Australia's Opposition leader Tony "The Mad Monk" Abbott is questioned by Ch 7 reporter about his "shit happens" comment which he delivered with a casual shoulder shrug when discussing the circumstances surrounding the death of an Australian soldier in Afghanistan. When it finally dawns upon Abbott how insensitive his comments and behavior may seem, he totally clams up and if there was sand around, he'd stick his head in it for sure. You can see how his brain is working overtime trying to find a dignified way out from this awkward situation but the silence is defeaning. Abbott's behavior is truly bizarre, but sadly we have come to expect nothing less from him over the years....
