Freaking people out

Freaking out Kevin from Louisiana…

My most faithful commenter and sparring partner would have had some kind of conniption had he seen the social pages in today’s Illawarra Mercury, the Wollongong daily.

Oh multicultural Oz, what a wonder you are!

Freaking Tony Abbott — or Tony Abbott freaking the rest of us

It’s the second half that matters. I have never seen anything like it in Australian politics.

I don’t see it as “dignified silence.” I read it as a strong desire, only just repressed, to strangle the reporter with his microphone cord.

I am no fan of Tony, but the story was sleazy and trivial and his anger quite understandable.
