The Smear O’ Meter

There’s just nothing quite like a good smear. The latest addition to the Shock-O-Rama circus is the revelation that Rudd needed a valve change. If you stick your head out the window, I’m sure you’ll be able to smell the public outrage at Rudds deceptive omission hanging thick in the air. No? Quite. But none-the-less, […]

And Thus Spake Newspoll

My humblest apologies for the delay on the Newspoll low-down; I’ve been organising a few things for the election and will have an announcement about that soon (insert mysterious music) When the Newspoll rolled out on Monday night, I was expecting to wake up to headlines reading “Howard poised to take Denison” or some equally […]

It comes from a Sky News transcript of […]

Just a site note

My Meebo IM is playing silly buggers.Unless it actually says that I’m online, I’ll never see a word you say. Email or the contact page would be your best bet.

Capitulation

Thanks to the good people over at Crikey, the internal Liberal polling and analysis that the Murdoch tabloids were banging on about a few months back has been released to all. It’s a pity the journos didn’t seem to understand a word of it when it was delivered into their hot little hands, but now […]
