Polling is open now. I must say that supporters of The AIMN came up with a few names that I hadn’t considered at first blush and all were very worthy of a place. Names such as Feny, Frydenberg, Tudge, Brandis, Porter, Lleyonhjelm, Mc Donald, Abetz and Cash.
One person even asked what is the collective noun for a group of lying, incompetent shysters. Can I suggest “coalition”?
After lengthy consultation with myself I decided that Tudge should replace Bishop on the original list. We then set about eliminating three to make a final list of 10. They are not in any particular order. You have to vote.
The three we eliminated were Fifield, Abetz and Tudge, leaving us with the top 10 as listed:
1 George Christensen for being himself. Not many pollies can achieve that.
2 Sam Dastyari for being too impatient.
3 Tony Abbott for confirming that he was the worst PM the country has ever had.
4 Malcolm Turnbull for being the biggest donor to his own success, if nothing else. And for taking hypocrisy to another level.
5 Chrissy Pyne for his obnoxious behaviour and feeling good about it.
6 Peter Dutton for jailing innocent people and feeling pleased with himself.
7 Greg Hunt together with Josh Frydenberg for being complicit in destroying the environment gets the smiling assassin bullshit nomination – “Hey I’m a nice guy and my family survived the holocaust so believe me when I say coal is our future and ‘we are on target to meet our emissions reduction targets’.”
8 Pauline Hanson. Well, you know.“Someone told me …”
9 Michaelia Cash. Cash gets the Kath and Kim nomination for wanting to be Julie Bishop but not quite pulling it off and for using the AFP as her personal union-bashing goon squad.
10 Barnaby Joyce: the disgusting drunk who preached to the rest of us about family values yet is rumoured to be engaging in ‘non-family values.’
My thought for the day
“What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you for doing it?”
PS: When you think about it, the way we are governed comes down to the way we are led. For that reason I’m voting for Malcolm Turnbull.
