Today's Blunty, about the coming annihilation of the ALP gives us this comment from Mintslice, which should probably be graven into rock somewhere:
The fact that K Rudd is most loved by people who have had nothing to do with him speaks volumes.
His baffling appeal among witless suburban voters reflects the reality that very few soccer moms or tradies at home watching The Block at night have had to deal with this kind of elite psychotic bureaucrat in their life times.
I have. He creeps me out on so many levels. Hes like Lord Varys from Game of Thrones without the balls.
I completely understand the ALP's apparent preference for self immolation.
Rudd was the master of his own demise - when, in the finest control freak elite public servant fashion he thought he could engineer a mining tax without consulting industry.
Any sane person might thing that people you are regulating can have some productive input into the process, even if they dont like the outcome, but this sneaky little prick thought he could just spring it on them - as if governing by surprise with an inner circle of 24 year olds is any way of running the country.
Hes been scuttling around in the dark like a cockroach ever since, spreading shit and disease in the hope that he'll be the last roach left after the fallout settles.
Mark Latham is completely right about this guy. Rudd is an evil little snake hiding behind Jesus - as the worst of them always do.
The "affable nerd" routine shouldn't fool anyone with a modicum of life experience - but we're talking swinging voters here - the very definition of brain death.
Rudd has done a remarkable thing - he's given me a sense of perspective that there is something worse than the appalling white trash baiting Frat Boy vibe of Tony Abbott.
