Senator Kim Carr-Dashian

Isn’t he dapper.  In clothes and grooming befitting a super model.

Senator Kim Carr-Dashian hit the news again earlier this week when he declared that the last federal election results were not the result of a crappy message but rather of a crappy messenger:

It is clearly a problem about the messaging, about the way in which we talk to people,

Clearly the Labor Party has failed to develop a clear and overarching narrative. Rather, the party relied on appealing to selected groups or narrow interests, on the basis of identity politics.

Clearly.

You see, the ALP’s policy platform was spot on.  Just that Bill Shorten was a crappy salesman.

When challenged whether working-class and regional voters were turned off by Labor’s election policies, Senator Carr said: “That is not true. Labor’s policy framework was sound, it was our messaging that was off key.”

But in chimes Mr Whatever it Takes Richardson:

I have a problem with that analysis because in my view taking two new taxes to that election was political suicide. No soothing words could have smothered the vision people have of a government bringing down more taxes upon what they see as their already overburdened shoulders.

Hmm.  Interesting.

    Carr, “It is clearly a problem about the messaging, about the way in which we talk to people,

    Yes, clearly they chose to appeal to the minority Greens and upper class social latte sippers, and not the average Australian.

    Also, clearly, the message DID get across, and the Australians did not like the message!

    How interesting, still shooting the messenger(s). Stupid is as stupid does.

  3. Truth n Justice

    Take that thought to the next election fat arse and watch labor romp in just like they did this time. Hee hee hee!

    Note that Richo doesn’t say that imposing two new taxes is a problem, just that telling the voters about it is a problem.

    Labor and high taxes go together like a printing plant, an insurance policy and a box of matches.

    Pity the Photios Party isn’t much better.

    Clearly the Labor Party has failed to develop a clear and overarching narrative.

    It was pretty clear to me, especially the bit about emasculating Australia by 2050. I think it was quite clear in Qld too. And in my seat of Hunter where Joel has had something of a road to Damascus conversion to the benefits of coal regarding his re-electability.

    His brain is as fat as his torso. Thick as two planks buried in concrete.

    It was the message and the messenger you irredeemable numpty.

    Why not simply say the voters were stupid.

    At one time Labor could just attack the Liberals and keep quiet about what they were really going to do after the election. They had the almost full support of the media and ABC who never questioned anything and helped them in attacking the Liberals. Now, some in the media, especially on Sky are prepared to push back. We also have the worst enemy of the left, the Internet were different opinions can be found. Carr still can’t fathom why they are still not in total control, poor man.

    Kim is a true believer in socialism, at least he was when I knew him. His study was lined top to bottom with books on marxism etc. He had read nearly all of them. Funny how his kids went to a private school.

    Why not simply say the voters were stupid?

    That’s exactly what he’s saying.

    Shhhh. The delicious evidence is the Liars will take their big taxing, big government message to the next election. Blind Freddie could win in 2022 for the Libs, although the evidence mounts that ScoMo hates the electorate as much as Albo and won’t be happy until the Australian economy is in a roaring recession, in which case unreconstructed socialist Albo will win in a canter.

    A rolled gold leaf turd is still a turd. The flies are still buzzing around the ALP policies..

    Socialism is only for other people.

    He is right the alp is crap . Marxism works , look at the umber of countries who have tried it ,every one a salutory lesson in stupidity ,the world is full of idiots who will never learn,even from repeated mistakes .

    Yesterday’s man.

    Some senators don’t have to try as hard to get elected.

    “Clearly the Labor Party has failed to develop a clear and overarching narrative.”

    Actually they did have a narrative – it was the standard Green/progressive/globalist stuff, which sounds wonderful to Labor politicians who have become comfortably detached from the battler backgrounds which they love to talk about.

  18. Old Lefty

    The Commisar with a clipboard, also known as Kim Il Carr.

  19. old bloke

    How has Kim Il Carr retained any relevance?

    He was (is?) connected to the Vehicle Builder’s Union, and we* have long stopped building vehicles in Australia. How has he retained any presence with the labour movement?

    we = Big Union, big Government, and big Corporatism.

    I wouldn’t be crowing so much about the last election result. The Libs only just scraped in despite the ALP having a dreadful platform, an untrustworthy leader and that moron Bob Brown poisoning the ALP/Greens vote in Qld with his ridiculous convoy.

    Despite troglodytes like Carr even a nest of vipers like the liars can learn a little from that defeat and won’t be telegraphing their uber-socialist policies so loudly before the next election. Don’t forget the loathsome Garrett boasting that they could change everything once they get in. We don’t call them the liars party for nothing.

    The libs are still weak and infested with LINOs. Morrison’s capitulation on renewable energy (and praise for it from the worst ever faux-liberal ex-PM ) is an apt demonstration of that. All it would take for an election to give us a ALP/Greens coalition is for the liars to find a leader with a bit more appeal than Albanese, and a gag imposed on idiots like Bowen, Chalmers and the rest of their confederacy of dunces. KK or Plibersek could lead them to an election win despite being mental defectives in every other respect. You can just imagine the media orgasm and hagiograpies in the Women’s Wekly and New Idea etc.

    Be afraid, be very afraid!

  21. Bob in Castlemaine

    Presumably Kim hankers for a leader like one time hero Hugo Chavez.

    Internally contradictory statements.
