Ah, to experience Kevin's rich and thoughtful inner life.

Wrong again, Fiona! The pointy end of Rudd's hypocrisy is that a few years back, to the hosannas of the leftist media, he assumed the moral high ground to condemn John Howard & the Coalition for certain policies - policies which, without the slightest blush or apology (which we know he's so good at - if it doesn't implicate himself and yet pleases the left) he's now adopted and even exceeded in severity, albeit with an incompetence unknown to Howard. BTW: how about a cartoon exposing people like Julian Burnside, who refuses to condemn Rudd on this matter because it might mean votes for the coalition?
