Finally had a moment to watch this election night video Brett McS left in my comments the other day:
Wayne Swan (“The Hapless”) is Federal Treasurer, which is the equivalent of the US Treasury Secretary (but with somewhat more policy setting power, relatively speaking). Michael Kroger is (or was last time I looked) president of the Victorian Liberal Party and frequent media commentator. Also, nice non-verbal cameo from Peter Costello.
“No wonder they whacked you in the face, son.” Oh, SNAP!
God that’s wonderful. What a country!
