What ever did happen to the Australian sense of humour?
Liberal Senator and Federal Minister for Finance, Mathias Cormann is quite willing to take the piss out of himself by quoting a famous Californian Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger line that he used when attacking his opposite number on their fiscal credibility, knowing that cartoonists and comedians and media commentators everywhere in Australia are constantly comparing him with the Austrian actor come Politician because of the similarities in their strong accents.
I have never heard or read that Cormann felt in anyway racially vilified for it and that's because he's more Australian than his Australian born knockers who have forgotten that being Australian is to have a robust (that word again) sense of humour and always being able to laugh at yourself.
Well let's see if Federal ALP Leader Bill Shorten has such a sense of humour also, how Australian is he, hmmmm?
