Chief Turnip becomes “biggest knob”?

September 14th, 2006 at 01:27pm

Just having a look at the 2CA website (hooray, they finally updated the AFL schedule), I noticed that they are running a webpoll, namely “Who is the biggest knob?”, with the options being Germaine Greer, Jon Stanhope, The Breakfast Boys, Tom Cruise and Paris Hilton.

As I write this post, the results are as follows:

Jon Stanhope 56.0%
Germaine Greer 28.0%
Tom Cruise 6.0%
Paris Hilton 6.0%
The Breakfast Boys 4.0%

So our beloved Chief Turnip is Canberra’s biggest knob…sounds about right.

    56% for Stanhope? Wow. He’s even more unpopular than Germaine Greer !
    Mr. 56% should consider sticking his head in an oven and turning the gas on.

    I would have voted for Tom Cruise.

    Of course it’s not surprising that Stanhope is so unpopular – given the MASSIVE increase in rates and other charges, a lack of police on the beat, not to mention the proposed school closures .

    Listen Stanhope, if you’re not going to gas yourself, the LEAST you could do is give yourself a double uppercut to the chin !

    On second thought , make that a TRIPLE uppercut Stanhope !

    Oh, and by the way, try not to ramble on when you’re asked a simple question !

    John, I don’t think those comments are very positive.

  • 6. John B1_B5  |  September 15th, 2006 at 11:52 am

    Make that a quadruple uppercut !
    Oh, and try to do SOMETHING right for a change Stanhope, and make sure you knock yourself out !

  • 7. Samuel  |  September 15th, 2006 at 12:01 pm

    When it comes to Stanhope (and his cohort), there’s not much to be positive about!

  • 8. John B1_B5  |  September 15th, 2006 at 12:48 pm

    The only positive thing about Stanhope is MASSIVE increases in rates (and other charges ) .
    You can bet your sweet bippy on that !

    I’d say its more likely that Stanhope is unpopular given 2CA’s listener-base and the fact that there are no other politicians on the list. Coincidence? No way!

  • 10. John B1_B5  |  September 15th, 2006 at 3:16 pm

    It certainly was a limited list of ‘candidates’, no doubt about that.

    How about another poll here (on Samuel’s Blog) with a wider selection ?
    Samuel can make up the list, and include a bunch of ACT politicians in order of popularity or unpopularity .
    How about it Samuel ?
