Ok, I am aware that there’s a certain type in the media who relies on saying something shocking in order to create the sort of controversy that gets them noticed. And there are some who’d say anything that someone paid them to say.
They’re the sort who are “housetrained”. Bring out your chequebook and they’ll tell you that black is white.
Sorry, Andrew, that’s just a figure of speech, so don’t get all funny about that court case, and Alan we’ve forgotten all about that Media Watch!
I mean, Alan Jones and Andrew Bolt are pillars. They are extraordinary human beings.
How do I know this?
Well, a few days ago, someone was suggesting that Turnbull had a “narcissist personality disorder”. And there were descriptions about what such a thing meant, but to use the Wikipedia defintion, it means that “a person is excessively preoccupied with personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity, mentally unable to see the destructive damage they are causing to themselves and others.”
And yet, in spite of Turnbull’s alleged disorder, we’re told today, by Andrew Bolt that he’s been “housetrained”.
That’s Turnbull, not Bolt. Nobody could ever accuse Bolt of being “housetrained”.
Anyway, this Prime Minister – the one with prestige and vanity – has been harnessed by Jones and Bolt.
Yep, Bolt wrote today:
“So, yes, I should feel like Samson after a haircut. But here’s the funny thing. We’ve actually won. Me and Alan. We’ve house-trained Turnbull.”
Now some of you may have a problem with the idea that a Prime Minister could be the pet of two people who’s only claim to representing the people is that they give their opinion and that they don’t listen to anyone else. But, in Bolt’s world, this is what democracy means. He has the right to say whatever he likes and anyone who disagrees should be shut down, shut up or shut off.
After all, as he said when that other Murdoch paper, The Australian, had the temerity to critiicism him, he only has his reputation, so nobody should attack that. Particularly a paper that relies on the tabloids to subsidise it.
Now some may see a problem with the idea that Malcolm Turnbull would “housetrained” by such a person, but I don’t.
That’s because I read Andrew Bolt’s column today. And that means that I know all that I need to know. Because even though Bolt never completed his university degree, he’s somehow been able to become an expert on everything.
Even controlling PM’s with alleged narcissist disorders.
Pity he didn’t do it when Tony and Peta were running things . . .
