annabel has some nits...

 

nits...

But there is one existentially scorching brand of humiliation that towers above all, and it owes its existence to the animal kingdom.

I speak, with grim and recently acquired expertise, of the Adult Nit Infestation.

Getting nits as an adult is quite different from getting nits as a child.

When you are a child, you genuinely don’t care.

And to the extent that you do, in any event, you will in all likelihood be absolutely satisfied with the assurance that “head lice prefer clean hair”.

(When I was a kid, I completely accepted this claim, filing it unquestioningly among other fascinating oddities from the natural world, like migrating eels, or the thing where in seahorse families it’s the dad who gets pregnant. As an adult, however, I recognise the clean-hair theory as a transparent piece of politically-correct propaganda. Why would a louse care whether hair is dirty or clean? And what choice does it have, anyway?)

As an adult, the discovery that one is harbouring an unspecified number of small scuttling insects in one’s hair brings about a number of confronting results.

The first is the immediate collapse of about 200,000 years of evolutionary history. Sure, you might be able to calculate Pi to 300 places, hold your end up in a conversation about neoclassicism, or construct a croquembouche. But once you’ve got things living in your hair, you’re starkly reminded that 99 per cent of your genetic code is pretty much straight-out bonobo monkey.

apologies from gus leonisky...

Sorry, Annabel... I could not resist doing the toon...

once more the fence sitter is wrong...

 

Through its extraordinary attack on the president of the Human Rights Commission, the Federal Government has allowed Labor to avoid scrutiny for its own role in allowing children to suffer in detention, writes Annabel Crabb.

Of all the weird developments in the past week - and this is a period, keep in mind, during which Foreign Minister Julie Bishop conducted an interview communicating only in emoji - surely the strangest is this: the Australian Labor Party now fancies itself to be on the moral high ground, refugee policy-wise...

Blah blah blah...

--------------------------

Gus: It seems to me that Annabel left her fence sitting position that would have been slightly painful, to go with a weirdo attack on Labor... Sure Labor has exercised a few sins like being confused by its "compassionate side" and the hardline demanded by "the Australian people" (through the MMMM — the mediocre mass media de mierda) on the boat people... Julia Gillard had a solution that was to place ALL the boat people at the end of the queue in Malaysian in refugee camps and take 10 times more refugees out of Malaysia — those who had been processed by UNHCR. Everyone shouted that this was inhumane thus Labor went back to the Howard years of stacking refugees on islands, including Manus Island. 

The Gillard solution would have stopped the boats. 

When the Liberals (CONservatives) led by little turd tony got the gig they soon stopped feeding the press with any news of boats (thus the boats did not "exist"). Meanwhile the turd (note the lower case) enlisted YOUR Australian Navy to break at least three maritime and UN laws MANY TIMES to stop the boats... We should be ashamed that our navy was part of this rigmarole, including pirating boats in international waters, loading the people on orange "life"boats and then towing the orange boats INSIDE Indonesian waters. 

Then the turd, having had a few revolt and one dead in the camps did a deal with another country, basically the same that Julia was doing, EXCEPT THERE IS NO SUCH GENEROSITY AS TO TAKE refugees off the refugee camps... No, turdy is just doing a dump for cash — that YOU are paying. 

Some "nasty" people have suggested that refugees are actually now coming by plane... rather than rickety crafts... But this is another story.  

Meanwhile the fact is that the Liberals (CONservatives) ATTACKED TRIGGS. The fact is that the LIBS (CONservatives) sent a few more children to the camps (over Joe Hockey's dead body who could not die despite his tears) and ventilated many kids to various destinations which some people are quite nebulous about... Annabel, no-one here is trying to tie in Peta Credlin (apart from Mr Murdoch who counts for about ten million Australians) to the bubbling efforts of the lying turd whose fortune are rising because the MMMM is forgetful and forgiving — to a royalist male chauvinist pig who lied through his teeth more than I've had breakfasts in my entire life. But turdy is contrite like a good catholic. Say three hail marys and come back to the confessional tomorrow... Ugly. Annabel, you missed the point entirely...

 

the slightly leaning to the right fence-sitter in charge of Q&A.

It's a Q&A first – an all-woman panel, including the host – with Jones surrendering his chair to Annabel Crabb and a panel including Germaine Greer and Julie Bishop. As Crabb noted on Twitter after the line-up was revealed: "Odds of that getting out of control? Unbackable I'd say. Come along."

Feminism versus "arrived-femme-fatales rejecting feminism" in a field of glass ceilings shards... Gus shall wait the day after for the result of the match... 

Meanwhile according to "our" Margolyes, "Tony Abbott is a tit" whatever derogation this means...
Annabel is often very quick at pointing Labor's faults while making excuses and cajoling to the right wing, of which our Tony Turdy is a tit sitting to the right of Genghis Khan.
