For the first time since the morning of Mardi Gras 1996, I am not ashamed of Australia’s Federal Government.

Rudd will disappoint me in, oh, let’s be generous and give him ten days or so. But today? Today is sweet. Today the government that brought us Tampa and Woomera and Iraq and the Orwellishly named “NT intervention” and union-breaking twenty years after Thatcher fucked the poor, the government that made race-baiting an accepted part of the national conversation, the government that made me incandescent with rage every time it caught my attention; the Howard government is OVER.
