|Bitter 'v'n allright!|
The Democrats were pretty well formed to 'keep the bastards honest', but with
the cat-fighting, backstabbing and agreement breaking, who's going to keep the
leadership of the party honest?
Obviously this is what the Andrews are for. Having a single party between the
major parties to keep those bastards honest didn't work out so well when the
leader started sleeping around with them, so rather than have a single mediator
to keep the bitches in the Democrats honest, each of the potential leaders has
been assigned an Andrew. Old fashioned duelists were assigned a man as a
second, but the women in the democrats are more civilized. They have a
man as weapon.
Accordingly, the Andrews have been whining pitifully at each other for the last few days, and
just recently Andrew Murray (Meg's Andrew) has announced that he isn't going to
resign from the Democrats, but he's going to white-ant them from within. He'll
only come to parties if Natasha Stott Despoja doesn't. The Democrats still have
six active senators, but the party is looking more and more dysfunctional.
Of course this has be expected from a party with no actual agenda. The ALP
claim to be socialists (while privatizing and deregulating as fast as they
can), and the Liberal party claim to stand small government and liberty (while
being the highest taxing government in Australia's history and waging an
idiotic war on drugs). But the democrats don't claim to be anything except
.. politically correct.
They have a loose agenda of 'freedom of decision' and 'freedom of speech'
(which apparently does not apply to ex-leaders of the party). But with no solid
base they can only ever hope to grasp at straws of popularity, and be an
expression electoral disgust at the major parties. Further with Natasha
(king-of-castle) Stott Despoja at the helm, the median age of the Democrat
supporters has been dropping dramatically. At this rate it's likely to drop
below the legal voting age, which would pretty much finish them.
But it's all OK, because for now at least they have the Andrews. Two
whining voices of moderation in a dysfunctional party machine lubricated with
Only one question remains: if the Democrats keep the bastards honest, and the
Andrews keep the bitches honest - who's going to keep the Andrews honest?
