I like this from a commenter at WUWT, quoting the Courier-Mail (in, one supposes, Queensland):
A merciless Bob Katter [some LNP muckety-muck] had some harsh words for Anna Bligh tonight, following her defeat at the polls [as Labor PM of Queensland].Of course, what the commenter doesn't say is that we're allowing the media to distract with these idiotic "hot-button" issues.
“Did you really think people would vote for you?” he said.
“Congratulations Anna – you saved the trees but the people well and truly cut you down.”
And it’s too bad that American politicians & public can’t be more like the following [sic] instead of being distracted by personal hot button issues that have little effect on the nation as a whole: When asked about gay marriage, Mr Katter said: “We’re talking about serious issues.”
Update: WUWT fans (and fans of truth, justice and the Am--er, Australian way), will enjoy this thread.
