Have You Now Or Ever

Been a member of the NDP? It must be close to Halloween. The witch hunt is on. Does it really matter that a protester is also a member of a political party if there is no proof that the party organized the protest? No, but it does make for some salacious "news". Speculation is not proof, it's masturbation. The media is in danger of turning itself into the personification of Lionel Hutz: "Well your honor, I have plenty of hearsay, conjecture and innuendo. Those are TYPES of evidence."

Update: Of course the MSM is limp next to the self-love champs, Liberal bloggers.

Update: Perhaps Liberal bloggers should take a cue from Liberal MP, Paul Szabo, who said this in response to the government's question of privilege :
Mr. Paul Szabo (Mississauga South, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, the references that the hon. House leader has made I am familiar with them but I simply want to point out to the House leader and to you, Mr. Speaker, that this is the party that brought forward a 200 page manual on how to obstruct the work of committees.

A former Deputy Speaker, Bill Blaikie, once said to the House that demonstration and filibustering are part of the democratic process. Section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms gives Canadians the right to express their freedom of expression. That is what happened here.

Mr. Speaker, I would just indicate that freedom of speech is not just for parliamentarians. It is for all Canadians.
I realize Liberal bloggers like to tease the NDP (the psychology of that relationship could fill many textbooks), but they are in danger of looking like the Jay Hill's tool.

  1. The Liberals are trying to avoid the real story -- their reversal on the issue of climate change. I'm not sure it's working; but, then again, I'm not sure most people realize what the problem of climate change is really all about. (Example: Jon Stewart the other night had what's-his-name, the Freakonomics guy, on to defend his latest book which discusses climate change by postulating pie-in-the-sky technological solutions. And Jon was defending this.)

    Bsaically, it's typical Liberal nonsense: pursuit of power above any other goal, no real policy insight or ability, and so on and so forth. I'm starting to get the impression that I'm just not old enough to remember when this party was worth taking seriously.

  2. Unless you are old enough to remember Herman's Hermits, you are too young.
