But this post isn't going to be about politics ... because I think politics is B.O.R.I.N.G.
But there was one little thing that caught my attention ... that I just can't help but mention.
Kevin Rudd ... our outgoing Prime Minister ... as in departing not gregarious ... spent a portion of Friday campaigning in my neck of the woods.
So as I caught up with the news on Friday evening ... I paid particular attention to that story. Not because it was particularly interesting ... but I wanted to see if I recognised anyone doing a nudie run in the background.
I saw our departing PM kissing babies and BBQing a few sausages ... but I didn't recognise the woman with him.
Which is why I found my inability to recognise her somewhat fascinating. Of course this little mystery required some investigation ... and I immediately went in search of clues ... okay, I google imaged her ... and came up with this.
Now I wanted to be fair, unbiased and impartial ... so I then google imaged her major opponent.

Normal, everyday shot.
Now clearly these ladies are both highly intelligent, extremely capable and naturally beautiful women ... who have been photoshopped to within an inch of their lives.
How can we vote for the "real" them ... when we can't even recognise the "real" them?
Of course I would NEVER do anything so vain and superficial.
