…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
Now that the Kokoda survivor* was forced to declare the elections, the benighted Australian public will be subject to many “fair” shakes of his snake oil bottle.
As told by Mario Puzzo, perhaps truthfully, the US mafia families would “go to mattresses” during their territorial wars. If you had forgotten “The Godfather”- it means that the men would move out of their homes and take up temporary accommodations, unfurnished, thus mattresses, to fight the battles and skirmishes without involving their women folks. But they were the men, not the Australian Labouristas, who hide behind their mothers, or in the case of [Gillard, behind fathers]. (As the conviction rates may show, the difference between the two mafias is only slight.)
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, or, as his wife of many years would call him, “Kick-Arse-Kevin”, when announcing his latest and so original brain-wave, i.e. increased taxing of tobacco, said: “I’m the son of a woman who never smoked in her life and she died of lung cancer, we assume through passive smoking.”
Like Obama fabricated his composite girlfriends in his many autobiographies, perhaps similarly narcissistic Rudd created a composite family. On another occasion, on the World Parkinson’s Day he told the world that his mother suffered from it. As if that was not enough “Mrs Rudd was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1963 and eventually had a mastectomy. The cancer, however, came back in 1973, but Mrs Rudd died of ‘unrelated causes’ in 2004. We know all this because her son Kevin shared it with us in a 2008 speech that he’s probably forgotten about. “(Phillipa Martyr – The mother of all shameless spinners)
It is sad that Mr Rudd’s mother died. She was then 84 years old. The value for life expectancy at birth, female (years) in Australia was 84.10 as of 2011. Passive smoking? That “man” is shameless.
I originally wanted to describe Rudd’s behaviour as “low-class”. But that would be insulting the low-class, and, after all, only socialists rely on and hope for a class war. The “low-life” is far more appropriate.
*/ Kevin Rudd dubbed himself a Kokoda survivor. For our American readers – it is akin to you describing yourselves as a “Pearl Harbour survivors” because you visited semi-sunk Arizona while hollidaying in Hawai. Kevin Rudd may or may not have walked the Kokoda Trail. Anything he says is suspect. The descendants of FuzzyWuzzies may tell us one day if they had to carry him.
