So @SBSNews has TWO stories involving Kevin Rudd tonight. Clearly it’s ON.

@glengyron Look, don’t bother me with these tedious implementation details. Just make it happen.

That reminds me. Are you a media junkie? @Bobosphere’s apology in the last 75 secs of @onthemedia is truly glorious. onthemedia.org/story/on-the-m…

via TweetDeck

I remember @Bobosphere hearing my viewing habits and asking “And are you also a cutter?” corruptednerds.com/pod/c00011/

via TweetDeck

RT @savourybanana: @stilgherrian or you could watch M*A*S*H [Or I could just start cutting myself. Same result in the end.]

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Mainly, yes. The other one that might have been today isn’t due but often arrives before the due date.

Supplementary question: So if you want to host a TV program these days, you have to be a chef?

via TweetDeck

I’m just looking at tonight’s program guide. Didn’t free-to-air TV used to have, you know, programs on?

@kcarruthers Kind of the correct period the mindset comes from, too.

Colvinius Those who followed Abbott during the 2013 election campaign know that Ruddock was his loyal minder most days. Backbenching him seems major.

@R_Chirgwin @SnarkyPlatypus We’ll finally get that fucking possum.

I’m burning rather a lot of dinosaur juice today.

via TweetDeck

@MikeCarlton01 Easy, Mike. Let’s not get carried away. Give him another week.

via TweetDeck in reply to MikeCarlton01

MikeCarlton01 Now poor old Phillip Ruddock gets necked. If this keeps up, Abbott will soon be staging neo-Stalinist show trials with faked confessions…

Crusader Rabbit sacking Philip Ruddock? Yep, a bad workman always blames his tools.
