I'm Trying to Think of a Fruit That Is Beige On the Outside and Yellow On the Inside

If the increasing references to "watermelons" are anything to go by, the bourgeois gatekeepers of the establishment press seem to have worked themselves up into a state of sweaty panic at the prospect of the Greens doing extra well in the election, but, judging by many of the public responses to this sort of commentary, the idea that the Greens might "secretly" be socialists appears to be something of a selling point. (Note above my attempted punchline to the question "If the Greens are watermelons, what does that make the ALP?")

Incidentally, I've only just realised that the initials of Minimal Effects Hypothesis spells meh. So we've got that going for us.
