Death Star(e)

As I've mentioned previously, the upcoming Federal election has the potential to be the most boring ever, with both party leaders almost terrified to be themselves.

Fortunately, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has decided to inject some humor into the proceedings, shifting the focus of one of its best weekly programs, The Gruen Transfer, from advertising in general to election advertising, & following that up with a new series of The Chaser—who disappeared from our small screens more than a year ago, buried because of the outcry over a somewhat bad taste segment—entitled Yes We Canberra.

The clip below is of the Deputy Leader of the (conservative) Opposition, & it's the first time I've ever had a positive response to her. Mind you, I think that's because of the context.....
