Yeah no, look, you’ve got to take these things one day at a time, but Channel Nine’s epic, iconic Clichélympics journey is right on track for gold.
Never mind the disappointing London results of Australian athletes. There are only 22 million of us Aussies and we usually punch above our weight in the world, but it’s swings and roundabouts, the results are on the scoreboard, and we’ll just have to take our lack of gold in our stride.
At any rate, Channel Nine has taken up the slack and stepped up to the plate. The Olympic broadcaster is making a concerted bid for a new Clichélympics PB. And isn’t that all you can ask of anyone at the Games – that they do their best?

Let’s be clear about this. Let’s be absolutely, crystal clear. The reality is that politicians use clichés. Don’t let the other side try every trick in the book to cloud the issue.
And can I say this: as with many decent, hard-working Australians, I find it understandable when politicians fall into using the same-old, same-old patterns of words, time and time again. Only politicians use short sentences. And they pause for effect. And they use rhetorical devices.
With all due respect, some politicians will categorically deny these allegations. Some will say this is a fishing expedition. Some will question the timing of these accusations. And of course, some will decline to comment, saying that it’s a private matter.

Turns out Yasi’s bark was worse than its bite.
