One great thing about [Roger Douglas], as I argued recently, is that he's a conviction politician. But his convictions are not libertarian. If anything, Roger's return opens things up even more for Libertarianz. Rodney's born-again soft-cockery and Roger's compulsionism mean the chasm between Libz and ACT is greater than ever.
And what about those 'cabinet prospects' for Dodger Rugless that have got a few people hyperventilating? Perigo again:
Rodney wants National to commit to putting Roger in cabinet. Key says: "I'm not going to go and run a government that slashes benefits and privatises off all the assets that the state continues to own; I'm not going to run a radical agenda." Rodney says he wants nothing more radical than "caps" on taxes and spending.
Time was when blokes flashed their members to see who had the biggest. These guys are competing to see who has the limpest.
Nothing much left to say, is there?
