Why can't I write Fox News-style headlines and stories on an Australian blog? I can, and I will.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, or Krudd as he is covertly known by the 'wired-up' generation who are champing at the bit to sit on death panels to weed and cull the ranks of future national wealth-absorbing Baby Boomers (unless a Liberal Party government wins the early 2010 elections and John Howard returns, Menzies-style, to shepherd them into senility) is now inviting the digitally-enhanced hordes of Generation Y to help him design future Labor policy.
It's true! The most nightmarish future fear of all Baby Boomers has already come spine-chillingly true. Goths & Emos are deciding how to run the country.
If you were Prime Minister for a day - what would you do to :
- help our young people grow up safe, happy and resililient
- give young people the skills they need to learn, work and fully engage in community life ?
- reduce the physical and mental health risks facing young Australians, including negative body image, anxiety and depression, obesity and alcohol-fuelled violence?
- enable young people to accept responsibility for their actions and their behaviours?
- help young people to negotiate the challenges of today's society?
How can Kevin Rudd run the country when he can't even master SpellCheck? If what the Liberal Party is saying is true about what the K Rudd Krew is doing to this nation (and let's face it, when have The Liberals ever lied [?]), the Goths & Emos probably can't do any worse.
But maybe the prime minister himself didn't write that piece on his blog today. Maybe it was a staffer? Maybe Krudd's emo-advisor?
The prime minister is already sending people scurrying for their dictionaries (or as the digital youth call them "those word things") on a near daily basis without him going and making up words.
Even quite catchy words like Resililient.
UPDATE : On Twitter, I tried to blackmail the prime minister using the screencap of his misspelling of 'resilient'....
...but I decided instead to go pubilc with it fro the glood of th natoin.
