Samuel Gordon-Stewart sighting! Turning out for Elizabeth Lee

By johnboy - 8 October 2012 28

A real blast from the past in the Canberra Times today with Samuel Gordon Stewart turning up in a puff piece for the Liberals’ law lecturing fitness instructor Elizabeth Lee.

The winningest blogger ever produced by the ACT was last seen taking part in Gina Rinehart’s failed coup attempt so it’s good to know he’s still kicking around.

Samuel’s 2007 run for the seat of Fraser as an independent was captured on YouTube.

A funny but completely harmless little tory.

I went and had a poke around his blog. What a funny little guy (and I mean that in the least offensive way possible). He seems like he’s 25 going on 60.

I particularly enjoyed his correspondence with various radio personalities. It reminded me of Adrian Mole’s correspondence with John Tydeman of the BBC.

Yeah, I get a kind of perverse enjoyment from reading his site. So misguided in so many ways and as you say 25 going on 60 – even his music taste is mostly depressingly dated.

He is even still pushing the climate change is bullsh1t bandwagon.

I’m pretty sure he would have called in to Alan Jones to give him support for all the bullying poor Jones has copped and he probably also thinks the Jones apology was short, sincere and on topic.

Slightly OT, but I sat next to Ms Lee and some younger supporters at Ainslie for the AFL GF.

I must warn any potential Lee/Liberal voters that she appeared to be supporting Sydney.

So, we have evidence that Zed is using a car that has NSW number plates AND a report that one of the local Liberal candidates barracks for the Sydney Swans!

Quick, someone call Katy’s dirt unit! 🙂

Oh yeah, I meant it to be no offense. Each to their own.

I sometimes wonder if, for example, I’m the only Canberran who regularly listens to Glenn Beck’s radio show.

Do you listen for the insightful, intelligent and balanced analysis of current events and politics?

Because it is none of those things.

So I’m not alone in listening to Glenn Beck in Canberra then?

Well I certainly don’t listen to talk radio for “balance”. I listen because the host has a view on current events with which I may or may not agree, or in the case of Glenn’s show, three hosts with somewhat differing views. I also listen for entertainment.

I expect news to provide a more balanced approach than talk shows as talk shows are about opinions and views. That said, I don’t believe that any one news source can provide balance either as everything presented in all forms of the media is shaped by the world view of the person or people presenting and producing it. Multiple sources of news, with slightly different takes on events, and talk shows putting forth more opinionated takes on events, are in my view collectively the way to achieve balance as, with all of those differing views and bits of information, one can gain a better understanding of what really happened and how different people view it.

Back to the specific example, I see more intelligence and insight in Glenn’s show than you do. Perhaps that’s because I “get” Glenn’s sense of humour and can tell when he is being serious and when he is using humour to make a point where his point is not the exact words he has spoken. For someone who doesn’t understand Glenn’s sense of humour, I can see how his show could seem like unintelligible nonsense. I, though, gain entertainment and insight from it, even when I don’t agree with him or his co-hosts.

Ah, my friend, many happy, happy hours in the archives await you!!

I remember when SGS was always on the RiotACT. Fun times, especially when there was the odd catch-up…. A lot of regular Rioters have sorta moved on. It’s a shame.
