INTELLECTUAL WILDERNESS HO, THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

In a previous life I was, it’s fair to say, a political junkie.

I was a regular reader of the commentary section in The Age and The Australian and very rarely missed the ABC’s Lateline program.

Maybe it was Dr Michael Wooldridge’s response to why sanitary products would not be GST exempt “I have to shave every day, you don’t see me complaining” that did it (and I say again, DR Michael Wooldridge).

Then there was the Bush Administration and the rise of the crazy fundamentalist (ooops, sorry I’m meant to say Evangelical) congregations.

Thank fuck we have both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

Because if we all took this shit seriously, we’d need medicating.

Newt Gingrich is having his – count it – 3rd run at the White House and the fact that his campagin is over before it began, is of course, purely the fault of Washington Elites and the Left-wing media.

  1. At the end of the day the majority of the people of this world are moderate, but we have left wing and right wing pollies who tell us how to live our life, because us moderates can’t be bothered going for a cause. We want to live our life and be left alone.
