I think the article rests on the premise that the other side of politics, in contrast to the Right, is gracious in defeat. Many people at the time said that Howard didn't really win in 1998, and that Bush didn't win in 2000. To make out that the Left is gracious in defeat and are above accusations of illegitimacy, and the real hoot that the media is pro-Coalition is laughable.

The pink batts thing is possibly the most trivial major issue ever. At all. I'm sorry, but to say that a government is incompetent because of that is clutching at the thinnest of straws.
Bush is different because there was strong evidence that he didn't actually win - i.e. he did not, in fact, win the most votes in Florida, Gore did. Of course this is all speculation and Bush was eventually delcared the winner but you can't really draw parallels - there, there was a legitimate concern about the veracity of the result, whilst Howard 1998 was just some bitter people having issues with the fact that representative democracy is not a direct democracy and that the majority of the popular vote is totally meaningless in itself.I think the article rests on the premise that the other side of politics, in contrast to the Right, is gracious in defeat.

That is true.and the real hoot that the media is pro-Coalition is laughable.

At least Labor's two biggest campaign batons - Workchoices and policy costings - won't be issues at the next election, courtesy of the Green senate and the Parliamentary Budget Office respectively.
Agree with Social. Walked outside to gunfire and explosions, it's pretty hectic out there.

I'd wee my pants in laughter if Oak**** got electrocuted by the NBN cabling or something- causing a bi-election.
