Kelly Anne Conway’s Husband George
Ross Leigh and Andrew Bolt are one and the same have you ever seen them in a room together? (ODT)
One of my pet hates is people who respond to the headline and don’t actually read what I’ve written. Yes, yes, I know that one can argue that headlines should actually reflect what one is writing but I have three problems with this:
Often the headline isn’t chosen by the person writing.
I’ve found that people tend to read headlines that they disagree with more often than ones they agree with. For example, “Why Tony Abbott Was Australia’s Greatest PM” will get more views than “Why Tony Abbott Overachieved Given He Became PM With A Total Lack Of Charm Or Intelligence!”
I’m often writing satire.
So, just to annoy people who don’t read beyond the title, I’ve decided to call this one “Drilling The Great Barrier Reef For Oil”.
As far as I know, there is neither oil anywhere near the Great Barrier Reef nor any proposal to look for any potential drill sites…
There is no point pretending it is going to be OK it is not going to be OK
This motley gang of swindlers and liars can’t even coordinate a fresh batch of relatively simple fiction without crashing into each other — much like, when one adds Rudy Giuliani, a Three Stooges routine.
Few of us silly old duffers had a bloody clue about “franking credits” until Tim and cousin Geoff started jumping up and down championing the unique advantage of owning shares with “franking credits”. And how good is Australia … the only country in the world to offer a cash reward!
But hearing that Sportsbet has already paid out on a Labor win, I had to wonder if the media are going to stick to their “It’s just too close call” line, or whether they say that there’s always Brexit and Donald Trump to make us a little circumspect, but Saturday may end up being an early night.
His father was a developer paying his taxes what did his son say to him? (ODT)
Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che took apart Trump, his enablers over on Fox “News” and the Senate, and his unhinged rally in Florida during their Weekend Update segment last night.
To paraphrase Oscar Wilde: “We all born in the gutter, but Rupert Murdoch has made billions by telling us to look at the ones from Fox studios and then go back to the gutter and read my newspapers!”

President at work, wanting his Fake Russian Followers back on Twitter. The Bots Vlad and Olga have been fans since 2016 (ODT)
I should have never worried about a closed-door meeting between Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Donald Trump, because I should have known that the only Important Thing to Trump is the fact that he’s lost followers.
Perhaps Trump lost followers when Twitter removed the 5,000 bots unleashed to bash the Mueller report last week, which appeared to be connected to the Saudi Arabian government. Perhaps people are just tired of seeing his whining ways in their timelines.
