Is Peter FitzSimons the most clueless commentator in Australia?

Peter FitzSimons On Why Kevin Rudd Will Prevail
It’s about the Rudd thing. I just don’t get how a bloke who had nigh on record popularity only a short time ago can so suddenly be on the nose with so many voters when, to my eyes, nothing has particularly changed, apart from the mining tax.  And I know, I know, the mining magnates are saying it is the end of the world as we know it if a larger chunk of the common wealth of the country goes to the Commonwealth of Australia to pay for schools, roads and hospitals, instead of into their pockets. But why do such a broad mass of people seem to be saying that, too?  Particularly when they must know that if the money doesn’t come from the likes of the magnates then it will have to come from you, me and them.  My bet is that if the government sticks to its guns, the electorate will realise exactly that, and Rudd’s numbers will rise again.

That was on Sunday. The office removalists arrived at the Prime Minister’s office on Wednesday.
The rest here.

The Bolter is apparently expecting an apology tomorrow on Insiders.
