    I'd wee my undies if interest rates unexpectedly went up today.

    I'd be happy to cop a full 1% rise for the team.

    It had me closer to Che Guavera than Tony Abbott.

    It had Obama as dead centre.
    Ghandi was the only "good" guy on the left.
    It had Gillard and Abbott both to the right.

    I'm not sure that varying levels of "extremist" should be representative of the left. There have been a number of lefties who have not been extremist - JFK, Clinton, Hawke etc...

    Which electorate? The one he wanted, or the one he tried to abandon?

    "Aussie Larrakin" Tone out and about today.

    Just what the campaign needed - an attempt at a humorous jibe about sexual assault and "no meaning no".

    Typical Labor slur.

    Wondered when you bob your head back up.

    Over the sookies with the Nielsen poll.

    This is war.

    Taking a leaf from you and ignoring poor polls.

    Commie spy Samantha Maiden in the Australian (aka Pravda) thinks it was a shocker too.

    Been busy with Tone and Robb sorting out this week's PPL scheme. It's being put off, we'll never see it.

    Action Man seems a little timid today. He's busy studying economics 101. And failing.

    Apologies for any spelling errors too. I'm typing quickly before the Libs get in and CW, being a web site, is only accessible through two soup cans and a piece of string.

    There's a very good reason why the Libs don't want to "let Abbott be Abbott" this campaign. And to his credit, he is sticking to the Phoney Tony stuff well and good.

    We've worked out the new economy meme though:

    "Fear of jobs breakout as unemployment hits new low".

    "Bad news for investors as interest rates lower than under Howard".

    "Horrible news as inflation under control".

    "Horror as debt levels reach lowest in developed world".

    Edit: and as of this minute - "Glen Stevens partisan political hack as interest rates stay on hold".

    Stick them in yer budgie smugglers. Word is there's quite a lot of room in there.

    Was only joshing.

    He should've been more prudent. I think it will be buried by the interest rate rise in any case.

    On the economy...people associate Rudd with the GFC - not Gillard.

    Labor's got the same poll rating as when Rudd was replaced - but without the benefit of incumbency.

    Tis true.

    Still and all, by far the best thing int he campaign so far is Andrew Bolt threatening to sue Twitter's "Andrew Bolt" for "identity theft". It's brilliant.

    Larissa Waters didn't get enough say for mine. Would have liked to hear a lot more from her. From what she said though, i really hope she gets elected. Certainly like her a lot more than almost all of the Greens that are currently in the Senate.

    ****ing idiot Tone.

    No means no, means you're a knob.

    Fair enough a one-off slip, but why would you repeat it...

    He forgot to have his dawn-time tranquiliser.
