The camera doesn’t lie? Well it certainly can distort. Take this unflattering effort yesterday from the news.com.au website:

To my pictorially untutored eye it is the deliberate result of some strange kind of lens or something. Whatever the reason it was enough to make that preview of this morning’s Newspoll the winner of the daily Chunky Bits Daily Leadership Beat-Up Award.

    Sophie Mirabella has the same problem at The Border Mail. There’s just never a good photo of her . . .

    Please please please do not compare Beppe Grillo’s party with Bob Katter! They are worlds apart! Italy has been run into the ground with corruption, unemployment, tax avoidance, the Eurodollar and poor governance. His so-called populism is more an uprising of the people who cannot take their conditions any more. I hardly think that you can compare those socio-economic conditions with our country, unless you lap up the BS from the murdoch mudrakers who are only interested in regime change!
