    It appears that Mark Latham has penned yet another bunch of unpleasant remarks about his erstwhile colleagues and opponents. It is elegantly entitled "A Conga Line of Suckholes".

    Here are some comments from today's "Crikey.com".

    "Never throw mud. You may miss your mark, but you will have dirty hands." -- Joseph Parker


    "A sneer is the weapon of the weak." -- James Russell Lowell

    "There's a very fine line between a groove and a rut; a fine line between eccentrics and people who are just plain nuts." -- Christine Lavin


    "Resort is had to ridicule only when reason is against us." -- Thomas Jefferson

    "A reputation once broken may possibly be repaired, but the world will always keep their eyes on the spot where the crack was." -- Joseph Hall


    "The reputation of a man is like his shadow, gigantic when it precedes him, and pigmy in its proportions when it follows." -- Alexandre De Talleyrand-Prigord

    you serious? lol
    What'll the next one be titled ? "Etiquette for aspiring Prime Ministers" lol.

    maybe speaking of the living, surely speaking of the dead, there are categories of insult how our phrases with be read, - at the top, respect and dignity, then moving down alas, - it all gravitates to creeps, then cringe, then cruelty, then crass.

    They documented his downfall on Media Watch this week. The guy is self destructive.

    He is probably saying,

    I am still fighting for you, Bill Leak, against these Communists, that don't believe in Freedom of Speech.

    Not sure about the communist tags, but he certainly strikes a chord for those who remember the days when we weren't forced to apologise for being proud and nationalistic, but then again there's not a whole lot of beacons that can give us that patriotic feeling anymore.
