Graphical Manipulations #71: Messiahs, Subterfuge, Goodies N Baddies And That Bloody Rat!

It’s been another a week of NO Coalition idiocy which seems to have been bought about by Cory Bernardi’s foray into the world of authorship and the remainders tables.  There’s been lots of NO Coalition rabid rotweilers rampant on the media stage all pushing their view of reality, doing a bit of fear-generation of minority groups and, well, just being generally ‘out there’ in extremist right-wingish frothing at the mouth.

First out of the block in his eagerness to do something about the alcohol-fuelled [duck here as the alcohol lobbyist spit dummy and blame everything else including society] violence which seems a popular night-time pastime in fair Sydney town came our Bazza, keen to put a lid on the whole issue.  Thoughts of who might be best served by these new laws gave rise (somewhat cynically) to;

Messiah OFarrell

Next off the block was Western Australia’s Premier Colin Barnett with his shark baiting and cull of Noah’s three metres or more in length.  [Shark memo: Make sure you only grow to 2.9 metres!]  Given the flak that the policy has created we thought Col might take a leaf from our Scott Morrison and look seriously at an ‘operational matters’ strategy;

Barnetts Operation Noah

Yes, yes! We know that it’s a FOUR WORD SLOGAN but let me just say as an ex-West Aussie our Premiers’ as well as politicians like Troy Buswell have a tendency to extend the boundaries of sensibility and good taste a tad!

Suffice to say that the exodus from the woodwork and from under various rocks by the various loops of frootery bought the rat rampaging forth with a few enlightening snippets.  So its onya Craig Kelly;

Neo Pagan Rat

And Ken O’Dowd, not to be undone, got our richest mining magnate and epitome of motherhood into the debate with;

Ginas Welfare Rat

And feeling on a roll, Ken was back in there again with his exaggerated viewpoints on dole bludgers with;

ODowd Rat

And the Rat couldn’t go past our intrepid prime minister, he who boldly goes (foot in mouth and brain disengaged) where others fear to tread, who showed the whole world his calibre at Davos with;

Abbott Stimulus Rat

And also let the whole world see his innate grasp of the complexity of world events and the power of well-chosen words.  Awe at his transcendent imminence gave rise to;

Goody Baddy Abbott

And naturally we couldn’t forget (as much as the Government would like us to) our continuing dalliance with OPERATION STRATEGIC STUPIDITY and the subsidiary operation PISSING OFF INDONESIA, especially when our very own Lieut-General Campbell seems to be a bit unsure as to whether he’s on board with the ‘operational matters’ thingy, or not;

Operations Matters Rat

And we couldn’t let The Rat get in the last word on OPERATION STRATEGIC STUPIDITY so we considered how our illustrious Minister for Immigration and Border Protection might be feeling.  And those thoughts resulted in;

Silly Scott Morrison

And after all that, a couple of brandies, and several valium eased the mind and gave the confidence to contemplate the following without hyperventilation and a severe panic attack;

Calm Short n Curlies



Afterthought:  This NO Coalition Government is trashing the good standing of Australia.  It cares little about its people in its fanatical pursuit of ultra-conservative ideology.  It is using the weapons of minority xenophobia, the secret fears and uncertainty of the general public and blatant propaganda, aided by a complaisant media, to turn this country into something is has never been – bigoted, racist, xenophobic, selfish, self-indulgent, self-obsessed, uncaring and a disgrace to all those things that have made Australia a great country! Tolerance, mateship, community, fairness, honesty and a love of freedom in both speech and expression!



Postscript:  All characters appearing in this work are entirely, and amazingly, fictitious.  Any resemblance to real persons, living, dead or in a zombie like state, is purely coincidental with an exceptionally high probability of being the construct of a deluded mind trying to grasp the true meaning of the political unreality of Australian politics, al la NO Coalition!  We can only gaze upon such greatness with wonderment!

  1. Whoops…friggin’ typo’s. That should be ‘Goldtone’…


  2. ‘Gunfight at the OK Mosque’ 🙂 🙂 Another great effort D.. Do I detect a note of rising anger in this post? I notice that there’s not much on Davos, but then again how can you parody – the parody that was Abbott’s performance? The Kurt Schwab ‘meet and greet photo-op’ with Credlin looking like something the cat coughed up, while Tones is brushed aside like a street vendor handing out religious pamphlets. Even Amando Iannucci or Paddy Chayefsky couldn’t come up with something to match that.

      Thanks Edward. Looks like I’ll have to improve the quality of my angst camouflage device, eh? What can one say about Davos? A stupid PM goes to a high powered event inhabited with high powered attendees and makes a complete and utter fool of himself. This inarticulate, garbage thinking clown is a total embarrassment to Oz and we look even greater fools for actually electing him and his parody of responsible government. Oops! My angst is showing — better turn up the power on the camouglage thingy!! 😉
