A FINE DAY FOR MEDIA, BUT A FOUL DAY FOR US
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
It’s six in the morning and there are ants in the sink and an ominous leaden sky forecasting a nasty storm. Polls start closing in America in a couple of hours. We went out for Chinese last night and the kids didn’t sleep due to an overdose of MSG, so everyone is dead beat and picking a fight.
I’m searching outside now for a shaft of light between the nimbus clouds that might indicate some sort of religious intervention... but there is nothing, and the birds are not chirping.
I tried praying and that didn’t work because the dog went nuts so now I’m left waiting on Florida results to administer the coup de grace to the Don... and that will send him and me into deep depression.
It will need a major miracle and there hasn’t been too many of them around lately. Even loyal PPers have fallen short on rogationary supplication.
So now I am wandering back inside muttering “shit, poop, f..k, bugger” and I switch on CNN to a sea of smug faces. Even the normally optimistic Fox presenters look distressed as America moves to reward borderless political bastardry while Europe is moving to condemn it.
And there hasn’t been one damned vote counted yet! But we did our best!
Thanks for trying anyway fellas.
