How do the writers at The Australian maintain any shred of pride in their work in light of the way they (have to?) spin Tony Abbott?
Case in point: Dennis Shanahan rotating faster than a neutron star this morning over Newspoll results which show absolutely no change in a bad TPP vote for the Coalition, but nonetheless (apparently) it represents a magnificent turning point for Abbott because his negative approval rate has dropped to only -17%!
It's absurd, and undignified in the extreme.
More realistic take: "If this is as good as it gets, Tony, you should be worried."
