  • Jolisa,

    Am just milking my last month of being officially young and foolish :-)

    But yes, it was Hyde himself who dismissed his 40-something affair as a youthful indiscretion ... while leading the charge against Bill Clinton for similarly youthful and foolish activities. A classic of the genre.

  • FletcherB,

    It appears there may be someone within ACT with some integrity?

    "Hide, meanwhile, was stranded in Hong Kong at his son's 21st birthday celebrations, and had lost his chief press secretary, who walked out of his job earlier in the day." (from John Armstrong here)

    Is that "I cant spin your shit anymore, so bye bye"?

    I see you're taking a Garrett and schtick approach.

    Yeah, that's what caught my attention in that article too. Plus the drunken disorderly at Heathrow.Another oiled rigger eh?

    Mr Garrett had "a big battle ahead of him" to regain credibility as Act's law and order spokesman, he said.

    Nevertheless, he believed Mr Garrett deserved a second chance.

    All men deserve second chances. But some deserve second chances more than others. Pihema Cameron, anyone?

    I gather the new press secretary is the staffer who has previously complained about Garrett's attitude to women. The fun never ends.

    I'm sensing a race to be the first to get the book on the shelves. Be a fascinating read. I'm going to suggest a title of "Fucking morons I used to work with".

  • chris,

    I stand corrected Sacha, "cockhead" not "cocksucker". Sorry about that. My cock alarm went off. Better I just let it slide. ☮

  • uroskin,

    You know, Gio, given the ACT Party's love of the Cato Institute, paraphrasing a classical Cato line about Rodney really is the bee's knees (to me).

    Wrong Cato. The Cato Institute is named after Cato the Younger (and a dishy piece of statue he was). Unlike that of his great-granddaddy Cato the Elder who invented the "Carthago delenda est" brainfart.

    That's not to say that the Cato Institute has not been moving towards the Elder's philosophy of carpet-bombing enemies all in the name of a neo-con revolution.

  • Christopher Dempsey,

    This is what troubles me most - he's a faux celebrity because he's a malevolent miscreant. He's no Tim Shadbolt or even Ken Mair. He seems entirely devoid of authenticity (whatever you think of Shadbolt or Mair, they appear sincere).

    Why does NZ reward and not revile this kind of character?

  • Rich Lock,

    How do you wield a top psychiatrist -- grab it by the hair and swing it around? Grip the hips and deploy like a Klingon bat'leth? Chop your offensive mental health professional into fist-sized chunks and fling away, saving the bones and sinews to be crafted into bows, knives and musical instruments?

    Ego Whip: Your rapid mental lashings assault the ego of your enemy, debilitating its confidence. The target takes 1d4 points of Charisma damage, or half that amount (minimum 1 point) on a successful save. A target that fails its save is also dazed for 1 round.

    That is the worst taste joke I have ever seen on PAS, I hope.

    It'll tie in nicely with the New Zealand edition of The Running Man. A leaked memo has just revealed that snuff TV has effectively been legalised in a secret deal with the Department of Corrections.

    or was it Kato - that common Japanese surname - Do you have leecence for that Minke?
    or Kato - The Green Hornet's sidekick as portrayed by Bruce Lee on TV.

    TV3 and TVNZ are, most likely, fighting over the rights to the blubbery one in their continuing race to the bottom, or in this case arse.

    Or Kato Kaelin, a witness in the OJ Simpson murder trial. Or Kato, Nicole Simpson's dog.
