Fly, conservative poster "girl"; fly, be free

I see that Bronwyn Bishop's $5000 helicopter flight to save a mere 50 minute drive down the freeway to a fundraiser is enough to cause Joe Hockey to doubt her wisdom.  (I wonder if he had clearance from the PM's office to do that?  I suspect not, and perhaps he's had a phone call from Peta already?)

Amongst the Righties of the blogosphere, though, it's barely worth noting.

OK, well, Andrew Bolt does have a short post about it - but oddly, no comments by readers at all.

Tim Blair would rather target "frightbats"  and doesn't mention it at all, that I can see.

And in the Wednesday Open Thread at Catallaxy, last I saw there were two comments whinging about Bill Shorten complaining about it.

She's their poster "girl", and about the same age as the average Catallaxy thread-ster now, so it's no wonder...

Bronwyn Bishop is a gift that keeps on giving to the ALP.

Only a complete moron would have made her speaker.

the ALP should make DVDs of her 'performance and send them out.
One of the reasons why a first term government doesn't dominate Parliament as it should.

This is simply unbelievable.

Slipper was a great choice.
