The I Didn't Do It Boy

News Ltd has quickly deflected its online coverage of Kevin Rudd's drunken New York strip club sojourn into commentary on the commentary.

Meanwhile, Rudd - who admitted:

...he could not recall what happened at the night spot because he had 'had too much to drink'
- has nonetheless:

...questioned a claim that he had been warned by (the strip club) management about his behaviour...
...even though:

...he could not recall what happened at the night spot because he had 'had too much to drink'
...and suggested:

...(Alexander) Downer's office could be the source of the story.
Or it could be, Kevvie, you went the grope and were asked to leave and you were too blind drunk on $12 beers and $15 shorts to remember.

It should be interesting to see the mental gymnastics all the leftie feminists have to indulge in to explain why Rudd is still an acceptable Labor candidate for PM. It should be as amusing as the knots US feminists tied themselves in over Bill Clinton's 'seduction' of a work experience intern.

Update: The comedy of hypocritical feminist reaction begins:

Women's groups unwilling to criticise... "If we hanged every bloke who was stupid, there wouldn't be many left," National Foundation for Australian Women spokeswoman Marie Coleman said... Women's Electoral Lobby spokeswoman and prominent feminist Eva Cox said Mr Rudd had a generally good attitude towards women. "It's not something that represents his usual behaviour," she said.
Both of these hard left feminazis would skewer anyone on the right side of politics for just thinking of going to a strip club.


One male frontbencher, who did not wish to be named, said the story could work in Mr Rudd's favour. "It might humanise him a bit. People see him as too much the bookworm and diplomat," he said.
Which comment would also normally raise calls for a burning at the stake.
