The Saner Lefties Have Gone All Quiet

This morning's Australian is hilarious in its contempt for the shouters of the Left. That hasn't stopped Ben Wilson, last time I looked.

The Aussies have such a way with words:
Yesterday's flurry meant that smart money produced an early return and left strident critics looking like mug punters. Or, as Nationals senator Ron Boswell magnificently mangled, with "egg all over their face from head to toe".
And it just keeps on getting better.
And if you think the Greens are now retracting their vehement criticism, consult your local faith healer. Brown didn't break stride yesterday, describing (accurate) newspaper reports about imminent raids as "criminal" and wondering in the Senate whether Howard hadn't "endangered the intelligence and security" of the counter-terrorist operation by not acting earlier to amend the law.

A few Labor MPs were left scraping yolk from their eyelashes - Anthony Albanese's specs will require a thorough scrubbing after his berating of Howard for playing politics with national security - but the Golden Faberge goes to Lyn Allison. Having initially complained about the Senate being recalled under "false pretences", the Democrats leader yesterday wondered if Howard hadn't personally contacted the cops and asked: "Is there not a raid that could take place at this time to justify it?"
So at least we have learned one thing. There is a party that is dumber than the Greens.

"I question the timing of this raid!"

Or maybe, just maybe, there are whackjob psycho terrorists out there planning on blowing things up...

Is it just me or are the French riots distracting everyone from Bush at the Americas summit?
