A Dead Dog's Donger

Adolf recalls a wonderful one liner from Australian politics of the eighties. From memory it might have been Bill Hayden who, in referring to an election win by Paul Keating, said:-

"Labour would have won the election if it had put up a dead dog's donger as leader - and it did."

Perhaps the quote is apocryphal but it's a goodie.

Now the Republicans have their very own DDD.

It sure as hell ain't going to be the black arsed jackass.

Using an anon monicker won't work. Sludge.

'drovers dog' - it was after Hawke rolled him the same day Malcolm Fraser called a snap election (and lost).

'dead dingo's donger' was used about Aussie muso Don Walker's singing style. (in case you don't know, Walker wrote most of Cold Chisel's songs)
