Day 23 of NaBloPoMo 2007
So tomorrow is the Australian federal election. It's been an interesting campaign, and the result tomorrow will be very interesting.
What i found extremely surprising this morning, was that the local Brisbane newspaper, The Courier Mail actually endorsed one of the political parties for people to vote for! I won't mention which party and leader they endorsed because it really is irrelevant to the issue, but WTF?!
When does a media organisation formally endorse a political for people to vote for, and then actually print it in their publications? I'm not sure if The Courier Mail has done it in every election, but i find it troubling. What every happened to the neutrality of the press??
Speaking of the media, Channel 10 is running some funny ads for their coverage tomorrow night... of them showing Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (wouldn't it be fitting if the Government gets re-elected!). I've been trying to find a link to the ad, but i can't seem to find it on the internet.
This video is funny, even if it is very pro-Labor.
Anywho, it won't make a difference who i vote for tomorrow as we live in the opposition leader's seat, and i don't see him not winning his own seat tomorrow.
