“Like Beethoven at the turn of the 19th century, Brendan Nelson has entered his heroic middle period, a time of encroaching deafness and dementia.

As we all look forward to the day when his output dwindles to the political equivalent of a handful of tuneless piano sonatas and some silly quintets, Australian working children can take comfort in the knowledge that they have a man of truly titanic ability on their side.”

Aaron Timms in the Sydney Morning Herald brings an interesting musical angle to political insults.
