Keating, neither matinee idol nor rock god. A post for SBS Comment and Analysis.
After reading that article my inner psychologist tells me you most definitely have a thing for him 🙂
I’m a big fan of his – but in full knowledge of his flaws 🙂
The ABC show is compelling and I feel very honest. In contrast to leaders befor and after him he sets a very high bar of achievement. I chuckle when the Liberals roll out Costello and herald him as a hero of great economic will, when in terms of legacy analysis was nothing more than the book keeper at a fire sale. PJ Keating is a humble man, but he is humbled by the likes of Debussy beyond the mark of his peers. All great souls are flawed for that is the safety valve for the might of the great power they aspire to contain.
