Shocking

New Zild is getting closer and closer to it's general election. As the polls get closer and closer to having some significance the prospects for the Hard Right ACT party are getting a little gloomy. But the former members of the Act party are loyally diving in to scrape the inner lining of the excuse barrel for reasons to vote for them. 
We can see here that the main role for the ACT party is to be the fabled "Poison Rat" people have to eat to continue luxuriating in the unlimited staples and free use of hole-punching machines that constitute the baubles of office in NZ.
A supposedly well known media person sums up the situation for ACT here. Admittedly even Mr. Espiner has a list of reason to NOT vote for Act not the least of which is their general incompetence.
So the concept of ACT as Right-Wing Shock troops is looking a little the worse for wear.
Yeah, it's scary all right but possibly not in the way it is supposed to be.

Don't think poorly of me, but I might vote for the ACT party if it guaranteed I'd never have to have to set peepers on that picture again.

Well I just watched (sorta, it was a crappy CNBC live-stream) 2 hours of the 8 gooper clown-contestants for pretzeldent.

And now I'm feeling like I just had a whole lot to drink.

That sounds like something Pontius Pilate might have said.

Let me guess: unlimited staples is just another way of saying "all the vegemite you can eat".



Yes, wv, that does sound undly.

Smut Clyde said...

Vegemite is not a staple sir. It is more akin to a form of glue.

Another Kiwi said...

El Manquécito, all the vegemite you can eat is about 1/2 a teaspoon which is not the same as "unlimited" in this here socialanist utopia.

Another Kiwi said...

For Jennifer, this is the Other Another Kiwi, not the banned one.

El Manquécito said...

I shouldn't jest, living as I do in a place where Fluffernutter is a staple.


Yes itorout wv's lungs.

hole-punching machines

We are fortunate that Mr McGravitas is otherwise occupied and has not offered visual assistance to go with that.
