Pam Corkery?

I've just watched the professional 'feisty leftwing red head' swearing and cursing on t'news.  My immediate reaction was, "Is the New Zealand talent pool really so small and shallow that she has to be the face of Internet-Mana's media operation?"

Lord, I'd forgotten she existed.  And didn't think my life was lacking as a result.

A quick check on Wikipedia reveals that after her less than stellar career as a politician, she's made a less than stellar career on talk back and a less than stellar career as a brothel owner.  I kid you not.

I think I remember Pam, years ago on some TV program, gloating about how she got out of the Alliance before it fell apart, referring to it as a 'sinking ship.'

Obviously Laila Harre must have missed that show.

In her book of political memoirs (really - after a term?!) Corkery describes policians as "by and large, far more self-deluding, devious, bloated, insecure, egocentric wankers" - which may well be true but begs the question why she has decided to work in that field again.

Still, being innured to these traits may be a job requirement for working with Kim Dotcom ...

And contemplation of those uncomplimentary terms might prompt one to speculate what words would describe a foul mouthed, publicity seeking, failed brothel owning, talk show hosting, TV studio cluttering, recidivist political wannabe.
