OK so I'm starting to relax...

I can't say that I'm as confident as Bill Leak, but yesterday's newspoll and a very polished performance in the debate on Sunday has me feeling much more sanguine about Rudd's chances. Gotta love the internet! Andrea and I have been able to follow almost all the key news online with most of the ABC's tv content eventually turning up on streaming video somewhere. Happy days! Perhaps we are more concerned to see Howard finally get his comeuppance - I know Andrea insists that an especially dismal corner of hell has been reserved for Howard and Ruddock as a result of the Tampa/Children Overboard travesty and I tend to agree. Perhaps the pair will be damned for all eternity to sit through video highlights of Rudd's cheesy smile. Better still the footage of Rudd's election night victory speech on endless repeat! Ok so I am getting a little ahead of myself but I still have vivid recall of Keating's famous "this is the sweetest victory of them all" speech in claiming victory in March 1993 - that was a long time ago for this poor political junkie. It's time for a repeat performance.

Hey ho - just thought I'd leave a comment so you know someone is reading this! Don't know if you heard about Peter Garret's goof on the weekend/friday - he mentioned to an AM talkback host (Steve Price of all people if you know his work) that labour would just 'change everything once they got in' in reference to their 'ME Too' politics (Ithink he was just joking but still...). Of course he got on talkback radio and told the world (well western sydney anyway). Now theres bumper stickers and what not featuring the quote. The thing that really cracks me up about this whole story though is that Today show enetertainment reporter Richard Wilkens was also party to this conversation. He breaks all the big stories!!
