Irony upon irony is setting the scene in Australia following controversy over Kevin Rudd's visit to a New York Strip club- an event he was apparantly too pissed to remember.
First of all, where are the feminists attacking such a blatant sexist act, of Rudd exploiting those poor working girls, as he visited Scores on a taxpayer funded junket?
Apparantly for ALP members, it's all right, no matter how much they talk about their Christian family values.
Then, late yesterday came news of that great Aussie defender of worker's rights against the evil Howard regime- Fairfax Media- has sacked a blogger- the award-winning Jack Marx of the Sydney Morning Herald- for a satirical post imagining what might have happened on that fateful club visit.
All this is great fun for Aussie blogger Tim Blair and his many readers, relishing such controversy, as much as we are at No Minister.
Somone even digs up a speech from Fairfax Media CEO David Kirk talking about free speech to emphasise the ironies and hypocracies over the issue.
At least Fairfax Media in New Zealand can see the funny side, unless Stuff features a new cartoonist today.
Of course, it's all great fun, with Rudd appearing with Kerry O'Brien on the 7.30 report to explain himself, and he has also been linked to another sexclub, this time in Melbourne.
In the meantime, Tim Blair's commenters have dug up a selection of You Tube videos to take the piss out of dear old Kevni.
We have the Chaser's War on Everything with a spoof election advert (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PB3Hlv7rg1M&mode=related&search=) , a bizarre debate in parliament where Rudd is called "a naughty boy" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6PrqA32Bp4&NR=1 ) and an appropriate song- The Bad Touch from The Bloodhound Gang (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTW8oUV8Aq0).
"You and me baby ain't nothing but mammals, so let's do it like they do on the discovery channel..."
Finally, we mustn't forget New Zealand.
Dear Leader has expressed her displeasure, saying that visiting strip clubs is "inappropriate behaviour."
Remember, Labour don't like people making the most of their natural talents, even if they did legalise prostitution.
It is so unfair that some ladies and gentlement can make big bucks from having stunning bodies.
Labour believes in equality, right, so below shows a stripshow for the right on- the Chippendales. Even the Puss-faced Puritanical Princess might approve.
