EPISODE #276 – Where’s Wally?… ummmm, Pete…?!

A question heard whispered on the lips of those in the corridors of power; where’s Pete? You see dedication to duty is an important thing. Look at history; Custer stood to the last man, Constantine XIth died as his city fell around him, and of course Leni Riefenstahl – Hitler’s mouthpiece. Now of course Leni then stated she had no ideological attachment to the Nazis. Her films and writings however differed greatly – and like Pete this week – when a better invitation comes along, flees leaving his fellow troops to hold the line. His throne was left empty in anticipation of his return, at times of need the rank and file looked for his light – but alas. Where’s the love… where is the love – Fergie-style!

In the ongoing election coverage, we were very pleased to be joined by Senator Steven Conroy, Shadow Communication Minister, all ’round knowledgeable guy and champion ten-pin bowler. Didn’t know that did you? Huh, well that’s because i made it up!! Senator Conroy was actually really impressive!! He knew his stuff, he didn’t mince his words when it came to the legacy of the Howard Junta, and he used K-Rudd in context! All praise… Not everything he said went unchallenged, especially the internet filter, but overall his knowledge was both impressive and his obvious interest stood out of over Helen Coonan Cheddar. Nice work Senator – happy to have you back any time! Maybe you can explain this internet filter to Richard…

So the Police now have more powers – well not so much more powers, but they’re just keeping the powers they were supposed to have temporarily during APEC. Don’t you just love ‘temporary powers’! In fact the riot powers that weren’t used at Cronulla (too many white people may have been hurt) are now permanent – so next time the 16 year old next door has a party and it’s still going at 1am, call in the Blue Bombers and tell them there’s a riot. They still need an excuse to use that $600,000 water cannon… In fact these new powers now make it possible for Police to search cars… and aircraft. Now there you go, we only knew it was a matter of time till pigs could fly!

The Libs held their policy launch this week amongst a sea of white faces and glittering jewellery. Suffice to say the real stand out for Little Johnny and his Junta of Hate was the backing music they used. So much so that Richard, always one to dig deep (oh no, hold on, that’s “go deep”) did some investigating. The back music, so boring, so wishy-washy… Michael Bolton!!! Yep, the mullet himself! Fresh from no one buying his CDs, he’s now “Crooning for Johnny”. The most interesting thing about the policy launch was the missing 4 letter word; IRAQ. Yes, they didn’t mention it! As Australian servicemen die, the ruling government couldn’t even bother to pay tribute to those who they sent on an illegal war. No, let’s not mention it!! Let’s gloss over it – like they now gloss over aborigines, refugees, the poor and the disabled! Nice work… The one thing they also glossed over is Peter Costello’s remarks that the economic prosperity had more to do with Keating government reforms than Costello’s own policy! Oh Pete – guess who won’t be PM now!!!

Richard’s version of Hey Mr President highlighted the lesbian couple on the current Amazing Race. Apparently their exit made bigger headlines in the US than any political story. Well it certainly covered up for Hillary Clinton’s crappy record and run for the White House.

Thanks to New Weird Rant we also brought you a snippet of an interview Andrew did with Independent Candidate for Bennelong Graeme Cordiner. Do Independent Candidates help the democratic process or just divide the vote? You decide!!!

To wrap this Pete-Free edition of the show up, K-Rudd’s Facebook has become SO popular that they had to start a new page. In fact as of 22/11/2007 he had 20,100 extra friends on Facebook! So there used to be an election poll on Facebook – guess what? It’s gone!! Bugger – last time we looked K-Rudd was 75% and Little Johnny was 25%… oooops.

Fuck O Meter this week was obviously influenced by Pete not being there…
