Shake down above the ground, the week is weak of the heart as the lead takes a stand and falls back into the fray. Or at least what passes the muster under the colonel.
Leader of the children, dressed in a yellow skivvy since rebirth, Greg Page of The Wiggles. Page takes down a step from the act off on a chronic health problem in no way related to the chronic, problematic nonetheless for his health and well being. Standing room only, no moving or jumping about. And into the slip, the next new yellow is Sam Moran. Understudy no more, now the leader of the pack.
Swill a pop and inhale a schooner or four at the Walkley Awards. The resulting results in a back hand of apology the next day from Sunday Telegraph's political editor, Glenn Milne, against Crikey head and founder Stephen Mayne. Two hands go to war and from the top of the stands, Mayne flys down below the stage lip with a ranting and a raving from Milne.
Off the top of his head, off his head and spinning in a soundless booth of shout outs to the thinning of his own skin.
Closing out the end of the start and the crumbles start to pick heavy and far louder now at the scab. Leader of the Opposition, Kim Beazley, again attacked over his position. Flanking with a double team on the half court press, the team with a "bucket load," Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard. Now in force to take it out and hold it their own, the two are vying for a leadership change and shuffling of the deck of cards they know as the Labor Party.
Two heads are looking to beat one. Or at least one rotting and festering in the top spot.
All heads in the game and it's on for the push around, the move around and every body do the mess around.
