The electorate as ‘battered wife’…

How to comprehend the public infatuation with this utterly inauthentic man? Ponder the testimony of those who know him best, in the video below, and then ponder Mr Rudd’s popularity rating. It reminds me of the pitiful look in the demoralised eyes of a young woman who has been abused by her man but still takes him back – and even avows her love for him. There is something pitiful in this lack of self-respect in the Australian voter.

UPDATE

This gem from The Spectator:

…Not only is Mr Rudd an emperor without clothes, he is desperately trying to steal Mr Abbott’s: sweats, fluoro vests, hard hats and all. Every move the Labor leader makes is an acknowledgement that the Liberal leader was right all along. To the pathetic acquiescence of the metropolitan sophisticates (see below), Mr Rudd has capitulated to Mr Abbott and the Coalition’s core principles and convictions, exposing his own hollowness and that of his party… That is an acknowledgment on Mr Rudd’s part that he can’t win the election unless he separates himself from the albatross of his party’s left wing. After all, there aren’t enough feminists, public servants and do-gooders outside a Q&A audience to win an electoral majority…

… Much to our astonishment, it would appear that the rules change when it is Labor, rather than the Coalition, who are touting supposedly inhumane policies. Indeed, what was most perplexing was how easily hitherto vocal opponents of mandatory detention found themselves incapable of uttering even a single word of criticism against this latest idea, whereby asylum-seekers are not only denied access to the Australian legal system, but are sent off to our own Port Arthur-style convict settlement on remote Manus Island. Oh, the shame and horror to be an Australian? What paralysing affliction has so comprehensively crippled the larynxes of the Left? Perhaps it’s something in the latte, or worse an outbreak of the highly contagious Burnside Syndrome that has seen the luvvies all struck mute. ‘Let’s face it,’ Julian Burnside QC tweeted last week, ‘the PNG arrangement is a shabby deal, but at least if [sic] might stop Scott (‘illegals’) Morrison becoming Immi Minister.’
