Tony Abbott has called for Australia urgently to consider a missile defence shield to protect against attack by nuclear-armed North Korea.Kevin Rudd just blathers on, so it's silly to say Tony's not nuts because Kevin said the same.
And Malcolm should be shutting up on North Korea too, I reckon. Or at least, not giving them reason to try an experimental lob of a missile in our direction.
I also see (via Jason) that Tony's hyperbole about same sex marriage has been contradicted by Chris Kenny. I agree, Kenny's column is an unusually calm and measured one which I find hard to disagree with. I'm sure that Kenny will go back to being a bloviating political twit tomorrow.
My only puzzle is whether I take part in the silly postal opinion poll, or "vote" against it. I am half inclined to do something to amuse the counters, like vote "No" but ruin the ballot by writing on it something about how I don't want to see Tony Abbott hitching up with long time suitor David Marr. And I wonder how many papers will be not counted because of the addition of a male genitalia squiggle. Maybe men only do that if they are forced to vote.
