Straight From The Hillary Clinton Playbook

Shorten/Clinton lost unloseable elections because both candidates were dogs and both campaigns were strategically flawed.

Labor spent hundreds of thousands on getting rid of Tony Abbott and in doing so left insufficient funding to effectively campaign in the other half dozen marginal seats they needed to win.  They won the battle but lost the war.

Further, they elevated climate change as their number one issue when exit polls showed voters ranked climate change at number five.

Australians showed they don't want as PM a nasty little bastard who shafted the very workers he  was paid to represent.

Australians showed they don't want as PM a nasty little bastard who fakes Christianity and then publicly denigrates the genuine Christian faith of his opponent.

Australians showed they don't want as PM a nasty little bastard who is credibly accused of rape.

Australians showed they don't want as PM a nasty little bastard who tried to shove the climate change hoax down their throats.

And now, less than a day after their humiliation, Labor people are blaming the Murdoch press for their defeat.

If Labor had replaced Shorten six months ago with Albanese, right now Albanese would be PM.

And by the way, why would anyone ever again pay good money for opinion polls?

Could it be there is consensus around climate change? The election result shows the public are over it @nd don’t want to spend their taxes on spurious efforts to limit a life gas.

The right are always sooo gracious in defeat and magnanimous in victory. Or perhaps surly and gloating?

Tom Hunter said...


Generous in forgiving an insult or injury; free from petty resentfulness or vindictiveness:
High-minded; noble:
Proceeding from or revealing generosity or nobility of mind, character, etc.:

Pleasantly kind, benevolent, and courteous.

Gosh, it all sounds wonderful. But I can't say I've seen much of that from you Hal on this blog. Perhaps you could you give us some linked examples of your Lefty graciousness on the nights Key, Trump or Cameron won, as well as your Lefty magnanimity in past victories on nights like Obama's election wins in 2008 and 2012, or Adern's in 2017.

Because I'll bet your just chock-full of graciousness and magnanimity, amirite?

With forthright and astute clarity, Bill Shorten has revealed the real reason Labor lost.

"We didn't get enough votes."

We nearly got this dumbarse for Prime Minister!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hal said...

Well it’s all relative isn’t it Tom?

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Amusing to note the media and pollsters have cleaned out the Turnbullista traitors from the Liberal party. They all scuttled away because they couldn't bear to be in opposition. Now Scott Morrison doesn't have to get rid of them. Now he has a free ride to take the party back to its roots.

Happy days!

Right, well since our usual Lefties have provided little to no analysis of the Aussie election and since I can't comment on it much, here's long-time political analysts Arthur Chrenkoff with The autumn of our minor discontent: 24 thoughts on the Aussie election.

He admits he predicted Labor would win. But I was especially struck by this passage, which is actually a quote from the Director of Thiel Capital

A) Mainstream commentators decide amongst themselves that right-of-center positions are only held by a bad fringe.

B) Voters then lie to pollsters in response.

C) A vote is held.

D) Same commentators switch to complaining about dangers of “populism”.

Tom Hunter said...

Shades of Hillary standing under that glass ceiling with this...
Bill Shorten is so confident he will win the federal election that he sent Prime Minister Scott Morrison a letter urging for a 'smooth transition of power'


What a gigantic cock! More like a smooth transition to the knackers yard.

Isn't it interesting that there is nothing on Stuffed about the Aussie election?

Paulus said...

Middle Australia said they do not like higher taxes and climate change waffle.
And little shits like Shorten, full of his own importance.
Our Cinderella should wake up and accept the Australian result and consider that, if she is still around, Middle New Zealand will kick her hard in 2020.
