Misty Water-Coloured Memories!

Seeing as i'm not expecting any cash from the guy any time soon, i don't feel bad about recapping the strains that have developed in my relationship with Kevin Rudd over the last two years.

So let us jump aboard the Time Machine of Self-Indulgent Livejournal Rants and take a trip down memory lane!

This may be cathartic.

For me. :)

'[U]tterley gutless. [...] Kevin Rudd has completely folded. ' (June 2007, on the NT Intervention)...

'Kevin Rudd's Labor Party floods us with it's own idiotic decisions' (April 2008, on Gillard's Education policy)...

'Rudd opposed him for formally denouncing the brutal military occupation in East Timor [...] I wonder if he feels it was worth it' & 'Partly due to Rudd [...] there also followed 8 more years of the Howard government' (June 2008, on East Timorese massacres)...

'attempting to prevent torture cases from being pursued [is] entirely consistent with the stance of people like Kevin Rudd' (September 2008, on Falun Gong)...

'Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard are not going to do anything at all. It's against their basic corporatizing philosophy' (October 2008, on [a lack of] proper university funding)...

'We may as well not have had an election at all. I have a feeling Rudd & Gillard & Co. are actually going to give the Liberal Party a run for it's money' (October 2008, on internet censorship)...

'Kevin Rudd is as much of a right-wing shit as he ever was' (October, 2008, on [a lack of] Progressive Taxation)...

'[Won't Get Fooled Again] should have been the Kevin '07 campaign theme' (March 2009, on The Who)...

'[S]nivelling coward' (Yesterday, on boycotting a U.N. racism conference)...

'Just because someone wears glasses, doesn't mean they're not an idiot.' (Five minutes ago, on me not getting my fricking Rudd-money ... i mean, uh, on neoliberal distortions of accepted Keynesian economic policy)...

And, probably my personal favourite so far (but we have three more years to go!) -

*drumroll*

'Bespectacled. Goon.' (March 2009, on terrorism.)

I really wish we had a promising candidate among the ranks.
