It is a great phrase, isn't it?
What does "conga line of suck holes" mean? It does not sound complimentary.
Oh, and have you see this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs3SfNANtig
My kids and I just about died laughing. Do you know the program it's taken from?
The program is "The Chaser", a political comedy series on the ABC (our national broadcaster). They are famous for such stunts like this one! My personal favourite was dressing up twelve people as Osama Bin Laden, putting a plastic Canadian flag on their car and making it through all the security checkpoints for the APEC conference in Sydney, driving right up to the hotel where George Bush was staying. The next day, they went back, still dressed as Osama Bin Laden, in a car made out of a cardboard box, and *still* made it through the first layer of security!
"Conga line of suck holes" refers to the Liberal Party (=Republicans) and their associates lining up to kiss George Bush's ass at every available opportunity. It was said by Mark Latham in his brief but colourful term as Leader of the Opposition.
