Malcolm Turnbull grabs shovel before Peter Costello’s body is even cold.

with 4 comments

Peter Costello has finally demonstrated the kind of leadership that the Liberal Party has sorely needed, by abandoning them to go to a BBQ… with high odds that he’ll be working for a major investment house within the next 12 months I’ll bet. Still, it’s only fair that somebody profit from the suffering he causes.

With Costello’s furrowed brow also goes the anointment spat from on-high by Long Gone John. No matter, humourless ass-hat Malcolm “I’m gonna take your balls and go straight home” Turnbull has thrown his hat in the ring, according to this article. Question is, when an ass-hat throws his hat in the ring, who gets to pull it back out? My bet is that he’s going to come out as deputy, but who to?

And who cares? They’re all skanks. Point is that the next leader of the Liberal Party will be someone who actually understands that they’ll never be Prime Minister (or President) of Australia. They’re just the ice-breaker who’ll get disembowelled by their own support-base after they lose the next election (if they’re allowed to stick around that long).

Hang on…. Why am I even writing about this? Let’s face it – Australia won, they’re screwed, schadenfreude now comes in community-sized buckets, and HA HA!!

  2. so you’re not actually from his office? Sweet.

    You know what’s really funny about the Liberal Party disappearing up its own backside – all the evil little back scene Gremlins are coming to the fore. I knew of Christopher Pyne, but had never actually heard him. O MY GOD – and people think Alexander Downer thinks and talks like royalty? Jeeezuz! This guy is an absolute tosser. Am betting that Andrew Robb sounds similar.

  3. I have always considered Peter Costello as the natural leader of the country and told him so personally when he visited Tasmania before the election, I also personally pushed his barrow at every opportunity and even offered advice for what it was worth, with the sad realisation that, that which i conveyed to him over some years (likely trashed by his minders) has come to fruition.
    The problem seems to be that he does not have the self confidence or knowledge that all the smart thinkers and money is behind him ,also Rudd is petrified should he have aspirations to those ends ! as come next election should the Libs have gathered their troops about Costello, the performance of the Labor rabble has been such that they would have suffered the ignomious fate of being the shortest rein in history.
    I am seventy years old and have avidly followed politics for most of those years , and have also picked every election since the early sixties and if Peter does not pick up the reins “right now” ! the Liberals as a political force will not survive! having already lost good men, especially those of the calibre of “Mal brough”,and “Downer” who will also be sadly hard to replace in his position of forein minister ! a position to which he was well suited, having built up an enviable reputation.
    Many good liberals such as Tony Ferguson have lost their seats to nonentities which is a terrible waste of hard working constituates.
    Such is the fickle hand of fate and of the Australian public who are now seriously considering just what they have done !

  4. Yep, restoring the rights of workers, genuinely beginning the long overdue process of reconciliation in such a manner that international acquaintances have since followed suit, finally involving Australia in the necessarily global move toward dealing with the greatest planetary crisis in recorded history. They’ve really botched it, hey Don?
    Peter Costello is a truly visionary leader, though – especially in the way that he assumed that anybody working as treasurer should end up running the country. After all, it worked for Howard and Keating, why not he of no lip, no tip, and no spout.
    The only good thing about Alexander Downer being Foreign Minister was that we kept him out of the country as much as possible, always with the chance that his plane would crash or that he would be bombed. Unfortunately, this did also mean over a decade of this country being represented on the wordl stage by a giant pre-schooler, complete with baby fat, pout, and lack of insight.
    And like all the COALition supporters, you’re kidding yourself Don. Any kind of credible polling (news.com aside) shows 65+ per cent support for the bulk of the federal ALP’s major policies and initiatives.
