The Keeping-a-Low-Profile Caption Contest

David Cunliffe was keeping a low profile at Ratana yesterday, declaring his absolute support for David Shearer:

You know the rules. Keep 'em short, pithy, amusing and to the point, and don't get unnecessarily personal; we're over the "Silent T" nickname, so we'd be grateful if you'd avoid that too. We can have enough fun at the Honourable gentleman's expense without it.

Keeping a low profile? That sounds like the basis of a Tui billboard, so let's see what you can come up with!

If I may borrow from the gayly married Sir Elton John:

You've a certain sartorial eloquence
And a style that's almost of your own
You've got the knack of being so laid-back
It's like talking to the great Unknown
You've got a self-sufficient swept-back hairdo
Pretty certain that you've got it made
Oh your life-style shows in the clothes you chose
Sitting pretty in the masquerade
Sing it
Don't you wanna play this game no more
Don't you wanna play no more
Don't you wanna play this game no more
Don't you wanna play no more
You remain the only main contender
Though you never, you never meant to lose at all...


Prescient, what?

The words Cunliffe nd Low Profile in the sme sentence - is that a mixed metaphor, an oxymoron or just Cunliffe as a moron?
