If you could bottle some of Rudd's performances, you'd put the manufacturers of Mogadon out of business. He seems incapable of producing an original or interesting phrase. It's all pollie-speak and repetition.No. I'd rather read the transcripts, and then, only if I HAVE to.
In interviews, he has a special fondness for the phrase: "What we've said is." In other words, this is old news so you can switch off.
Because she's interesting, Palin will get people to listen to her, even if they don't necessarily agree with where she's coming from. The Rudd technique defies anyone to listen for long.
