    Living proof that wealth and seniority are no guarantees of self-awareness or wisdom.

    While I’m all for an eventual gradual reduction in the number and frequency of random murders using military weapons, I certainly don’t think we should go so far as to codify the notion that the old wrinkly head in a jar Rupert really does rule the world.
    I dream of a world where good people make the decisions.

    2013 Walkley winner. You heard it here first folks

    That’s a truly stunning drawing of invisible *crickets in frame 5 FD.

    I wouldn’t share a lift with either of them.

    I recall Rupe had some concern over global warming a while back but the Faux News team neglected to take the bait. Is the monster he created out of control…

    Of course, Malcolm Turnbull will want a bit of that Walkley.

    Just noticed the marvellous subtlety of the two out trays. Firsty scores another ace.

    Notification that the shadow ministry for misinformation, planning and negativity ran at a $450M loss this year.
    When will politicians find the courage to ban automatic negativity, dishonesty and misinformation? As in America; similar tragedy after last election.

    “Former governor and Republican candidate Mike Huckabee blamed the violence on the removal of God from schools, while commentator Ann Coulter tweeted that so-called ”concealed carry” reduced the murder rate.”

    I don’t remember the removal of God from schools – did they do that during the holidays?

    @ Holden #1, who needs wisdom when you’ve got that much moolah?

    Zut #8 – for bonus points, if the name plate on his desk says “Roger” on the front does it say “Me” on the back? And if so, has he been?
