Hip to be square

Time to get away from hurricanes and back round to NZ politics. The Greens have a cool new invention they want to show off. It's expected to take off in a big way in the last 20 years.

"In 1975 the Values Party set a new standard for political party manifestos with its 90-page publication with a full colour cover that was sold in book shops. We have now eclipsed that cutting-edge initiative with this 21st Century equivalent," Mr Donald says.
Ummm, wasn't the CD-Rom released back around 1985? Not particularly 21st century. In fact decidely 20th, given that other greenie Al Gore must of invented it. First colour printing then CDs, what next for the intrepid party that probably would have banned CDs based on the chemicals used in manufacturing during the 80s? Oh, I see, you mean cutting edge for a political party. Congrats on raising that particular bar, look forward to the next breakthrough round 2035 then. What did ever happen to the Values party with their ground breaking manifesto? Oh yeah, died out in the ice age that they were all so terrified of if I remember right.
Nandor says that once again this demonstrates that the Greens are the most innovative, creative and technologically literate of the political parties.
Demonstrates something, not technological literacy, a bit of creativity maybe, but otherwise.
"We have demonstrated this repeatedly by having the best and most informative website and running one of New Zealand's most popular political blogs. The Greens are also the only party to have a series of music CD compilations," he says.
OK their websites are informative when you are looking for what is latest in crinolene political thought, I'll give him that. As for music CDs, again, welcome to the 80s lads.
"It never ceases to amaze me when MPs, who barely know how to use a computer, accuse us of being Luddites. Clearly we are the most techno-savvy party."
It never ceases to amaze ME how much Nandor can sound like an old man trying to be hip. Geez, even my dad wasn't that bad when I got my first computer and he's way older than Nandor. I know who is in more need of a hip replacement as well. Went to a techno-savvy party once but the drugs sucked, rate acid house parties much better.

Really if your aim is to show that you are up with the cool kids and showing up the other parties lack of technology use then PLEASE don't make an announcement that sounds like you got one of THEM to write it! This takes me back to the cringe days of parents trying to act cool for your friends when you were a teenager.

They're a bunch of old fuddy duddies these days. How much support do these clowns get from younger voters?
