he's so much more eloquent with the put downs.
I'm not sure eloquence is noted/appreciated by those on KB
The first thing that billboard said to me was that the person paid to be quiet had cheated.
I agree entirely...it's really f*cking poor from Tui and suggests that the victim was the one who disclosed the information.
But then this sort of behaviour and Tui.....
The other thing that I find interesting, is that the news story should be taking a tack towards the "this sort of thing is incredibly widespread in NZ, it's not just South Auckland where this sort of shit goes down".
And while I've seen it touched upon, noone's really asked "does this mean wealthy people can get away with this sort of thing?"
but someone sure seems a wee bit techy when pointing out that folks who like posturing on the moral high ground really should keep their own arses clean.
I hope you're not referring to me, because about 3 posts earlier I said that many have expressed outrage at Helen Clark's attacks on Key.
I don't mean to single you out - there are many on this thread who have said ridiculous things - you just happen to on the other side of the political fence to me, thus you inspire more passion in my replies :)
Dammit...hit preview first.
So many errors in the above post I don't know where to begin.
A collection of your replies to claims of Nataionl dialoique over the last few days:
Well, Don, Clark straight-forwardly told an untruth in the House last week, and one she feels absolutely no need to withdraw or apologise for
You may have found people like Clayton Cosgrove and Tariana Turia
You're A-OK, with Mallard's little attacks of sleaze.
OTOH, Russell, it's not hard to feel that folks are getting pretty damn sick of the slick, punchy and totally content free soundbite that Clark is very, very good at as well
can we just acknowledge that the bullshit isn't all on one side? Just a little bit?
People have. Numerous times. Most have expressed disgust at Helen for the attacks she launched at Key.
However every time someone raises a criticism of National you come back with a defence of "but Labour is worse..."
That and it's a bit whistley to bring up the auditor general don't ya think?
"Remember the election fraud people! Remember!!!"
but correct me if I'm wrong in believing that if anyone on the PAS threatened to "fuck the bloody ass" of either a reporter or another PAS member, it would be taken poorly by everyone.
In all fairness, that's quite funny in an absurd over the top kinda way
Nobody really believes that John Key is going to sell their children into foreign-owned multinational slavery
I thought he ate babies? Didn't we discuss this? Wasn't that the consensus?
Dammit, has Key changed his nefarious actions again? I can't keep up.
I think i was trying to get at the fact that he will either be judged as a sportsman or a pretty boy, but never at the same time
Au contraire, I have been convinced for years that DC's poor performances over in South Africa are the result of the air being thinner and thus his hair not retaining enough volume.
And American political campaigning has refined that to a near-surgical pitch.
Oh we don't dare disagree here, but you are very quick to equate NZ politics to the shit-storm that is US elections.
I don't think the two are comparable. For one, they elect a solitary head of state, we elect parties - now some argue that we've become very leader-centric of late, so much so that I actually did this as a partial-thesis at Uni and found that leadership contributes (roughly) 10% to a voter's decision (I know I know lies, damn lies and statistics).
Secondly, they screen attack ads, we're just too damn toothless to do that - and the NZ public wouldn't stand for it.
And thirdly, noone here gives a shit if John Key doesn't sing the national anthem or wear a goddamn southern cross pin on his lappelle.
