One of the threats being the idiot John Bolton.
A primary debate with Rubio, Cruz and Paul is going to be epic. The first two are the best public speakers the GOP has had since Reagan, and Paul is his father on articulate steroids.
"Unless you have a uterus. That sucker’s OURS."
Delivered flatly, calmly, just short of menacingly, his speech covers everything from environmental policy to penalty rates; from school funding to broadband; from the Trans-Pacific partnership to the shark cull. It includes so many incredible lines that it’s hard to pick the best one — but it’s probably the bit where he describes the Coalition’s leadership team as “blundering and technically illiterate”; the bit where he describes Abbott’s relationship with mining billionaires and media oligarchs as “awkward, and kind of revolting”; or the bit where he calls the current Government “a thin, greasy layer in the core sample of future political scientists”.
“Your thoughtless cancellation of half a billion dollars of Commonwealth funding for the Perth light-rail project has been noted,” he says at one point. “Your blank cheque for Colin Barnett’s bloody and unnecessary shark cull has been noted. Your attack on Medicare, on schools funding, on tertiary education; noted. The fact that your only proposal for environmental reforms thus far is to leave Minister Greg Hunt playing Solitaire for the next three years while you outsource his responsibilities to the same Premiere who presides over the shark cull? That’s been noted too.”
Please watch this!
I am so proud of Senator Ludlam right now!
He makes a stand against human trafficking and libs still use it against him. How low will people go?
UPDATE: Rand Paul takes a stand against human trafficking. UPDATE 2: Rand Paul meeting with advisors to consider taking stand against leukemia.
W. and Jeb
Waiting for the black guy to clean up the mess.

Ugh, headlines. This from The Atlantic on a piece about diversity of news. I was just thinking about the different newsletters I subscribe to and the difference in coverage from day to day. Although they never really butt heads like this, it’s interesting to see what does/doesn’t get covered in each writeup.
Rupert Murdoch owning the Wall Street Journal hasn’t had any effect at ALL, obviously…
