Phew. And for a minute there you thought we would have a notorious human rights abuser as Prime Minister.
We can thank Scott Morrison's lord and saviour for delivering us a man whose actions and rhetoric as Minister for Immigration and Border Protection from September 2013 to September 2015 rightly earned him comparisons in Overland with Adolf Eichmann.
In a result which can only be described as the difference between type 6 and type 7 on the Bristol Stool Chart, one man responsible for offshore concentration camps, torture and multiple breaches of international human rights law beat another.
Nonetheless, Australians are breathing a huge sigh of relief that the new Prime Minister won't have to spend quite as much time as the alternative in learning how to smile, studying how to minimise telltale signs of psychopathology, and convincing everyone he's not the D-1000 sent back in time by future robot overlords to kill us all.
