Beautifully written

From Tati Sofaris, writing at Quadrant:

[…] I endured a pair of dim bulbs performing for moderator Chris Uhlmann & Co, each improbably attempting to present himself as a something resembling the audience whose votes both seek. That’s not to say that either man is dim. One doesn’t mount a long-term campaign of erosion and subversion against one’s leader and see it succeed, as did Turnbull, without a measure of rat cunning encoded in the DNA. Nor can Shorten’s ascent to the very top of Labor’s greasy pole be regarded as a negligible achievement. A talent for preaching class war to horny handed sons of toil while quietly accepting campaign contributions and logistical support from their oppressors speaks of a certain agility.

Worth reading in full.
