I’m in bizarro land

OK. So I’m sitting at home on a sunday night, medicating my long dark teatime of the soul with a glass of wine, watching TV and reading my rss feeds, when low and behold I feel like I’ve materialised in bizarro land.

First up, I’m watching Cool Aid on channel 10. It’s looking at Australians’ contribution to climate change and showing how ‘we can all do something’. There’s even green ads for green cars and green electricity. Fucksake, they’re interviewing Al Gore. Ooh — here’s a nice Gore soundbite, referring to solutions to climate change — we don’t need a silver bullet, we need silver buckshot.

Next, I’m reading the my Herald Sun feeds and I come across the number one story in National News and it’s Emissions a new Clean Up target and in the Breaking News Skinny models ban for Fashion Week.

Am I in Howard’s Australia? It’s freaking me out, but I’m just gonna close my eyes and believe. Mainstream Australia is coming on board and we’re going to change the world for the better. How ’bout that.

(I’m an optimist at heart)
