Re-published with tense changes to literally describe the Liberal launch on 12/05/2019
One of the above images was originally satirical and one is a real photo from the launch. Which is which is anybody’s guess.
So it turns out the Prime Minister spent the week downplaying the launch for good reason. He performed a one man show to nobody.
Malcolm Turnbull continued his struggle with erectile dysfunction in New York now his bruised ego impedes arousal at the sight of his own portrait. Tony Abbott was in Warringah placing a series of tasteful bets with 7-year-olds that climate change won’t kill them within 10 years, while John Howard was busy writing his new memoir titled “A Paedophile Priest And Me”.
Where Labor presented a united team at their launch along with a series of smiling ex-Prime Ministers, the Liberals presented a forlorn man in a baseball cap talking to himself.
