My Latest Twitter Updates

  • Ghosts of elections past? http://bit.ly/ahezG2 – Peter Hartcher on how Rudd is emulating Howard in his 2004 contest against Latham. #
  • @smurray38 Hehehe… at least Savva's book looks like it might be a genuinely "inside" account. Let's reserve judgement till we see it. in reply to smurray38 #
  • @smurray38 Hartcher has it right today but aren't you also sick of this tendency to view every election as a mirror image of an earlier one? in reply to smurray38 #
  • Time to remove my search column #chilcot on TweetDeck – it's even more abusive and unhinged than last night. #
  • RT @smurray38: I wouldn't mind so much but noone seems to draw lessons from the standalone Senate election on 21 November 1970 #
  • @smurray38 It's the lack of awareness of the electoral implications of Frank Forde's prime ministership that disturbs me. in reply to smurray38 #
  • @smurray38 Election victories are all alike; every election defeat is a defeat in its own way. in reply to smurray38 #
  • @smurray38 Not to mention the raw, unvarnished, simple truth of Bill Snedden: "We didn't lose, we just didn't get enough votes to win." in reply to smurray38 #
  • @smurray38 I'm surprised Gilbert has the time to be on Chilcot. Hasn't he got 38 books to write this month? in reply to smurray38 #
  • @smurray38 Put your claws away, Julie! in reply to smurray38 #
  • @WNBSprague I shall be interested to see how many feeding hands she's prepared to bite. All power to her. in reply to WNBSprague #
  • "She is a Content Producer providing keyword rich articles for individuals and small businesses." … A freelance writer? #
  • @theburgerman Aren't you just a content producer in a new paradigm, facilitating an interface between consumers and information gatherers? in reply to theburgerman #
  • @thewetmale http://bit.ly/bZnG0k in reply to thewetmale #
  • @MacYourselfhome Nothing wrong with that! I know people who earn a living on eBay. Good luck to her – it's just the language that grates. in reply to MacYourselfhome #
  • @smurray38 @thewetmale @MacYourselfhome I think we've just quadrupled her daily traffic… #
  • @WNBSprague He hasn't outsmarted anyone yet… in reply to WNBSprague #
  • So the SMH "Reclaim Your Vote" petition only got 24,000 signatures. http://bit.ly/9tF2CJ – Jack Lang would have killed for such hostility. #

  • http://twitpic.com/10gl16 – First sentence of Ch1 of Niki Savva's book has 40 words, 8 commas and 4 semi-colons! #

  • "One bald guy with glasses becomes prime minister, and they all think they can do it." – Costello on Reith as leadership rival (Savva book) #
  • Glenn Milne as Danny DeVito's character in "Twins" with Costello as Arnie. (Savva book) #
  • Well, Niki Savva's book is a rollicking good read. Done with the skimming, time now to start at the beginning. #
  • @stemcd @billgoodall "Michelle Grattan was a serial harasser." Not necessarily a criticism until you see the way she reported the story… #
  • @stemcd @billgoodall Just whetting your appetites further. Great anecdotes but the insight into how things really work is its value. #
  • Why Do People Love 'Catcher in the Rye'? http://bit.ly/9n5CCb – Gish Jen in The New Republic. Pardon my preoccupation with Salinger. #
