I haven’t had nearly enough sleep for the Herald’s bullshit.

Splashed across the front page of the New Zealand Herald’s website right now is the headline Robyn Malcolm’s vitriolic PM attack.
So, as I see it, Robyn Malcolm, who has been prominent in the past year, politically, with the Hobbit debacle, and the anti-mining campaign, was the MC at the Green’s campaign launch. She was political and forthright, and pretty funny.
…We have a leader who seems to be more interested in talking about his cats on the radio, being seen at the rugby and getting on the cover of the Women’s Weekly. I thought that was my job.
An unshakeable and abiding love of fossil fuels … and an inability to follow through on promises of any kind, but will make anything up for a Hollywood mogul should they happen to come down this way.
Gosh! Someone at a campaign launch criticised the man standing to lead this country! Less than three weeks out from the election. Someone had the temerity to joke about him appearing on the cover of trashy magazines.
But of course, she’s also a woman. So any criticism was of course “vitriolic” and “a savaging”.
Hey, Adam Bennett, you missed some words. Uppity. Shrill. Bitch. Shrew. Snippy. Harpy. Strident. Any combination thereof. I have some special words for you, too. Here at TLG, we actually welcome loud, outspoken women. And I just have one question for Robyn Malcolm – when you gonna stand yourself?
