Killing English Softly

I write very few political posts on this blog, but I couldn't pass this one up.

Whatever you think of our PM, he has some awful ways with English.

Here is the Chaser's take on Ruddspeak. Priceless!

Click on this link for a particularly egregious example, and find our where the name of this post came from at the same time. (Anyone who is interested in International Policy, the Interpreter is a good place to visit.)

The Chaser piece reminded me of the following effort on Obama, but while the Obama piece is reverential, the Rudd piece is just "taking the piss". Again, whatever you think of Obama, he has a wonderful way with words.
