Crikey says: Who is Australia’s craziest right-wing nutjob?

Abbott’s RAAF gaffe. Queensland “dirty players” in Parli State of Origin. Game of Thrones piracy panic. Mayne on civic service. ISIS explained. The Oz lectures Media Watch on ethics. Family visas dumped. Milne finds a dinner date. And is Tim Blair Australia’s craziest right-wing nutjob? You decide.

They thunder, they stomp, they rejoice, they lament, they shout, they cackle, they cry! There's never a non-emotional moment in the lives of Australia's right-wing old man brigade, whose sense of restraint lost all capacity during the last decade. Only one of them, however, can reign as our leading harbinger of doom. Only one can stand above all others as the king of the crazies, while the others look on and ask, "when was he retiring again?" In the search for this nation's most unhinged agitator, let the CrikeyPoll decide! (With thanks to Tim Blair.)

    Poor Tim barely registers on the Crazy King poll.

    Frightbats was such click bait though and it was sad to watch everyone pile onto the hook all night on twitter.

  2. Delerious

    Bit sexist… where is Miranda Devine or Albrechtsen?

  3. Michael

    What about Cory Barnardi (from outside the media)?

  4. AR

    Diff’rent pokes for diff strokes? How to choose the most noxious? WoodyH’s line in “No Country..” seems apposite, “..compared to what, bubonic plague?”

  5. Electric Lardyland

    Interesting state of affairs, when Alan ‘the talking melanoma’ Jones, may not actually win this poll.

    These are mostly, if not all, front men who deliver their vitriol after being promised: You’ll be very well looked after.

    Who are the powers behind them?

  7. Maisie

    Maybe you could do another poll on who is most dangerous. It may not be the same person as the most crazy.

  8. Rohan

    Grace Collier or Rowan Dean.

    Maybe not craziest, but definitely stupidest.

    I note that all of them but Andrew Bolt live in Sydney. Is there something about the water?
