Early onset dementia

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:

  1. No-one would be listening to him anyway, so he could say what he liked.
  2. He is a moron.
  3. 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.

    Spray, A brain fart surly indicates existence of a brain and unfortunately with everything he says,writes speaks,body language etc, can be reversed as soon as he changes the foot in his mouth, such an organ either has to be pea size or or even smaller if such exists. As Abe L. once said “you can fool some of the people all of the time all of the people some of the time but not all of the people all the time”. ie The people in this context = the parliamentary liberal party. When are these f**wits going to wake up. The rodent provided the brain fodder for 13+ yrs they have now had 3yrs off the tit/spoon whatever. Imagine where we would be if they had a decent LOTO, on second thoughts leave him there less real damage to Julia and the team.

      Bilko I agree.
      I reckon post-Christmas there’ll be a serious case of buyer’s remorse and he’ll be lucky to see out the year.
      We can only hope they shove Hockey or Pyne into the top job…now wouldn’t that be hilarious. I can just picture the Oz “journos” tying themselves in knots trying to make either of those two potential PM material.

    They managed it with Abbott and what a shambles he turned out to be. The rest of the shadow front bench are just mere shadows almost vapourware. Why today it appears Sen Fielding has displayed more common sense than all of them put togetgher.

      Yeah that’s the scary part…maybe he thought he’d be lynched if he went against it. After all if there’s no internet access how will the Fundies filter it?

    I read somewhere that TA told his followers that they’d got the upper hand on the NBN.

    I read somewhere that TA told his faithfull followers that they had got the upper hand on the NBN. He must be delusional

      The guy’s an arse-clown of the first order.

      I reckon he’s just blowing smoke up their arse to try to stave off the knife in the back. Now that the NBN is a done deal, he’s got absolutely nothing, and he knows it. The joys of being a policy free zone.

    A policy free zone describes the coalition perfectly and he has supported them for years, too late to gain a concience only 24 mins to close down. I am told the press conf at noon will be a humdinger worth watching

      Is it his or the Govts? I’ll keep an eye out for it anyway…

    Mr. Abbott’s problem is that he and his supporters believe their own spin.

    Hi Massive, this might give you some joy:

      Migs, unfortunately I’ve been away for a week or so and am not sure if the current weekly pick is the one you are referring to…was it the one referring to the “King of Spin” article?

  8. December 5, 2010 at 7:57 PM

    In the country’s two biggest states, the Liberal Party will be focused on their new state governments. They’ll have grown-up work to do, rather than the Question Time hoo-ha that the Feds are going on with.

    Gillard is starting to hit her stride. Letting the government out from under the PM’s thumb will mean that good ministers will get a chance to shine, and there’ll be good work done here and there.

    Howard put the cleaners through the Liberal Party in 1995-96: nothing was going to get in the way of victory. Abbott saw that but he can’t do it. Ted Baillieu and Barry O’Farrell will strangle Abbott if he touches anything within the Liberal Party that they don’t want touched.

    Abbott looks like being the weakest Federal Liberal leader since John Gorton. The Liberal Party is happy to be taken by the scruff of the neck provided they are actually going places, but Abbott isn’t. The niggling is wearing thin: it didn’t work for Kim Beazley and he was a nice guy. The Libs have the odd win now and then but it won’t be enough. Expect more of that ‘jetlag’ stuff. Abbott is past his peak and one day people will just get sick of him.

    Hi Massive. It was this article. This week is the King of Spin.

    Just wanted to let you know that I thought your article was the pick of the crop last week.

    • December 7, 2010 at 3:05 PM

      Thanks Migs…high praise indeed.
      Still trying to catch up on everything…seems a lot went down while I was incommunicado.

  10. December 7, 2010 at 4:00 PM

    Yes indeed, Massive. The whole world waits ’til you’ve turned your back and then it springs into action. It happens in reverse to me with cricket. Aussie wickets fall whenever I turn on the TV. I banned from watching it at work for that reason.

    • December 8, 2010 at 9:08 AM

      Well that’s a good thing as far as I’m concerned regarding the cricket. I’m hoping the Aussies get their arses thoroughly kicked this series.
      Read my latest post for my take on it.
