I must say I agree with you there, though if it comes down to it I also agree that the Right has its moments too. My immediate family are strongly Labour supporters, and they seem to have bought it. *sigh*

No one is immune, I am focusing on the left in this instance....probably because like P.J O'Rouke I used to be a big leftie but then I got a hair cut and a proper job and no I see the far left position with as much distaste as the far right.

P.J. O'Rourke didn't stop being a leftie because he got a job and a haircut. He stopped being a leftie because he's an asshole. (Man, that "evils of collectivism... creating... public-school" line still repulses me on so many levels.)

And don't compare yourself to him; you're funnier than he is.

Who's O'Rourke?

Also, I have a feeling that this isn't going to be a great term for the National government. But if this is anything to go by that's not going to be for good reasons.

PJ O'Rourke is (supposed left-wing activism from his teen years aside) a lifelong libertarian (not event the good kind). He used to write genuinely funny political satires, but now he just regurgitates right-wing talking points in the Weekly Standard.

Yeah, I meant Parliament of Whores O'Rourke not Weekly Standard O'Rourke.
