It appears also that the restaurant owner is a 'Labor man'.Dear Mal,
I have been following the rubbish that has been on the news today. I would like to confirm what actually happened: there were never any menus distributed on the tables or in the restaurant. I created a mock menu myself as a light-hearted joke, however as I said I never produced them for public distribution. Unfortunately a staff member saw the mock menu, and unbeknownst to myself, posted it on their facebook. It now appears that a third party for political reasons has distributed it, yet I can reassure you that no such menu was distributed on the night. As you know no one at the dinner was privy to such a menu, and it is so unfortunate that an in-house joke between myself and my son has caused you great problems and embarrassment.

Van Onselen is an Abbott supporter and works for the Murdoch press.
ETA: I'm trying to think of a suitable punishment for myself for breaking the rule.

I couldn't give a rats who made the 'joke', the fact that it was considered a joke is utterly disgusting.
Gillard is not igniting any 'gender wars' that were not already aflame.
I am wearing a blue tie, so maybe not.
It seems that the Labor speech writer's comments have fallen on deaf ears of those who are easily offended. I'll quote Bob Ellis again (who is paid by Labor):
http://www.ellistabletalk.com/All this is delusional anyway. Abbott’s character flaws, and his connection with pederasts, and his habit of f***ing girls while dressed as a priest, will do for him I think, and bring back the Undecideds, and Labor will win with 39 percent or 40, and 52 percent twi party preferred.
Never mind. Lets all blame Abbott for the private menu created by a restaurant owner for himself. Naughty Abbott
Can anyone find the story in any of the Murdoch press? I can't see it anywhere in news.com.au but it's on SMH and ABC.
The reality is that misogyny is so ingrained in politics in this country that it's beyond a freakin' joke. People can back pedal as much as they like - oh it was a private joke blah blah bullsh!t, they can prop up their straw men - but Julia said this! Women on a forum said that! BULLSH!T!
You vote for the libs? Stop scurrying in the dirt and saying but, but, but. Demand that your party be better.
