed one Labor prime minister, nearly destroyed another and deprived a first-term government of a majority
They have taken a well-managed country and ruined it. ‘They have destroyed the fiscal position of the country. They have squandered the surplus to buy the polls.
Labor was quite good at politics, but very bad at running a country.
It’s important to have positive messages as well as pointing out the government’s shortcomings.
The government will want to assume the foetal position over Christmas and hide, because it has been a diabolical year.
Now there’s a time and a place for giving your troops a bit of a motivational gee-up, but using actual facts might make it easier for them to swallow.
There’s a few reasons I can think of my he has spouted such a massive amount of bullshit:
- No-one would be listening to him anyway, so he could say what he liked.
- He is a moron.
- He is desperately trying to escape from reality and is currently inhabiting his own LNP version of Inception where all of the above is actually true.
Now all joking aside, it’s hard to believe that a rational human being could believe all of that crap he’s just spouted without the slightest twinge of doubt. Without the intervention of his media cheer squad, the last election would have been a complete disaster for them, especially considering their primary vote barely changed from 2007. If he wasn’t continuous backed by Rupert’s toadies in Limited News and their poorer cousin the ABC, he’d only be a footnote in the rolls of Coalition losers.
I think it’s only a matter of time until the MSM runs out of ways to cover his stupidity and he gets the arse.
