State Election 2013 Live

I’m putting this up early to remind people to take photos of their cake stalls and sossie sizzles at election venues tomorrow. ( ) You may start commenting on Mark (The Slightly Damp Teatowel  SDTT) McGowan’s chances against Colin ” The Jowl Meister” now. here’s a photo of Albert Jacobs, who was elected aged only 12 last election.albert-jacob

Frightening: two views of SDTT. I find the roasted registered lawn one more comforting. Guildford.


Barnett: media huddle, and bubble trouble. Cottesloe.

    Just back from Rostrata Primary. Snags being sizzled, no cakes but a garden sale from their Stephanie Alexander garden.


  2. Russell Woolf's Lovechild says:

    Has Sneakers done too much media to undo his modus operandi?


  3. Bananaman says:

    What passion rages beneath his damp post culinary facade?


  4. Bento says:

    Mount Lawley Kindergarten was sausage and cake free. UnAustralian. I blame Sutherland.


  5. janezee says:

    I delivered four perfectly nice lemon drizzle cakes to Lathlain primary early this morning but by the time I got back to vote all they had left was fucking chocolate crackles. Good sausages but.


    • Russell Woolf's Lovechild says:

      Chocolate crackles?? Lard and coco pops. Gen X mums are letting democracy down.


    • Misspent yoof says:

      Bloody hell! I voted at Lathlain; would have killed for a sizzled sausage but all I got was a friendly greeting from our local Watermelons candidate.


  6. Rolly says:

    Not so much as a hint of sustenance at the Doubleview Primary school this A.M.
    Perhaps the school did not want sausage fat, soggy onions, spat out bread and discarded wrappings all over their lovely new paving.


  7. Russell Woolf's Lovechild says:

    Any guestimates on when Red Kezza is forced to acknowledge, “Well it looks like the ABC has lost this one?”


  8. rottobloggo says:

    Fresh pix up.


  9. rottobloggo says:

    Does he look like Karina Carvalho??


  10. Bento says:

    Kerry’s got hair like a 15-year old skater. Put a pair of white ankle socks on him, and he could go undercover at Morley SHS.


  11. RubyRuby says:

    Lovely sausage sizzle at Alinjarra Primary, but Christians were too well prepared – handing out cards from folding chairs. Mixed up the how to vote gauntlet. Think it was the Libs candidate wielding a mallet on to a huge picture of herself as I pulled up, but could have been someone vaguely similar… Basically, I went for the potential cake and ended up with a can of Solo.


  12. RubyRuby says:

    Julie Bishop quoted on ABC coverage:

    “People don’t realise this is a minority government … and yet Colin Barnett has governed like a majority leader.”

    So… even without the numbers he was a pompous, arrogant arse…

    And.. wait… it looks like he has the numbers this time, to validate his world view… looks like bubble boy gets the last laugh tonight.

    At least until we start hailing the Great Leader Buswell…


  13. RubyRuby says:

    Oh. Janet Woollard’s conceded Alfred Cove.

    Surely a position can be found for her somewhere.

    Youth? Alcohol abuse? Watercraft safety?


  14. Bento says:

    Dear god Julie Bishop is an unpleasant person.


  15. Misspent yoof says:

    Even SDTT’s kids find him tedious. Yawning at the admission of defeat.


  16. Scanners says:

    I see that although Adele Carles received only 5.68% of the Freo vote and has apparently gone into hiding, she’s contemplating becoming Mayor. Is this the most extreme example of being self-delusional ever?


    • rottobloggo says:

      and Jan ter Horst got 0.96%!


    • Self delusion is the number of people who are saying how good McGowan was and comparing him to wait for it Deff Geoff Gallop! Deff Geof had integrity, honesty and ideas – ideas such as banning Brian Burke. McGowan has nothing. Never has had any qualities. Never will have . Buying a new suit does not make you a leader.


      • Scanners says:

        Yes, I even heard Stephen Smith make that comparison on the ABC with Kezza and Julie Bishop. Although to be fair to the Silver Fox, even while he was delivering said opinion he looked sheepish, which immediately afterward changed to being downright embarrassed after he realised what he’d said, which then became completely terrified as he saw “Death Stare” Bishop preparing to go in for the kill.


        • Sirs,

          I find it extremely odd that there are still suggestions Labor ran a good campaign this election. Even more unbelievable are claims that Mark McGowan is somehow “energetic.” Mr. McGowan is the complete opposite of energetic. Tepid, unenthusiastic and bland are words that have always come to mind when Mr. McGowan’s name comes up. He has well earned the reputation over the past decade of having the personality of a slightly damp teatowel. Comparisons with former leader Geoff Gallop are an insult to Dr. Gallop. Geoff Gallop, had honesty, integrity, ideas and an actual personality. It’s hard to know which former Labor leader to compare Mark McGowan with. Alan Carpenter had a personality but no ideas, Eric Ripper had integrity but no personality. Brian Burke had a personality and ideas, but no integrity. Mr. McGowan doesn’t have anything. Buying a suit doesn’t make you a leader.


        • Snuff says:

          I thought the only comparison Smith made was the similar number of seats they won when they lost their first tilt, from which Gallop was then successful 4 years later. I thought the best comment on Smith’s “we have been a drag on Mark” statement, however, probably came from Colin Barnett himself; “As I heard one commentator saying this morning, if it was all about federal issues why is Labor ahead of the Liberal Party in Victoria?” Albeit somewhat mischievous, given that I don’t think anyone claimed it was all about federal issues, perhaps still a fair call.


    • Bento says:

      Narrowly beating ‘informal’.


  17. Scanners says:

    So Adele Carles was relatively successful then? Out from hiding you come “beautiful girl” Adele, the role of Mayor awaits, with your name wrote large upon it. The Mayoral robes will doubtless offer quite a degree of allure to yet more members of the enemy for your powers of seduction, you saucy minx you. Oh sorry, I didn’t mean that last bit, I actually meant to write “incredibly stupid person.”


    • Russell Woolf's Lovechild says:

      Adele needs to find a higher paying job than that. It’s like in WWE where The Buzz has climbed up on the turn-buckles and is just about to deliver a financial flying knee drop on Ms Carles. Shame the Supreme Court isn’t pay per view.
