Former John Howard staffer Gerard Henderson confirms he is Australia's most boring columnist, and is keeping himself busy pumping the mythology of his old boss :
No doubt about it. Nine months after the Coalition's devastating election loss, John Howard is looking better. Likewise Peter Costello. So much so that the former prime minister did not seem out of place among political leaders at the Olympic swimming events on Sunday.
...the Howard/Costello legacy seems stronger today than it did on election night.
Stop it, Gerry. Your tongue cannot get any browner, no matter how long or deep you lick.
