Victorian Premier Dan Andrews continues to receive accolades on his FB page. It is extraordinary. We just can’t reconcile how in the face of such overwhelming evidence of incompetence, that residents can still praise him.
It reminds us of a joke once told by President Reagan:
“An American and a Russian are sitting in a bar, arguing over whose country was better. The American argues,
“See, in America, I am free to do whatever I want. If I wanted to, I could walk right into the White House, slam my fist on the President’s desk, and say ‘Mr. President, I don’t like the way you are running our country.'”
The Russian then said, “I can do the same thing.”
“Really? You can?” asks the American.
“Yes,” continues the Russian, “If I wanted to, I could walk right into the Kremlin, slam my fist on the General Secretary’s office, and say ‘Mr. General Secretary, I don’t like the way President Reagan is running his country.'”
Here are some of the answers to Dan Andrews’ post despite the heavy handed police state tactics:
