Teflon is nothing to it

For a giddy minute, until my actual brain kicked in, my heart began to beat a little faster as I watched this morning's email land in the Inbox and saw the subject line in the Age's AM Alert: Letters Link PM to Wheat Scandal.

Of course it was only a rush of blood to the head. He will do what he always, and so very effectively, does: dig his heels in, stick his bottom lip out, and say 'I did not' until it all goes away.

And as we know from bitter experience, even if it is proved beyond all shadow of a doubt that he did, people will vote for him anyway.

It's the Bart Simpson defence, PussCat - "I didn't do it. Nobody saw me. You can't prove a thing!"

He has used it so often it's a wonder he hasn't turned yellow.

You know, he actually looks a bit like Bart. Good eye.

In the end, too much teflon does you more harm than good.

I think this time he won't even have to fight the scandal very hard.

It is as if everyone, including the media, just knows nothing is going to happen.

I mean, think about it - how much worse can it get in terms of nasty corrupt dealings?

Its some kind of sick joke - our Prime Minister doesn't even get tainted by a scandal involving kickbacks to the world's most topical dictatorship.

Might get a t-shirt made up.
