One of the great political videos of all time

Sydney Morning Herald

This was one of the greatest political videos of all time…utterly devastating and the result of a judiciously timed leak designed to do the most damage.

It is still being played out as Police investigate:

THE Australian Federal Police have moved to a full-scale investigation of the leak of damaging video footage of Kevin Rudd repeatedly swearing and banging a desk, which helped trigger February’s leadership spill.

The federal police at first said it was not investigating the leaked video, which showed out-takes from a recording made within the prime minister’s office during Mr Rudd’s leadership, which were anonymously uploaded on YouTube.

Later, the federal police said it had received a referral and was ”evaluating the information provided”.

    Good.   They should investigate it.   Weapons can produce these effects.

    All politicians should be trained to have tactics they can use, in case this sort of sudden blood-boil feeling strikes.  

    The glass of water.  Stand up and walk.   Call a break.  The relief interruption.
