...could well be the right wing schlock jocks who presumably have much less to get their dander up now that the world has been put to rights by a Coalition government. (Sarcasm, of course.)
Even worse could be the fate of Michael Smith, who entertains himself and a clutch of wingnut types by playing amateur sleuth to what Julia Gillard did in her law office 20 years ago. He'll probably spend the next 6 months trying to get the Abbott government to call a judicial enquiry into it; but if Abbott has any sense (yes, I know, a dubious proposition) he'll avoid the appearance of a vindictive witch hunt that no one sensible has reason to care about and reject the call. Then, if no police charges appear against Gillard (which is what I have always thought the likely outcome, given the shocking reputation of the main witness against her), what is Smith going to blog about?
For that matter, Andrew Bolt is going to have a harder time working himself into a frenzy, isn't he, when his favourite Labor targets are gone from the leadership and government? I think I read somewhere that Insiders thrashed Bolt Report in the ratings in the election run up, but I can't find that story now. Good to see that people know where to go for serious political coverage, anyway.
And the same general thing goes for all the radio right wing talk back. Sure, the repeal or not of the carbon tax will keep them going for a while, but not for 3 years.
