Dropouts, Dinosaurs And Strip Clubs: A Weird Week Three Of The AusVotes Campaign

We're just halfway through this campaign, and things keep getting stranger.

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven... we're running out of fingers and toes to keep up with all the controversial candidates to be exposed this campaign, from anti-Semitic conspiracy theories to unacceptable "jokes", questionable memes and sexist remarks.

Clive Palmer is still spending money like it's going out of fashion, Bill Shorten is running and talking about Big Mac-onomics, and Scott Morrison can't stay away from the soccer field.

Tony Abbott was targeted with offensive posters around Warringah, MPs offices were targeted in climate change protests, and the first election debate got everyone talking (and some people snoozing).

This five-week campaign started off weird, it's been getting weirder -- how will the next two weeks play out?
