Thanks to Kevin Rudd I can’t even turn on the news anymore out of fear he’ll be there taunting me with some sort of awful disrespect that will take me and my otherwise peaceful day into an ugly tailspin.
Another reminder shoved in my face that as bad as the performance on most levels that Labour has displayed during their time in power, it’s the Kevin Rudd Show that for me is the hardest of all to watch.
How could someone in his position even dare to use the word trust in his address regarding the election? If there was one word surely that he should have never, ever approved to be in his speech it is the word trust.
Kevin Rudd’s concept of politics is a bit like watching the movie The Hunger Games, all for show, pretty disturbing and only room for one winner. Kevin.
Like the contestants in The Hunger Games who as part of winning the game needed to create this extravagant make over, designed to convince the public of their power and mystery, so too has Kevin, at heavens knows what cost, apparently bought himself a PR spin team to fool us into thinking he’s something that he’s not.
All part of what wreaks to me of this never ending revenge on not just Julia but also the people of Australia. Especially those that didn’t nor ever will vote for him. He’s delighting in holding us all to ransom and forcing all of us to have to be part of his game.
Even worse, his spin team is American. Now there are many things I love about America and its people, but what on earth do they know really about real Australians or what we desire as a proud nation of citizens?
If you need to bring in a pack of Americans, known for their meticulous, painstaking brain swashing PR expertise to win you friends and ultimately an election, then either you have delusions of Obama status, or you must very little to brag about in reality.
Barack Obama has made plenty of celebrity mates, which in American clearly doesn’t hurt. His image has been on t-shirts and he’s even graced the couch of a very non-campaign traditional show such as The View. He knows how to work it like a pro, make himself look accessible whilst nurturing the unique ingredient of X Factor cool.
Yet here we have, a deluded man who was lucky enough for someone to come up with the brief nickname Kevin ’07, someone else then writing a mildly amusing rap tune to it, and even though the rest of us have moved on, good old Kevin as with all things, cannot let it go.
So I don’t cop Kevin trying to plant such sound bites in the hope they’ll make it on to a t-shirt like “just chill”, or “I’m going to have to zip,” or “whatevs…” How dare he even try to be funny in a position such as his? After his party have damaged our nation’s self esteem in the way that it has?
Call me old fashioned but I also think he should have better things to do than to be tweeting things such as, ‘I’ve just sat down to watch the test. That was one of the worst cricket umpiring decisions I have ever seen. KRudd.’ Not surprising I guess given we are dealing with a person that enjoys being a celebrity as well as a leader and that’s what they do.
As for describing himself and his party as the ‘underdogs’ of the race…Kevin might believe his party aren’t popular, but he does not and never has considered himself as a weak link. Once again, another little strategy to convince you that Kevin doesn’t think Kevin is our messiah.
In 5 weeks time I hope there is a change in our nation that starts to slowly restore the way we used to feel about ourselves. After all, we’ve been humiliated and patronized for long enough.
