2 cartoons for the price of 1 today FD.
That “Hypocritic Oath” – how many elections did Slipper win (Fisher) as a “representative of Liberal Party values – when no one knew what he was really like”?
And it’s a good thing Margie told us all, a couple of days ago, in “Murdoch’s Media”, that her Tony’s no misogynist – or he’d be just like the one Tony and his friends are painting now?
[And what a good idea – check those texts – to make sure Slipper’s the only one doing that sort of yukky stuff?
Or as Dutton reminded us on Lateline recently, got as “close” as Emerson and Gillard?]
Well done FD: As I was reading the cartoon I had Julia Gillard, dressed in a turquoise jacket and black pants, doing over the leader of the opposition in style. She looked and sounded like Boadicea, every ringing cadence matching the strength of the ‘toon.
What I meant was it was question time ‘in this place’.
Yeah FD, but geez she looked good kicking that idiot right in the Abbots. Notice not one of his pack jumped to his defence. With their heads firmly planted up their Jonses, the churnalists missed the game and the score and tried to write a manufactured report from the dark recess of their employers prejudice. Ha ha ha look at his face. If she was a wall she would have got such a smackin.
“When he was our sleazebag, he was funny.”
Does Chrissy Wissy ever do anything apart from sucking up to the rancid rabbott and mimicking other people?
At initial glance I thought Firsty had photoshopped three frames of Mt Rushmore. Hard and craggy.
Mmm, finally. Well done, Julia.
And well done, Crikey, on your new format.
Who is TA concentrating on looking like: Daniel Craig, Vladimir Putin or Fabio?
Outstanding stuff, doggie.
Brilliant effort, Dawg Uno. 2nd last frame says it all about where the real hypocrisy lies. Won’t be many single parents (usually women) who can afford to laugh like we do, or be materially inspired by Gillard’s justifiable doing over of Direct Action Man, or harbour any hope that the Libs well give them a better deal. A pox on both their houses.
And I’m sure I can hear a lot of giggling from the local Italian restaurant.
Go doggie go. Just beaut. I’m off to read Ms Alberici and Crabbe to see what the fuss is about.
haha you did say root.
6 months of everyone’s text messages.
They would all have to resign. Could be good..
When he resigned, most of the media was missing “inaction”?
How many of them were “shaking hands with the wife’s best friend” or “sqeezing the lemon”?
Last frame – is “Alah Jones” a Muslim?
BAM! Indeed. Beautifully rendered once again FDOTM.
This is excellent
“Offensive language”? Like hypocrisy?
Ever used that 4-letter “c” word or been on continuing friendly terms with those that have – I bet there a few of these “outraged” politicians now, that fall into that “class” that have?
I bet some have used it to describe others of their “calling”?
“Yeah I smoked it but I didn’t inhale”; the new paradigm translates to “yeah I said it but I spell it a different way”.
Reminds me of the old drovers sitting around a camp fire bragging about how many head of cattle they mustered and transported single handedly. Each bragger outdoing the other until the last bloke says, “well I single-handedly took 300,000 head from Alice Springs to Hobart”. “Bull-shite” said the other drovers, “How did you get across Bass Strait?” they asked; “I didnt go that way” he said.
To me, watching those we elect “to represent us”, across the country, in their various “counting houses” acting as they do, is like watching something between “Fame” (or some other drama academy) & “Pavlov’s dogs – sitting for their finals”?
And I’ll bet there a a lot of these presently outraged one-eyed “c’s”* in our msm (benefitting us – since we can’t be there – having to rely on their edited/framed version of events – from their view of what’s happening) that have fallen into the same category?
[*”commentators” of course!]
KLEWSO: If it will make you feel any better, I got flung off an on line newspaper for using the ‘c’ word. I’ve repented, and am back in the fold. Which is one of the reasons I get so cross with the moderating machine. I really do try to avoid contentious words.
I have to resist the temptation to have T-shirts with ‘botch’ printed to wear out and about in my lovely electorate.
Holden, you’ve inspired me to take the s-xist tack with a t-shirt declaring ‘butch’.
Oh zut, I already have a pair of tees, one ‘butch’ the other ‘b*tch’, depending on my mood. ‘Batch’ and ‘betch’, I leave to greater minds than mine to work out.
