Standard Shtick

Quick, can you recognize the style below?:

"Normally the Poms rely on pitches that have not had a drink for longer than Bob Hawke or else have been affected by the sort of disease normally found only among Ukrainian politicians."

And, no, the use of "Poms" does not mean he is an Aussie - (neither does the reference to Hawke and neither does the fact that he is an Aussie citizen). I'm not sure what to term the style above - its not simile or metaphor laden.

If you did identify the writer, you've been reading this man's articles for a while.
