Lush, could you please exile yourself from the politics thread before we do? Like, far far away?

Yeah but our current PM (and as a result caretaker PM until this is all dealt with). Is a woman, so we got a woman there and it's still hung. Basically we can just expect to go back to the polls in 18 months because no one will have enough power to do anything. There will be some kind of no confidence thing or something. On the plus side even if Labor reforms government with out balance of power there is no way they can get the internet filter through.

I think this was sort of an introduction commercial, you wouldn't expect actual campaign issues from it.

Well, I don't expect actual campaign issues at all, but I resent the implication that I'm not supposed to.

It's fairly standard fare, lurk.

Ad 1:  "Hi, I'm Joe Candidate, I love America, baseball and apple pie.  The other guys are bad, I'm good.  Vote for me.  I approve of this message."

Ad 2: "Hi, Joe Candidate again.  The other guys want to do all these horrible things on <insert issue>, I think we should do this, this, and this instead.  Vote for me. I approve of this message."

Great picture, munchkin.  Though I'm trying to figure out where and why that would take place, and i'm drawing a blank.

This picture taken during President Obama's trip to Austin a couple of weeks ago (by White House photographer Pete Souza) clearly shows the president hasn't lost his sense of humor. The White House Trip Director, Marvin Nicholson, decided to weigh himself as the group went through the University of Texas volleyball locker room. He didn't see the president's toe on the scales and must have been shocked at how much weight he had "gained".

Not really politcal but stil pretty funny.

[Commercial]

I honestly can't find it but I seem to recall that there was an episode of the Simpsons where Mr. Burns was running for mayor and there's a scene during this montage of him campaigning, talking about "those fat cats in Washington". It was in Season 2, so this was yeeeears ago.

It's almost a perfect mockery of this commercial, though.

I don't know what's disappointing: That this tactic is used, or that it works.
