Mulcahy not a naughty boy after all

By Joe Canberran 5 February 2008 30

ABC Online
is reporting that ex-Liberal now Independent MLA Richard Mulcahy has been found by the AHA (Aust. Hotel Association) not to have been a naughty boy after all. No surprise that he is now saying that this confirms that the whole nasty mess was a plot by his political enemies.

For those interested Riot’s full history of Mulcahy’s career can be found here but the hits are his benching by the libs, the immediate fall-out and his attempts to gag the-riotact

Re Elvis’s “I met him and he seems a decent bloke” – most pollies make an effort in meeting people to present themselves as interested and decent. It’s rare to find ones who don’t try to present in person as personable and friendly. (Well, OK there’s Steve Pratt, but there’s always an exception!) Hence doorknocking, stalking RiotACT etc so they can give a personal touch to people which might be remembered on polling day. I’ve met lots of pollies who pass the “he seem’s OK based on a personal chat” basis, but I tend to form my judgement and political view based more on how they and their parties present in a policy sense, and/or how their own ethical behaviour presents. On that basis I continue to have some reservations over Mr Mulcahy.

“So this time I will type slowly so hopefully you’ll understand.”……no prizes for coming second Ingeegoodbee.

And I can see that your “life is wonderful” as you are such a little ray of sunshine.

He’ll turn the wine into water and then piss off with the funding.

I want to see him turn water into wine!

Maybe he’s the messiah, and not a naughty boy?

Mr Evil 11:26 am 06 Feb 08

Sorry seems to be the hardest word. 🙂

Kevin07 will say sorry….

Mr Evil 10:23 am 06 Feb 08

I must admit I did feel a bit sorry for him when he was on the news last night giving his press conference: he did look like all this had really gotten to him, especially when he said that Zed had been to his house and met his family, but wouldn’t say sorry to him now.

Still, maybe he should either quit politics, or use this as a chance to redeem himself in the eyes of the electorate?

Crikey you miss the point once again. So this time I will type slowly so hopefully you’ll understand. I don’t give a rats bum whether Richard Mulcahy ended up leading the ACT Liberals or not – I just wish someone (anyone) would take the fight up to StanDope and his pinko cohorts. Mulcahy’s dummy spit was indefensible regardless of how his colleagues treated him – his handling of that tension established his unfitness to lead – so now he’s irrelevant and a waste of valuable opposition space that could be better applied to sticking the boot into the melon heads. An as far as being a threat to the likes of Brendan Smyth- mate I’ve seen potted plants that would be a threat to Brendan Smyth.

And Crikey, thanks for your concern, but if you must know my life is wonderful.
