Graphical Manipulations #121: Lambies, Sinodinos, The Rat, Rabboting, The Rat, Daffy, Hills And Gourds!

Well whack my Gourd! What an exciting week and a day it has been, eh?  It’s a rare event when you can participate in a Lieberal leadership spill where the incumbent, Prime Winky Dill Rabbott, wins the spill with 61 votes against nobody who actually gets 39 votes in support of their non-being.  And to really add gloss to the undercoat of the day, someone abstains, thereby indicating that they don’t want the incumbent or nobody in the role of Prime Team Minister for Team Australia.  Who would have thought it possible that, after all the media hype, the careful theorising on possible outcomes, the breaking news about a rumour of rumoured rumblings, secret meetings, fugitive phone calls, denials denying that there had been anyone denied the opportunities to deny whatever they were accused of, that nothing actually happened!  Except that nobody got 39 votes in support of – them!

There was so much Graphical Manipulation material available that the computer sang paens of pleasure as it uploaded all those informational bits and bytes to enable said GM’s to be created from the erudite eruptions of our political giants.  Eat your heart out Winston!  Jacqui Lambie was in there on Q&A taking it up to the PWD and to his mentor, that national hero of the trashpaper, Rupert of Murdoch with;

Lambie Pambie

Arfur Sinodinos (no relation to Arfur Daley – he of Minder fame), who vanished mysteriously from prominence in the Lieberal montage because he couldn’t remember much at all was decidedly unconditional about his ongoing support for his Prime Minister.  And his name is . . . . . . .?  Arfur!  His name?

Sinodinos Who

Rat in an attempt to shift focus away from the Lieberal spill furore provided some excuse as to why Joe Hockey was remiss in complying with the Charter of Budget Honesty.

Forgetful Hockey Rat

And that Peter Credlin was now running a Star Chamber instrumental in the hiring and firing process occurring within parliamentary offices.  I guess one has to ask why the parliamentarians lack the intestinal fortitude to indicate just where Peta might care to shove her demands.  Perhaps they are worried that they might get an Abbott Shirtfront for their trouble!

Credlin Starchamber Rat

As a counterpoint to Rats cunning ploy we countered with a shining example of our PM at his sparkling best being as obfuscatory as he possibly could and reminding us that it was all Labor’s fault for giving his team spill ideas.  Mind you he did say “insider” four times!

Dribble Rabbott

And that let Rat loose with his take on the aftermath of the “Spill That Wasn’t”.  YESSS! Three Word Slogan and 1,000 points!  Tony was forceful in his support of his senior ministers.

Confident Abbott Rat

And he reaffirmed that he, and his ministerial team were about good governance by the grown ups.

Good Govt Rat

And he was fully prepared to treat those troublesome backbench upstarts with equanimity and move on!

Behind Rabbott Rat

And when you consider that some 61 parliamentarians of the Lieberal inclination voted to maintain the status quo, as ugly and embarrassing as it is, then it must be time for Daffy Duck!

Lieberal Idiot Slap

And those thoughts led to consideration of our Federal Parliament as it stands proudly on its hill and to;

House on Hill

And finally to a few words of wisdom from Gourd.  Gourd be praised, his wisdom doth amaze!

Failed Gourd Gourd

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

Except for;

AFTERTHOUGHT: If you don’t punish politicians and their parties for lying to you, you are predetermining your treatment as a fool!

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. Thank Gourd that Malcolm’s likely to be a Shoe- in (sic), at the next spill around four months from now.


    • deknarf says:

      What a farce Edward! Rabbott gets 61 votes and nobody gets 39? Just on the off chance Fraudbull might declare his hand! And to add farce to the ridiculous, some clown abstains!! You couldn’t dream this up on an LSD trip! :-))


      • By Gourd you’ve put your finger right on it D! The whole bloody thing is being orchestrated by the ghost of Tim Leary! “Turn on, tune in, and ummm… ahhh,… whatchamacallit,”
