Raw Nerve Touched...

The Premiere of Andrew Bolt's new Sunday program - The Bolt Report has certain groups seething.

Highlights from Twitter:

Nadia Rao:
Bolt is a dolt. It's true because it rhymes..
Did not watch the #boltreport. Will continue not to watch it. Because nauseating bigotry mix well with my Sunday morning muesli.
Julia Watkins:
163 000 people watched the Bolt Report and 123 000 watched the encore screening. Why Australia. Please tell me why.
Antony Loewenstein: "
#Murdoch must be so proud #boltreport"
Sour grapes, anyone? What do you think Antony would do, for his own show? He links to a negative review in (surprise surprise) the Fairfax press.

(Update: Yes, Murdoch would be proud at the ratings, which matter more than the opinion of a Fairfax competitor. Suck it, Antony.)

Ad Roq:
Andrew Bolt has a great sounding voice for newspapers #BoltReport
Keith Walker:
Bolt Report - a load of self-serving crap!!! Andrew Bolt - a dud!!!
Tony Lee:
Andrew reads the autocue in a sing song voice, but I can't see past the slime he's spewing at my screen.
Flemish Dog:
"bolt will be the first against the wall when the revolution comes "
There was another comment by Declan Fey:
"Can't believe they went with #boltreport name for the show instead of The Amazing Racist."
which was retweeted many dozens of times over the course of an entire day.

In any case, the title of The Amazing Racist has already been taken by an American comic with a lot more balls than The Chaser.

Presumably nobody could come up with anything more witty.

It took nearly an entire day for this one to appear:
I assume that someone has already thought to refer to the #boltreport as "The Vagina Monologue?"
Other hilarious plays on the title followed a similar theme: "Are we strapped in folks? The Cunt Report starts on Sunday"

Someone has even set up a Twitter account for no other reason than to make similar hilarious 'jokes'.

Over at Pure Poison, they insisted they weren't going to watch it. Yeah right.

Following the previously created gynaecological theme, comes this summary of the Left's Telepathic Tivo:
@gibbomeister: The #boltreport seems to have thrown sand into a few left-wing vaginas. They all say they didn't watch but still know it was crap. #auspol
Update 2: Via comments, a mini-review in comments at the Age's article:
"I have a close relative who is a journalist and he speaks of ballance [sic] and ethics in reporting, Bolt couldn't spell the words let alone get them into a sentence, the man is a clown.
No. Bolt couldn't spell ballance.

I thought this comment on The Age website took the biscuit:

"I have a close relative who is a journalist and he speaks of ballance and ethics in reporting, Bolt couldn't spell the words let alone get them into a sentence, the man is a clown.

Excellent. Post updated.

Next time, don't click "anonymous" but rather "Name/URL" and enter something. Anything.

18 followers of "Bolt is a C***" on twitter, and one is Julia Gillard, and another is Laurie Oakes? Bob Brown is another one. I expect nothing less from Jonathan Green. And these are supposed to be fine, upstanding citizens of Australia? Pathetic!!!

Griffin, those 18 are the accounts "BoltIsAC***" is following, not which accounts are following him.

Of the names you list above, Julia Gillard (the real, verified PM account) is the only one who decided that account was worth following. Which if nothing else tells us something about the type of person who's managing her "social media presence".

Thanks Minicapt. I think it's a habit from banging out angry letters about the head of NSW for the last 16 years.

Griffin, excellent point. Will post something shortly.

Thanks Spot, I'm still trying to work Twitter out. It's not something I spend much time looking at. I've sent Julia Gillard an e-mail letting her know I'm pretty disgusted that she has allowed herself to be connected with this twitter page, especially as she is supposedly the Leader of this country.

That's exactly what I thought when read tweets quoted above.
