Attila the Pun

I am sorry, but I just cannot get the smile off my face. Being a news junkie, and a regular reader of blogs, it was easy to go into this election thinking that the Liberals were hanging on by a thread, and that this election was going to go right down to the wire.
Instead? Labor copped an absolute hiding. In the face of a sometimes vitriolic campaign against Howard personally in the media, the Coalition increased its majority, and may actually get de facto control of the senate.
Labor and its supporters are already trying to spin their fourth consecutive loss. The voters are stupid, the Liberals scare campagn worked etc etc. They will also continue to maintain the fiction that Latham 'won' the campaign. If they continue on this line, along with believing that everybody hates Howard and Costello as much as they do, then I look forward to gloating again in 2007.
As far as the blog round-up, my favourite line so far has come from the Currency Lad:
This has been a myth perpetuated for months now - that the public is really taking to Mark Latham. With a stick maybe.
