Annabel Crabb comments on the track-suit shaped hole inside every Parliament.
She's right about Kevin Rudd.
Kevin Rudd, settling snugly into the swivel chair that for 11½ years was the domain of J. Winston Howard, proved to be something of a natural. The air of elevated studiousness that he affected so maddeningly as opposition leader has made a smooth transition to power.
I mean, it was maddening whether you were on his side or not, but probably especially if you weren't. Reminds me of the way Adam Gilchrist tosses the ball into the air when he takes a catch. Must make the opposition batsmen want to give him a quick bop on the nose while he's not looking.
