As if the 2 million other ones weren't enough...

There's an obvious skit they could do on facelift about this next week, involving Brash and Kim Hill, and ending with him admitting that he is afraid of her.

That is if they don't just do another version of "desperate spouses".

span said...

good point resistantsoy, but most of the 2 million others won't get a chance to ask him about it on national tv/radio and make him squirm! and i forgot Audrey Young.

I though there was one very big reason: his partner (from Singapore, in case anyone's forgotten). Can anyone imagine her being happy about that sort of old-fashioned chauvinism?

span said...

unfortunately some women are - there were many faxes and emails from women amongst those read out on NatRad yesterday supporting Brash's stance :-( cognitive dissonance i say!

Cognitive dissonance! That's what it is crippling my brain every time I try to get 'Helen Clark' and 'weak' in there at the same time.

I am really looking forward to seeing him up against Kim Hill. She'll eat him all up.

Sending Tau Henare in to bat against Laila Harre doesn't seem like a particularly smart followup either.

span said...

what are Laila and Tau facing off over anon? haven't heard about that yet, but could be good listen/watch...

Was on national radio yesterday, as you can probably imagin Tau did not make a good showing of himself.

span said...

oh dear, poor Tau, he was probably finding the body language hard to read through his dark glasses ;-)

You also forgot Condoleeza Rice.

Now that I'd like to see. I think she could make him cry.

span said...

Assumedly Brash would just give Condi everything she wanted and buckle at the knees!

His wife must win every argument they ever have.
