Roll on November 24. That's hopefully when we get to fire the bastard who has led Australia into its current global position. I'm not sure if it's reverse cowgirl or missionary but do know it involves US foreign policy.
Until then, some people have put positive initiatives in place to make sure that we don't become completely brain damaged by the stupefying media coverage.
Check out the LOL pols Flickr page, visit the blog of the Greens federal Senators, and if you're one of the Aussies who has buggered off to the UK for obvious reasons in the past 10 years I hope your pub/ hostel/ cricket coaching gig is paying alright coz there's a real chance it'll be worth flying back here in about a month from now.
