Observations of the campaign trails from TV3’s Ali Ikram….

Not sure what I think of those “bleeps” on the John Key excerpt…

    Ikram’s segments are very entertaining (certainly his best work recently), although his comments tend towards the “National-victory-is-a-forgone-conclusion” line a bit too readily, which is unfortunate.

    “You know you can trust Helen Clark and Labour”

    That would almost tie with Winston’s ad as biggest joke of the day.

    Sarah

    Almost a tie, Winston saying “we stand in the way of vested interests who have a different plan for NZ” was just beautiful.

    … that’s why he was so open and transparent with his party funding.

    Funny. That IS funny. “low level profanity”. Funny,

    poor dog who knows where that nose has been..

    “You know you can trust Helen Clark and Labour’
    Better than one man band only I know what I,m talking about Key.

    Oh it’s a gem. Maybe they share the same script co-ordinator.

    That dog knew another dog when he smelled one.

    ‘That dog knew another dog when he smelled one.’

    actually I thought it was bullshit it picked up

  10. Lampie 10

    hmmm grab an Indian. Must have even smaller hands in Papatoetoe than Botany

    “That dog knew another dog when he smelled one”
    Youre right Ianmac – note how the first thing dogs do is sniff and lick each others arses.( not that I’m into watching them do that – just an observation)
    And to all you trolls out there its true and it did happen!!!! Not something that I would subject my dog to!!! The owner should be tarred and feathered for letting that happen to his dog.

    Too right. Where is the SPCA when you need ’em?

  13. TE 13

    When John Key met me he swore as well. i was like um… alright then?

  14. Draco T Bastard 14

    Politicians swearing are just proving, beyond a shadow of doubt, that they’re not up for the job.

  15. J Mex 15

    Yes Draco, because no good New Zealander ever swears.

    Nice handle by the way.

    Politicians swearing are just proving, beyond a shadow of doubt, that they’re not up for the job.

    How did you feel Draco when Steve Maharey used the “f” word in the House recently?

    Having said that, maybe I’m a prude, but I don’t think it’s dignified for John Key to use profane language. The clip with Jeanette bungy-jumping was very funny though.

  17. Dom 17

    Tim – there is a difference between telling Jonathan Coleman to f-off in the House during a heated debate and rattling the same word to some random strangers on the street.

    My god, profanity – the last refuge of the terminally uncool.

  18. Draco T Bastard 18

    How did you feel Draco when Steve Maharey used the “f’ word in the House recently?

    The same way I felt about JK swearing in that video.

    My god, profanity – the last refuge of the terminally uncool.

    anybody offended by a swear word is infantilised and using the pretext of being offended to deny reality.i.e. dweebs and tight underpants jobs trying to weasel out of being a part of life. congrats to steve maharey and if somebody would tell me who he told to f… off then I wil do the same just for the hell o f it.
