Inferiority Complex

Jennifer Hawkins, Robert Doyle

Each time I find myself standing next to Robert Doyle, I find myself surprised at how short the guy is. The last time that had happened was last week as I was walking through the city with the following Renai LeMay tweet still in my mind:
I look forward to the day when "liberal" is not a simile for "right-wing nutbag"
This combination of the clash and the tweet made me think: could it be that the guy’s a right-wing nutbag as a direct result of some sort of a height related inferiority complex?
An interesting theory. Alas, it is refuted by the tallish Peter Costello next to whom I also had the dubious pleasure of standing on a couple of occasions.

To those that don’t know what this post is all about: Robert Doyle is the Liberal mayor of Melbourne. He recently won his claim to "right-wing nutbag" fame when he used police force to evict Occupy protestors and have them harassed all over Melbourne in a manner that seems rather illegal to me and to The Age (see here). After all, agree with the Occupy movement or not, I was under the impression we have the freedom to protest in Australia. Not by Doyle we do.

Nothing but the best for my blog.
It's funny to see how well the photo demonstrates Darwin's Theory of Evolution at work: Doyle looks exactly like a rooster trying to impress the Hawkins chicken.

I like the direction this blog is going too.
More tall blonde chicks, less anything else
