Tony Abbott can't do or say anything right. Anyone would think that he was the PM and the MSM was determined to destroy him.
Whenever anything is done or said about The Government which could be criticised the MSM seems to go to Abbott and ask him what he'd do, what his policies are... Hello? Tony Abbott is the leader of the opposition.
So, today's TEN Breaking News is that Tony insulted the memory of a Queensland soldier killed recently in Afghanistan. I've just read the article in the Hun and honestly, truly, the idiom used is one which is well understood by those in the services. That expression is used all the time. It's a way of coping with the awful things which cannot be changed, but which must be dealt with.
Bad shit happens when you are a soldier in a war zone. If the MSM doesn't get that, particularly the juvenile dope trying to put Abbott on the spot and receiving no reply, they should pack up their crayons and quit.
Here's Tim Blair's take on this lynching.
Here's Andrew Bolt's take on it.
