Politics

So, you guys. Looks like Australia has a hung parliament.

I have to say, if nothing else, this appeals to my sense of drama. Not as much as Julia Gillard deposing Kevin Rudd did, but I have to say that I have never found politics this interesting before.

It's also kind of... validating, maybe, to see the entire nation's voting choices mirroring my own indecision? I voted Green, but I was dithering over who to preference - Labor with the Internet Filter *vomit*, but supporting the National Broadband Network *thumbs up* and Liberal opposed to censorship *cheer* but insisting that the NBN was a waste of money *boo*. In the end I went with Julia, because I honestly feel better represented by an unmarried athiest woman than by more of the same middle-aged religious white man. And I kind of have a thing for redheads. Which is a terrible reason to choose a Prime Minister, but hey, it's my vote so I'll do what I like with it.

Will be interested to see how this all plays out.

In other news, I just logged into photobucket to upload something and found something hilarious. That image that I uploaded two days ago, of Tony Abbot in his speedos?

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *dead*
