Clown act: a necessary part of politics

Canberra, Australia. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has revealed he once tried to become a circus acrobat in his late teens however was rejected by numerous circuses because he performed too many flip flops and was advised at least once he should become a clown.

Mr Rudd was sufficiently chastened by this early experience of failure to apply his energies to becoming a politician where the aforementioned skills of flip flopping and acting the clown were natural attributes for an aspiring egomaniac as Rudd.

With a number of existing parliamentarians having also transitioned from circus acts to the political high wire, Kevin Rudd knew that he couldn't go wrong in the Canberra big top and practised his acrobatic verbosity on a regular basis while holding down a back bench position as chief high flyer to the foreign affairs spokesman. But he proved to be too good for the role and ultimately saw his path widen, resulting in leadership of the Australian Labour Party.

Ever since then Rudd has kept control of the high wire acts on his side of politics.
