Pow! Whack! Wollop! – and they are not even in a union!

It seems that this morning there was a “regrettable incident” in the Liberal party ranks this morning.

Liberal party sources say there was a “regrettable incident in the party room” on Tuesday morning when NSW Liberal backbencher Alby Schultz became angry and shirt-fronted Victorian MP Chris Pearce.

The altercation allegedly followed a dispute over three-cornered contests – when Nationals and Liberal MPs contest the same seat in an election.

Imagine the outcry if they were in a union?

Maybe Galaxy needs to push-poll with a question on whether Liberal MP’s will “turn nasty” if they don’t get their own way.

Cheney of Heart, on some things

Amazing how once someone gets out of power they finally gain a conscience – well on some things anyway.

Dick Cheney yesterday appeared at a luncheon in Washington where he said that he supports gay marriage.

“I think people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish, any kind of arrangement they wish. And I think that’s the way it ought to be handled today, that is, on a state-by-state basis. Different states will make different decisions. But I don’t have any problem with that. I think people ought to get a shot at that,”

Did he do anything to support this when he had a chance? I think not. In fact, wasn’t the Bush administration pushing for a change to the federal constitution to stop any gay marriages?

But if you read on in the article that he is still trying to defend the Bush administration’s stance on prisioners at Gitmo, and he still wants to link Iraq to nuclear weapons. Even though there was no program in Iraq.
