Andrew Bolt -- in sensational form lately -- predicts a Latham election win, on one condition:

That is, if only journalists are allowed to vote.

Journalists like The Sydney Morning Heraldís Mike Seccombe, who just canít wait for The Lord of the Rungs to claim his rightful place in the Lodge:

Through the whole of question time, Latham sat impassively, not interjecting as the Government punched away to no end, just smiling a little at John Howard.

As if to say Is that the best you can do - old man?

Of course, Latham didnít actually say that. But Seccombe wishes and wishes and wishes that he had.

Get it right, Tim, arse-obsessed Latham is Lord of the Ring.

From today's Herald Sun:

'Firing a broadside at his state Labor colleagues, Mr Latham called for a rethink on the billions collected each year from poker machine taxes.'

Anyone who fires broadsides at Victorian Labor - on any issue - deserves all the accolades he can get (while the honeymoon lasts). Sure beats the hell out of Victorian Opposition Leader Doyle's increasingly ineffectual huffing and puffing - the honeymoon sure is over for Mr Negative. Where's the next Mr - or Mrs - Kennett coming from?

I nominate Mr Bolt. Premier Bolt, from Bolttoria.
Man that sounds good.

Seccombe: Australia hater from wayback, not worth reading.
