Wanker Of The Day

Welcome to Opposition, Janet Albrechtsen:
Bipartisanship means Rudd's way or the highway... Disagree and you are not just wrong, you are evil... We are returning to the pre-Howard era where logic and reason and facts are discarded as totally inappropriate and racist... It's easy to discard [members of the Left] as irrelevant, living in a parallel universe void of reason and logic.
This pathetic hissing fit perfectly illustrates how the Culture Wars have come full circle. I don't know if that means they are "over", but if rightwing crazies like Janet are not going to just piss off and die, as they should, certainly it's time for them to develop some new and original talking points, instead of just recycling the anti-Howard arguments that were used against THEM for so long.

Perhaps it's no surprise that Janet also wants to declare the Culture Wars "over":
Of course, nothing feeds the progressive appetite more than comments that trash the culture wars. They detest the culture wars for one reason, and one reason alone. They lost them. They were resoundingly defeated on almost every front.
Fine. Whatever. So let's all enjoy "The New Silence" - puh-lease!!!

Now can we also declare victory in Iraq and go home?
