Graphical Manipulations #53: Presidents, Weaponry, Lies, Swearing Ins, Rats And Damn, Damn Damn!

Another week has come, and gone!  And the chase to find something worthy of comment in a media unfrenzy becomes increasingly difficult as the post election frentics collapse into a post-coital like exhaustion and recovery fag! (Oh! Sorry! I understand smoking after sex is no longer de rigeur!).  Our new government has become remarkably reticent to front up and tell our media (and us for that matter) precisely what they’re up too, apart from hacking and slashing in the climate area and doing likewise with senior Public Servants who’ve demonstrated that they are prepared to work committedly on such policy areas as Anthropogenic Global Warming and Climate Change, and fiscal rectitude.  You know, the really important stuff, rather than to work diligently on STOPPING THE BOATS, TURNING THE BOATS, BUYING THE BOATS and now HIDING THE BOATS – the really super, super important stuff.  Ah well! Such is life in the Public Service under a new cut, cut, cut govmint!

Such a dearth of political politicality lead to forays elsewhere and to other opportunites portrayed in various Graphics gleaned from that universal infotainer, the www!  A graphic of Afghanistan’s President Karzai, thoughts of The Beatles and of US dollars (similarly to Rubles) being poured into a country for negligible results led to;

Kharzais Secret

And then the graphic of an invention which paralleled the way back when invention of gunpowder, iron and throwing explosive projectiles at another so that you could render them somewhat dead, and, the thorough modernity of transistors, electronics and computer programming being placed in convenient juxtaposition led to;

Range that Mortar

The mind then wandered back to contemplation of Oz and a weird gut feel that the country may very well have elected one of the most crass Federal Government’s that it might have, past or present, and the strange reluctance of acquaintances to commit to clear declarations of who they voted for produced;

Aussie Embarrassment

Such thoughts led to our new government’s immediate activity to rid us of that nasty Carbon Tax and this;

Climate Crap

And then to all the gender hoo haa over there being only one member of the female of the species in Tony ‘Jubya’ Abbott’s cabinet of Howard left-over’s and to how that might be redressed without getting too many ‘wimmin’ on board;

Gender Surgery

Naturally Scott Morrison was out and about pontificating and spouting gobbledegook to explain why the new guvmint wasn’t going to tell us about boat arrivals because it was now all kinda strategic and VERY STRATEGICALLY IMPORTANT and IMPORTANTLY STRATEGIC OPERATIONALLY, SPEAKING STRATEGICALLY!  And we thought Kevin Rudd was unbelievably obtusely verbiose!  And then we finally figured out how those nasty little boats would be stopped;

Stop the boats

Moving on to the swearing in ceremony for the new NO Coalition government, the group graphic for the fawning media presented an opportunity to be derogatory, purely from a non-conservative perspective;

Credible Govmint

And having the Federal Cabinet all grouped together suggested other groupings and led to that descriptive turn of phrase, the collective noun;

Collective Nounery

At this juncture the ever mirthful Rat popped out from the colony to deliver his usual;

Sporting Rat

All of which culminated in thoughts about the current inability to accept the inevitable, that Oz had elected a conservative government of, as yet, unknown intent primarily because a bunch of Labor nongs had forgotten the adage; ‘disunity is death’!  And that led to;

How could they do that


And there we have it (sans the usual end bit now that it’s all over until the next time or earlier if there’s a double dissolution sometime in the next 12 to 18 months especially of Jubya Abbott gets really pissed off by a recalcitrant and obstructionary Senate)!

  4. Poor child, she’s just had her first glimpse of the Jubya-wocky with its jaws that bite, claws that catch…
    You’ve raised a good point D, only two weeks after the election and finding people who’ll admit to voting for Abbott seems to be more difficult than finding rocking-horse shit. As Auspol observed, this may be the first government not to have a honeymoon period.
