Why has Australian politics sunk so low that boorish dolts like ScoMo, Abbott and their ilk can become PM?

I remember one time when Australia had intellectuals as PMs.

The Whitlam government of 1972-1975 had one of the most educated and intellectual assembly of politicians in Whitlam's cabinet.

I thought Abbott was the bottom of the barrel until ScoMo emerged. Joyce is even lower.

The Liberal barrel must have a false bottom.
