So the election has been called. At last. Given the media attention given to bloggers at the recent Democrat convention in the States I bet that some one in Australia will find a couple of people talking about the election on their blogs and create a story about the effect of blogging on Australian politics.
The only problem is I’m going to have wade through six weeks of campaigning before I get my reward. You see, I have this guilty pleasure – I absolutely love watching election night coverage. I’ll sit there flicking between channels, looking at swings, listening to long lists of numbers, contemplating if Kerry O’Brien had that smirk surgically attached to his face and wondering just when Antony Green will explode from all the excitement. I’ve already booked the telly.
I think Rae is making plans to be out that night.
