SA Liberal leader Isobel Redmond is clearly not the sharpest tool in the box.
When her son recently opined over dinner that telling the truth in certain circumstances is not always right, for example when people lied to the murderous Nazis to protect Anne Frank, she found it quite a powerful analogy.
And yet itâ€™s quite a disgusting comparison because she was comparing the righteous gentiles whose lies to the Nazis saved lives with Tony Abbottâ€™s recent clumsy explanation about the difference in magnitude of his scripted remarks and those that are off the cuff.
To be sure the press gallery reaction has been typically over-the-top about Abbott but he wonâ€™t be assisted by nuff nuffs like Isobel Redmond.
It is not appropriate to compare politiciansâ€™ fibs or broken commitments with those who lie to murderers about the location of their intended victim.
