"Yeah, thanks for taking my question, Tony"
Shaun Carney, the best writer on the Age in my opinion, has an interesting take on the election thus far and I urge you to take a look.
For me, the most telling comment was this one about Jules’ performance on Q&A;
The great strength of Monday night's show lay in the fact that the questions came from voters and did not follow the gaffe-chasing methodologies that embody so much of the media's current approach to politicians. The questions seemed to be put with the goal of eliciting a genuine response, not catching out the interviewee. Gillard managed to be disarming without altogether surrendering her prime ministerial air.
This dumb obsession with the “gotcha” moment by the meeja is making me tear out what’s left of my hair.
