From candy in the comments in a recent Open Thread at Catallaxy Files, in the face of an onslaught of support from the wingnut denizens for Scott Morrison to dethrone Tony Abbott:
So, we’ll have an overnight coup, because the polls have gone down a bit, where Tony Abbott is stabbed in the back and Mr Morrison put in as PM, but the electorate doesn’t like this kind of shenanigans with the PM they voted for, and the LNP suffers. Eventually they are voted out because of instability and poor management, even though Tony Abbott makes a comeback, but it’s all too late. And the ALP brings back some socialism for another 6 years.An excellent point candy makes there. In this scenario being cooked up by the crazies on the lunar right, Morrison is to Abbott as Gillard was to Rudd. There is no difference, it's exactly the same thing they cried blue murder about from opposition not too long ago. Abbott's government has lost its way, and the Cat is full of faceless men wielding long knives, suffering from Abbott Disappointment Syndrome.
Is that what you mean?
The current surge of desire among the conservative base for Morrison, like the cat in South Park who gets aroused watching lions mate, is nothing more than submissives getting excited by someone acting dominant, as in yesterday's televised exchanges in Senate committee between Morrison and Sarah Hanson-Young et al. Of course, the Cat inmates are attacking SHY in the most sexist language they can think of, because they'd rather it was them that Morrison was acting all alpha and handsome at.
BTW, candy is one of the more interesting characters at Catallaxy Files. It's an open question as to whether she's real or a sock puppet, as she comes across as a caricature of a doctor's wife. Her careful prose combines bland motherhood statements with incisive commentary, and she's treated by others as if she's genuine. Can such a person exist in reality, or is the account a fake to try to broaden the turf of the Cat with a bit of plastic? The mystery continues.
UPDATE: in further Cat own-petard-hoisting news, usual suspect Tom is now predicting Bill Glasson to win Griffith, dismissing the prohibitively long odds the bookies are giving him based on nothing more than poll truther feelpinions. This, after the Cat spent months supporting the bookies on their Abbott odds until the cows came home.
