Latika Bourke is a brilliant journalist, and in my opinion she’s one of Australia’s top political reporters up there with Annabell Crabb and Laurie Oakes. Today she was reporting from the No Carbon Tax rally in Canberra, and using Twitter to share comments and photos.
What she reported is a worrying reflection of the growing lunatic fringe of Australia.
Reminds me of Right America Feeling Wronged, a documentary by Nancy Pelosi’s daughter Alexander Pelosi. During the 2008 Presidential Election, Pelosi follows the McCain campaign and interviews the people that show up to Support the McCain/Palin ticket. Very sad.
