A Good Day's Sport

Adolf has greatly enjoyed the hysterical commentary from Leftist apologists over at Farrar's place today. The new bill board campaign has surely struck a nerve and when Russell Brown tells you it will backfire you know you are onto a winner.

The creme de la creme did not come until later in the afternoon when Adolf was driving and listening to Jim Mora's panel discussion on the EFB. The editor of The Herald came on and had 'an exhange' with pommy lefty Brian Edwards. It was hilarious and Edwards will take a day or two to dig the barbs out from his flesh. He really did make a fool of himself.

If you want to hear it, get the transcripts from RAdio Left Wing's website for the period from about 4.20 through to 4.45.

I'm still laughing.

Obviously no journos read Tane's comment on Kiwiblog, cos 3 News had DPF and his billboards on without bothering to mention he's a Nat activist or asking him where the money was coming from. MSM = right-wing bias.

I guess it was a good day's sport for both of us, Adolf - I've been enjoying right-wingers' outrage over having their anonymous funding choked. All's well that ends well, eh?

As I recall, you guys were full of how you were dead certs to win last time, too. Plenty of wailing and gnashing of teeth for you after that one. Me, I've spent most of my life under govts I didn't like, and learned to stop over-dramatising the fact early on. So no wailing from me if Key's leading a Labour (oops, National) govt by the end of next year: won't make a huge amount of difference, cos govt's always the winner on the day.

Unfortunately the blogosphere seems to consist largely of excitable yoofs convinced they're witnessing the Ultimate Showdown of Good vs Evil. Not much to be done about that though - 'twas ever thus.

PM - I have already figure out a way to get around the anonymous donation thresholds and I bet countless other ways are available too.

This Act is outrageous. I can't say any more than that. If 'rich pricks' want to spend millions of dollars supporting a party that is their prerogative and not one we should be legislating against. Consider this: the Maori Party has no money; spent the least in 2005 and won 5 seats. Act, supposedly, has heaps of money (it doesn't); spent a million or so in 2005 and won 2 seats. Money does not buy votes. Protecting donors who wish to remain anonymous is vital in a functioning democracy, and especially one where the Left are as nasty as this lot are.

Gosh PM, who would have ever though you were proud of NZ's child abuse statistics! There you have it in a nutshell. Excitable yoofs convinced they are witnessing the ultimate showdown between good and evil.

I must confess the excitement this issue has caused is a complete mystery to us on the other side of the Tasman. Not a single newspaper comment or article have I read here. When I raise the issue with family at home it elicits a pretty large yawn as well and yes it does seem a bit like a rerun of the period before the last election when the RW blogsphere had whipped itself into a complete frenzy over nothing much at all.

That said it seems certain Labour is heading for a wipeout next year much like the Howard Government here. Incumbency is no advantage at all when a Government has been in power so long and the wheels have almost certainly fallen off this administration.
