Over the course of my life I spent many an hour at Liberal Party functions greasing the palms of the people who shared my love of the finer things in life so I know a great deal about the political process. One of the things that has always irritated me abouit lefty bloggers is that they refuse to participate in politics.

An example is Marieke Hardy, the script writer from Last Man Standing. Shes always ready to dismiss John Howard and presents herself as a very cool inner suburban woman who is in touch with her sexuality. In her latest smutty post she claims Angry Anderson wants a pair of her soiled underpants. It is true that I handed many a pair of soiled underpants to certain North Shore Liberal MPs in return for favours but that is another story.

Like many lefty bloggers she would never work on an election campaign. Shell bleat about the system and the Liberals but would never think of supporting her side by making letter drops or stuffing envelopes or supporting a fundraiser. I loved Liberal Party fundraisers. With a couple of Shirley Temples under his belt and a few $100 dollar notes stuffed in his trousers, Tony Abbott always showed us his wild side.But like her communist grandfather author Frank Hardy she knows and loves a dollar when she sees it. She is one of the people behind the Polichicks range of leftwing womens underwear that will bring John Howard and the system down any day now.
