Team spelled ‘me me me’

I cannot remember when I have experienced this much schadenfreude. As a rule I avoid the emotion as I see it as destructive, but for HoWARd I’m making a big, fat exception and you know, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Merely, 2 days after Howard the retiree and 1 day after Team HoWARd we get this.

“The opinion polls do indicate that my level of personal popularity is quite high, given I’ve been prime minister for 11 and a half years, it really is. In fact, my level of personal support is significantly higher than that of the party’s. If the party’s level of support in the opinion polls was as high as mine is, well, we’d be a different story.” Team HoWARd spokesman – John W.

My thinking on this is, YAY, I’m being helped by the enemy in bringing the enemy down…

So, keep up the good work guys.

    Team? Dog-team.

    It will be interesting to see what political entity arises from the ashes of the former Liberal Party.

    One of the good things is that Australians will no longer have to explain to foreigners that in Australia, unlike the rest of the world, the word Liberal means anti-progressive, anti-competitive [what? don’t tell me you still believe their propaganda?], repressive, anti-liberty, anti-family, anti-patriotic, anti-religious [unless a religious cult can deliver a huge block of votes to them]; anti-development, pro-oligopoly, inefficient and obsessional.

    So what is the most appropriate name for historians to give to the period from 1944 to 2008 – from Menzies to Howard? How about THE SHAME?

    Oh my Graham…will this be the election when the rest of Australia see HoWARd for what he is and votes him out.

    I will be voting HoWARd out!

    So what do we call the post-Howard era? The Reconstruction? Or, more appropriately, The Time Of Reparations? [when all the chooks of geopolitical blunders and economic misrule came home to roost].
