One Of These Men Will Wake Up Sunday Morning A Total Loser
Interesting photo. Note the handshake. Kevin Rudd's gone for the dominant, intimidation grasp, with his thump on top, pressing down on John Howard's hand, pinning him, which is a good way to sum up the entire campaign, or the whole year in fact.
Both John Howard and Kevin Rudd have supplied news.com.au with last ditch pitch columns to win your vote....unless you're voting for The Greens, or the Shooters Party. And let's face it, who isn't?
Not much new in either column, but Rudd definitely wins the battle of the headlines :
Howard : There Is No Risk-Free Change Of Government
Well duh. Snoooze.
Rudd : What's The Point Of Voting For Howard?
A two party, winner-takes-nearly-all-election like ours guarantees that either Kevin Rudd or John Howard will suffer a soul-crushing, spine-cracking, head-melting, brain-frying, spirit diluting defeat.
Which is great fun, if both of them give you the absolute shits.
The best part is when the loser has to front the media and try to act like they don't feel as though they've been run over by six consecutive road trains.
You will probably see John Howard cry if he loses. And Alexander Downer cry. And Peter Costello cry. Tony Abbott, meanwhile, will just look like he has eaten twelve raw kittens and is looking for more.
There will be no federal election live-blogging here. I do have a life. There may be an update early Sunday morning, but no promises on that.
Remember, if anyone tries to intimidate or threaten you on your way in to casting your vote, you are legally allowed to kick them. Probably.
