Update, 24 July 2007:
She's still licking. I can hardly believe it. Do any Labour supporters want to drop by and tell me they really don't believe Benson Pope was engaging in the most pathetic and transparent lying last night when he claimed his senior staff acted without his knowledge? And if it wasn't a transparent lie, any explanation for how such an incompetent retains a cabinet position?
I can't believe there are suckers out there willing to vote for this.
Original post, 21 July:
Based on the story this morning that Helen Clark is backing Benson Pope over his latest successful foray into dipping Labour in shit, you can only wonder:
How did Clark get to be his bitch?
He really must know where the bodies are buried, so Clark can't touch him - it's the only possible explanation for how this arrogant useless dumbass, who's brought nothing to Labour beyond a succession of outrageous, vote-losing, self-inflicted scandals, can not only still be in Cabinet but actually getting Clark's support.
I mean, does anyone else have an even remotely plausible explanation?
