Rash Judgement, Calumny, and Detraction of the Week

This week's award appears to go to Australia. I quote from the "Portrait of the Week" section of The Spectator (not, alas, on line):

In the Australian election campaign, Mr Mark Latham, the leader of the opposition, called the cabinet 'a conga-line of suck holes'.

I have no idea what that means. But it can't be good.
