Kevin Rudd: excellence in retort

I don’t think that anyone will ever beat Paul Keating’s collection of retorts, put-downs and insults but I liked Kevin Rudd’s response to allegations that he’s spending too much on travel as Foreign Minister:

“The first thing I think I’d say on behalf of all foreign ministers is that one of the things we tend to do is travel,” Mr Rudd said.

“And that’s because we discovered a long time ago that most foreigners live abroad…”

I also admired how he dealt with that thing about being ejected from a strip club thing years ago (“I don’t remember it, I was too drunk“).
