Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Lying liar update

In April, Tim Blair alerted us to a cringe-worthy moment at the G20 Conference when Kevin Rudd took umbrage at President Obama's description of the President of Brazil as the most popular politician on Earth.

Flummoxed that his own messiah status was being overlooked, Rudd attempted to clarify by saying, "the world's most popular long term politician..." by which time the assembled crowd were ignoring him.

Now we have this Rudd-quote from the 7.30 Report:
"I do not pay attention to opinion polls when they've been up; I do not pay attention to opinion polls now..."

Has anyone polled the public to see what they think of Kev taking any notice of polls - and what's Kev's opinion of said poll/s?
