In Today's Australian Political News, the Prime Minister believes that a politician accepting $3000 bottles of wine as a gift is perfectly reasonable, provided you don't conveniently forget about it. 

Is this the future of Australian Politics as seen by Tony? Bribery by the front door, but keep your receipts!

In Today's Popey news, Pope Francis tells the mafia they must repent or go to hell, a few short weeks after sending his personal agents to assert that child-rape by priests was protected by Vatican diplomatic immunity.

I'm yet to see any media outlet ask the question. "How many perfectly normal flights have passengers who are actually using stolen passports?"

In particular, I'd imagine air travel would be the primary reason there's a market for stolen passports, particularly in other countries than they were issued where regular identity theft would be less lucrative.

Maybe two stolen passports have enough power to bring down a plane.

That is why they found two now instead of the normal one-per-flight.

In Today's Australian Political News, communications minister Malcolm Turnbull announces that he "cannot think of anybody less demented" than Rupert Murdoch. In his defence, he spends most of his day listening to Abbott.

In a second-shoe-dropping moment, he announced sweeping changes to media ownership regulation that would permit Murdoch to buy up any Australian media outlets he wanted as a little something in exchange for all that free advertising during the election.

In Today's Australian Political News, the prime minister lauds the logging industry as "the ultimate conservationists". Perhaps he has an issue with those long words.

The PM is a suppository of wisdom, isn't he?

In Today's Australian Political News, we discover that the Australian electorate doesn't realise that letting a crazed billionaire gain political power by buying unprecedented amounts of political advertising and bullying election officials is probably a bad idea.

Well, it probably sounds like a great idea to Liberal voters, but they've never been caught making rational decisions.

The good news is that it looks as if the Palmer Unhinged Party will be front and center demanding crazy stuff in the senate on every vote so the population can get a nice up-front view of just how much damage they've caused. Hopefully there will be some retaliatory election reform during this term.

In Today's Australian Political News, the government announces their plan to fix the economy by taxing poor people more and rich people less. Awesome.

Hey, things aren't that bad. The Malaysian Government haven't had flight MH370 charged with sodomy yet. It has to be coming up in their playbook soon, though.

In Today's Australia pseudo-economic news, our government announces that there will be "no more handouts for businesses" while simultaneously repealing carbon tax on large polluters, removing the mining royalty tax that affects major party donors, killing a website critical of processed food healthiness and writing legislation to allow the Murdoch empire to take over all media in the country.

As liberal voters are basically incapable of reading all the way to the end of a paragraph, this seems like a pretty safe bet, politically.

I'm finding it difficult to comprehend how anyone who has been awake for the last decade could be. It was a non stupid party in the more distant past.

Because sometimes you have to look at made up stuff to feel sane.
