    Abbott – for the next 7 months – never much more than a dummy toss from a “Baby’s R’ Us”?

    Re: Predicting the future by examining old news.
    Amazing! Now we have a computer program that predicts the bleeding obvious. This combination of the interweb thingy and program boffiny-people is truly powerful….

    Nothing makes a politician look more shallow/phoney than the image of them fawning over a baby or small child.

    China’s an economic/ industrial / commercial + military powerhouse. Every Aussie returns home from any shopping expedition with ‘Made in China’on probably ninety percent of purchases! When I was kid: 90 percent would’ve been Aussie manufactured. Doesn’t look good folks! China is a major player on the international loans [$’s etc] game. THEY LOAN: Yanks + Aussies BORROW! WAKE UP! our factories, commerce, the driving industrial force of Australia: Sold TO CHINESE/ OTHER non Aussie ‘players’, often employing Chinese labor, closed or gone into receivership. Apprenticeships in important related areas, dwindling. NOT SO IN CHINA! Our land, thanks to Socialist Supremo Hawke + assorted ‘pollie’ ‘sell out’ likewise: being SOLD, not leased to Communist Chinese Govt! Got kids/ grankids? Be scared, be very scared!….

    Yeh American football = 60 minutes of football and three hours of “salesmanship” – even with the later replays when they could edit it down?
    A lot like 7’s tennis when you think about it? Or the cricket – with their ads for “cooked chook” and hamburgers? Or our sort of football?

    As for Rudd’s suggestion? Never get between an op-ed hack and a chance at a beat-off?
    [Catch Tony Windsor on 7:30 last night suggesting Thomson might be due some “due process” – to an op-ed like Sales?]

    Well, it didn’t take Jessica Irvine long to drop the Fairfax mantra and adopt that of Murdoch. That’s what happens when you start “sleeping with the enemy”!
    And they wonder why we don’t read MSM anymore?

    Yes, she’s been Murdochtrinated.
