For Those Both Naughty and Nice
Parliamentarians disappeared from Ottawa last week quicker than a Taliban detainee being turned over to torturing Afghans. The House adjourned for the holidays and not a creature was stirring, not even a Tiny Tory louse.
But that won’t stop us from engaging in our favourite past-time of the season. We have some special cadeaux de noel to pass along to some special people.
For Industry Minister Tony Clement, a personality. ‘Nuff said.
For NDP Leader Jack Layton, a new party slogan. “On Your Side” just doesn’t cut it. Sounds like something they stole from CTV’s former consumer reporter Dale Goldhawk. Can we suggest “Aren’t You Glad We Wimped Out and Didn’t Force An Election?”
Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe, a Senate appointment. Hell, why not. Makes about as much sense as a separatist leader being consistently re-elected to sit in Canada’s Parliament. This cuts out the middleman…the voters…so he can screw Canadians. Oh, wait. He’s already screwing Canadians.
Minister of State for Sport Gary Lunn, platform-soled running shoes. The Minister needs to stand as tall literally as he has metaphorically in promoting the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. We wouldn’t want to sell the Minister’s efforts short.
http://www.liberal.ca, lessons in good taste. The Little Looney Liberals are running a photoshop contest on their website. The target is Stephen Harper. A rather tasteless pic depicting Harper being assassinated by Jack Ruby was submitted and left up on the website until complaints started to roll in. How could they have associated Harper with John Kennedy?
