Ken L has a couple of great posts up at The Road to Surfdom.
An election heard around the world, where he has perused the moanings of the Bushcheerers around the world so that you don’t have to, excerpting only to show that they neither know nor care that the rest of the world’s elections don’t work the way that theirs do (one even said that they wouldn’t be surprised if Labor had tampered with Australian voting machines, which is an extra special level of lack of clue).
In Dream Teams for the Libs, Ken takes a probably not all that helpful look at possibilities for leadership of the Liberal party in the upcoming Opposition years. Nice choice of headshots.
For contrast, Guy at Polemica takes a more measured look at how the election numbers fell out at the booths: Reflections on the end of an era

Gillard has just confirmed on ABC Radio that they continue to fully support the intervention.
Damn. Nothing about changing the focus of the intervention to actually implementing the 97 recommendations?
She didn’t mention it.
All of Labor’s leaders since Hayden have been conservative (in the Labor sense of the word) so I’m not really surprised that Rudd and Gillard haven’t pulled back the curtain to reveal the Wizard.
Pavlov’s Cat said much the same thing about Rudd not being as radical as some of us might like.
Awwww, the American Right is all disappointed in us. That’s so cute. 🙂
I think that this comment from CSS on The Road to Surfdom sums it up nicely:

Projecting like an Imax!
