Ruddstoration mania

July 25, 2012 20 comments

There’s now 3 things certain in life…death, taxes and a Ruddstoration beat-up.

In fact it’s now becoming scarily predictable when a Ruddstoration beat-up will waft out of the media orifices.  As far as I can tell it’s based on the following factors:

  1. The LNP beat-up de jour is dying a painful death
  2. Tony Abbott is out of the country.
  3. The government is getting clear air/faint praise/no brickbats
  4. A Newspoll is due that week
  5. The Canberra press gallery are bored and have nothing to write about.

It wouldn’t surprise me if all of these stories are initiated by LNP staffers and fed to their public relations arm (the MSM) on a regular basis.  After all they have nothing else to offer the country and certainly have no principles at all…at least none that don’t revolve around claiming power and feathering their own nests.

The fact is that Rudd is insanely unpopular, regardless of what the polls say.  Breakdowns have repeatedly shown that his popularity figures have been gamed by LNP supporters…ALP supporters by and large don’t want a bar of him.  The same applies to Turnbull’s popularity figures being gamed by ALP supporters…not that you’ll hear anything about anyone being more popular than the Mad Monk.

It boils down to a fundamental choice by the ALP…do you want to be seen as a party that wants to govern the country or a party that wants to win elections?  The LNP are the latter type and you can see what contempt they hold the average Aussie in…all they are is walking votes.  Have a look at the lived experience of LNP governments in Qld, NSW and Vic if you want to see what a country under Abbott will look like…sends shivers down your spine.

Australians love a fighter and have no time for softcocks.  If the Government decides to switch leaders before the election they will be seen as being the ultimate softcocks bowing to the media and opinion polls.  An election will be called straight away if the Indies don’t immediately switch sides and the ALP will be thoroughly smashed…you’re dreaming if you don’t think the LNP and media will wheel out all the old Rudd attacks again.

The ALP need to stay the course with Gillard and push back hard.  Now is the time to get stuck in.  Any time some media arse-clown throws specious bullshit at you return it back with a healthy serve of contempt and derision.  Don’t award them the respect they don’t have…if the MSM is not playing fair don’t play their game.  Get some decent media people on board and use the new media.  Go for viral videos with a bit of punch…viral videos always get on the news.  Above slap down all furphys the Opposition put out viciously and thoroughly.

The time to be fair and pleasant is over.  It’s time to bring out the warrior.  Bring on the scorched earth.

It’s the end of the world as we kn…wait hang on a second!!!

Just as the Mayan calendar “predicts” the end of the world this year, the Tony Abbott calendar earmarked the 1st of July as the end of the world in Australia and in particular Whyalla would be “disappearing off the map”.

To the surprise of abosultely no-one with a functioning synapse nothing of the sort has happened. Of course if you listened to the media the latest round of polling, coincidentally taken BEFORE the “tax” came in had most people believing that they would be worse off and that it was a bad idea yada yada yada.  How anyone would know this without actually experiencing it is something that should have immediately got everyone calling this for the massive bullshit that it is, but when you are in the thrall of the media pantswetters in their search for the next stick to beat the Government you know this is not going to happen.

The fact that Abbott made his ridiculous statement about Whyalla should be a gift for the Government.  They should be running vision of his statement coupled with photos of Whyalla at every opportunity, highlighting him for the useless prick he really is.

The time to expect the public to accept fact instead of the media/LNP driven ficiton we are exposed to is over.  The Government needs to start pushing back hard, highlighting every single ridiculous statement made against the carbon tax and highlighting it.  The sooner the public start to realise how hideously incompetent the Opposition is the better and now is the time to start.

Though please, no more Skyhooks covers Mr Emerson.
