Don't let the door hit you on your way out

And so expires the term of one of the most hostile governments to liberal democracy in recent memory. I celebrated with some damn fine Japanese malt beer: the convenience store didn't carry chardonnay. How did you celebrate?

(P.S. Good effort, Jen!)

Howard's concession speech. Highly remiss of him, don't you think, not to acknowledge the staunch support of the Murdoch press throughout his reign (despite their recommending a vote for Rudd this time around).

Rudd's victory speech. Shorter Rudd:

I heartily concur!

UPDATE: OK, I can't resist posting more Keating in top-flight . . .

And this from a time when the term "One Nation" meant something entirely different in Australian politics . . .
