I'm the first to admit that I don't even have a shadow of a clue what the solution to Sydney's notorious perpetual traffic congestions might be, but stacking the cars probably isn't it.

Election Day

Yay, it's Federal Election Day, and Australia gets to vote. Our options are:

The chick that just can't keep her hands off other peoples' babies, has been part of the Government in charge for the last 3 years, representing the party with a tendency to see new taxes as the best "solution" for pretty much anything, the party that is going to introduce an emissions trading scheme to save the world from evil global warming, the party that still hasn't renounced plans to introduce Australia's answer to Ned Flanders' mandatory internet filtering on ISP level, essentially putting us in the same league as China, Iran, North Korea, and other beacons of freedom.

On the other hand, there's the creepy religious God-botherer who's always up for a run in his budgie smugglers, hasn't got a clue on one of the few areas where the Liberals' policies are actually different from Labor's, and enjoys imposing his moral views, on others, for example by telling women to "save the "greatest gift" until marriage.

Aren't we the lucky country.
