Rudd becomes PM

Dr. Death scrubs up well, doesn’t he? But were those ear canals so spotless you could eat your wax off them? You bet. Both had been freshly harvested. And only hours after Rudd became Australia’s 26th Prime Minister the current account deficit improved and the outlook for immediate future interest rate rises diminished. Rudd has also ratified the Kyoto Protocol (John Quiggin points out that this has already improved our relation with Indonesia), insisted he will keep a close eye on petrol and grocery prices, urged the Defense Department to cut bureaucrats and increase soldiers in the field and knocked back a dinner invitation with the GG. It is believed that tomorrow Rudd will launch Australia’s education revolution.

Harry - Haven't you noticed it's been raining? Just like Bob Hawke did, he's broken the drought!

If you'd known he was going to do that, I reckon even you would have voted for him.

That's the most persuasive case for voting for him I have yet heard.

Though I must admit I am pleased Australia has ratified Kyoto. Howard should have done it.
