Or an incredibly boring dream.
With the two best fighters in the Labor and Liberal parties facing off against each other, I was expecting something a little exciting. Instead, the banality and mediocrity of this federal election campaign is mind-numbing. The plan seems to be ‘no one say anything that might make even one person a little less happy with us’, and that strategy certainly hasn’t worked for the NSW Liberal Party for the last two elections.
Have any real policies been released? Anyone promised anything we didn’t already know about before the election was called?
Instead, we’re getting the really important news: Julia Gillard was questioned yesterday about whether she and Tim Mathieson would get married if they moved into The Lodge.
What. The. Fuck?
I’ve heard a lot of inane questions asked of politicians, but that one is too much. Yet The Australian thought it was worthy of 372 words:
Asked if he would move into The Lodge, Ms Gillard said: “Oh yes, Tim and I live together, wherever I live, he’ll live”.
Ms Gillard was asked later if a wedding to Mr Mathieson might be on the cards soon.
She laughed and brushed the question off.
“Number one, decisions about me getting married are not just made by me, if I could make that point,” she told reporters.
“Number two, decisions in my personal life I’ll make for personal reasons.”
And why is The Australian running a story on Julia Gillard’s earlobes? Is this what we’ve become? No wonder people don’t want us any more.
