Naturally, National Party blogger David Farrar has been wallowing like a pig in shit over Mike Moore’s comments in the Herald comparing the two, and he seems to think the Stuff image proves his point.
Personally, I think this one’s a much better fit:
After all, if we’re going to compare anyone to Muldoon then we may as well start with someone who’s actually expressed his admiration for the guy:
CAMPBELL: What did you think of Muldoon?
KEY: Well I liked him, um…
KEY: Oh well he was a pretty strong leader and at the time it seemed good ah I think you could look back economically now and say um things necessarily weren’t that flash, ah, but at the time I liked his leadership and he, yeah, he seemed like a strong individual.
And is it just me, or is it kinda creepy how even the wrinkles on their foreheads match up?
