If You've Felt An Emotion, Chances Are There's A Photo Of Michaelia Cash Feeling It Too
The camera just loves some people, doesn't it?
From any image of Tony Abbott in Speedos or Lycra, to the classic shot of John Howard putting just a little too much effort into bowling a cricket ball in Pakistan, Australian politicians have served up some cracking snaps.
But Minister for Jobs Michaelia Cash has arguably taken the cake, giving photographers the chance to capture what is possibly the broadest spectrum of human emotion ever to grace Canberra from the beginning of her career.
So buckle up, we're going down Michaelia Cash Snap Memory Lane.
There was really no other place to start was there? The snap that put her on the map. Who could forget the senator hurtling threats to expose rumors of young women in Bill Shorten's office when asked about a newly hired chief of staff during a heated Senate Estimates hearing in February. No one, because it was terrifying.
This one gives us the "crap, should I have said that" vibe. She really shouldn't have, but we'll let it slide this time on account of the photos the exchange blessed us with.
The look you give when you're issued a subpoena to give evidence in the Australian Workers Union raids case.
Taking a minute to consult with the Man upstairs about what to do.
Finally deciding to pack it all in and announce a new career in the fine art of mime. (Disclaimer: that didn't happen. Cash is just letting us know her lawyers are going to fight the subpoena, not that she's locked in an invisible box.)
We call this one 'The Look You Make When Barnaby Joyce Signs On For A $150,000 Interview'.
As a part of the same series, Cash here features in 'When Barnaby Joyce Blames Vikki Campion For Accepting The Interview'.
"You still haven't gotten back to me about the subpoena, have you dealt with it yet?"
And yes, this face is familiar to you. It's the face your colleagues make when you say you have some juicy gossip.
Just don't start spilling that tea during Estimates hearings. *Looks at the camera like a character in The Office*
