The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Honest, straightforward and coherent – Rudd 1, Costello -1

As far as tonight’s TV interviews go Rudd came across as honest, stright forward and coherent. On Lateline, Costello came on like a man possessed, thumping the desk, over-excited, eyes popping and dodging questions with relish. A vote for Rudd is a vote for Keating! The man is losing it. Qelle embarrassment! Time to stop digging Pete.

I commented on the weekend that this will blow over in a week. It’s a ploy by Howard to scrape a few points off in the polls, thereby buying some breathing space from pressure on his leadership. A Newspoll from the weekend has lifted Labor another 3 points two-party preferred, so expect the issue to die quickly and for increased focus on the leadership of Howard and Costello.

Australia is not impressed by these desperation tactics. It looks like it’s back-firing. Honesty is not a good campaign issue for Howard et al.
