If you thought comedy was dead, you’d be wrong.
Teena McQueen, Liberal Party federal vice-president, would give Amy Schumer a run for her money. Actually, she could crawl on all-fours and still be funnier than Schumer, but that’s a whole different post.
Anyway, McQueen was just observing Public Speaking 101 ettiquette yesterday by opening a branch meeting to discuss the conservatives’ new Code of Conduct (ha!) with the quip “I would kill to be sexually harrassed at the moment”.
She’s also a Donald Trump (remember him?) fan because in 2006 she chaperoned Miss Australia’s entrant in the Miss Universe contest and found DJT to be totally “not racist, not sexist, none of those things“. So it must be true then.
She has also found time to trash Jacinda Ardern’s response to the virus, accuse Richard Di Natale of hate speech, describe far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos as an ‘entertainer‘, and imply that Scott Morrison is doing a good job.
And make cock jokes!
Of course, the humourless mandarins at LNP HQ are now publicly disavowing McQueen after failed attempts to gag her. That McQueen is to be a hard-right devotee of former prime minister Tony Abbott, aka “The Mad Monk” should come as no surprise.
McQueen is also on record for her somewhat strained position with The Sisterhood, telling her (many) female critics to either “put up or shut up” and that “Women always want the spoils of victory without the fight.” Which is just ironic and delicious at the same time, isn’t it.
I love this woman.
When she comes out on DVD I am totes buying the boxed-set.
