Latham seems to be enjoying his holiday back in the spotlight. He’s thrown all his toys out of the cot, and he doesn’t care who knows. So far he’s dished dirt on the bulk of his labour caucus, with the notable exception of Julia Guilard (who I have admitted in the past on another blog’s comments, that I find quite hot in some weird kind of way). Little Mark has set a lot of tongues a wagging and damage control from the Labour party seems a tad inadequate at this stage, adding a little credibility to the claims he has made. I was amused that after Latham outed Rudd for being the media whore that he is, Kevin Rudd predictably called a press conference. What your face on telly again Kevin? This is the guy that is so desperate for attention that he features on religious programs.
As the publicity machine gears up, Mark is getting into his stride. This “has been” who’s just happy to stay at home and be a dad is picking his way through the media circus with glee, scattering crumbs of contention. My favourite to date is about the drug habits of our elected law makers. On JJJ he stated, "the pollies are just in the conga-line of choofers". Reefer madness in the House on the Hill. Finally I understand why Johnny’s policies are so twisted. It’s the paranoia caused by the new super skunk addling his little brain, causing him visions.
No wonder the spooks have been given unthinkable powers. Suddenly it all makes sense.
