There’s an old political trope that says left wing parties can’t hold power for long before they start turning on each other and right wingers are much more disciplined and balanced. This is clearly bullshit as conservatives and especially extreme right wingers continue to eat themselves around the world.
The latest to provide me with some joy on this front is Pauline Hanson’s One Nation party here in Australia. They appear to be proving yet again if you get a group of fringe extremists together they’ll find reasons to turn on each other as much as they turn on others.

Hanson is staggeringly stupid, but has an intriguing bit of rat cunning in her. I’m amazed she’s got so far – it’s depressing, and says awful things about Australia.
By the way, lots of LOLs at your Blogroll entry for ‘Twanna’. Given she’s American, I highly doubt there’s any sense of intelligent irony in her name, but for a sex educator, could she have chosen a more bizarre name than ‘Twanna’? It’s a fairly precise mix of ‘Twat’, ‘Vagina’ and ‘Wanna fuck?’ – if she’d invented the name for her online persona, she’d have struck gold!
