Definition Of Chutzpah

Lawrence Cannon lecturing anyone on the proper way to conduct a trial, while leaving Omar Khadr to rot. If any Russian officials are reading this, I am sure Mr. Cannon won't mind if you bring Khadr's case up in public.

Poor Norman Spector

He broke the omerta and has now disappeared.

Instant Update: Of course, he shouldn't print gossip, either.

Oh, And Happy Festivus

Yesterday was Festivus. A belated Happy Festivus, for those who celebrated. I myself revel in the "Airing of Grievances".

Christmas Time Is Here Again

Despite all the bullshit in Ottawa, I had a pretty good year. Merry Christmas to all the other political junkies, loons and fellow travelers.

Merry Christmas Ontario

Here is your kick in the balls, courtesy of Prime Minister Oil Sands. Time to form an Ontario First Party, I think. After all, Alberta has its own party, and Quebec has its own party, why not Ontario? Bah humbug.

Lemon Socialism For Your Retirement

Ask yourself two questions, who will profit if the feds privatize more of the retirement system? Who will be on the hook when these turkeys fall from the sky? We all know the answers to these questions. All you have to do is look south. Jesus, it's like the world financial meltdown never happened. Are conservatives that retarded?

I Wonder

Do you suppose the Conservative Party of Canada is lending Rob Ford its direct mail expertise, in this endeavor? The text reads like warmed over Doug Finley.

Path To Prorogation

Let's just say I would not be surprised if the Harperites announced the new "security perimeter" over Christmas and then prorogued (or, more likely, the other way round) until the budget in the spring.

Re: the sellout of Canadian sovereignty. Americans (and by that I mean your friends in the Republican Party) will never "feel safe" until you are the Honorable Senator from Alberta.

Welcome To Toronto

Leave your brain at the door. Here, in his own words, is Don Cherry, Toronto's new goodwill ambassador:
"Actually I'm wearing pink for all the pinkos out there that ride bicycles and everything. I thought I'd get it in. What'd ya expect, Ron MacLean, here? To come here?

You know, I am befuddled, because I thought I was just doing a good thing, coming down with Ron—Rob—and I was gonna do this here, and it was gonna be nice and the whole deal.

I've been bein' ripped to shreds by the left-wing pinko newspapers out there. It's unbelievable. One guy called me a pink...a jerk in a pink suit, so I thought I'd wear that for him too, today.

You know, it's funny. In those articles I was made fun of 'cause I go to church. I'm easy to do it that way. And I was called maudlin for the troops, because I honor the troops. This is the kinda, uh... You're gonna be facin', Rob, with these left-wing pinkos. They scrape the bottom of the barrel, but AGAIN, I was asked, why I was asked, and I asked Doug, "why?" And he said: "We need a famous, good-looking guy." And I said, I'm your man, right? Right off the bat.

You know, I was asked: why, why, why [the] landslide. And I was in their corner right from the start. They phoned me. Doug phoned me, the morning. They'll get a landslide! And why? Because Rob's honest. He's truthful. He's like Julian Fantino. What you see is what you get. He's no phony. And I could go on right now, all the millions and millions and thousands of dollars he's gonna save and everything, but I'd just like to tell a little story that was in the Sun, I think it was in the back pages. It was just a little, little thing. And Fiona Crean, for eighteen months, has been trying to get something done with City Hall. And then the story—I think some of you know the story—that there was a little old lady and all of a sudden she got banged on the door and two guys were there and said: "We're cutting your tree down." You know that's just a little thing, but to me that's a big thing. "We're cutting your tree down!"

And she's, well: "I don't want it. That's my favourite tree. A hundred year-old..."

"No! It's down. Cut it down." And then they give her, send her a bill for five-thousand dollars, for cutting it down. And for eighteen months her son and Fiona were: "City Hall. City Hall. Please help us." Thirty, forty calls. Unbelievable. Nothing. Laughed at. Rob's the mayor one day, apology comes, and a five-thousand-dollar cheque.

And that's why I say he's gonna be the greatest mayor this city has ever, ever seen, as far as I'm concerned! And put that in your pipe, you left-wing kooks.

Thank you very much."
Toronto has never been in such capable hands.

Harper Defiles The Montreal Massacre Anniversary

Prime Minister Asshat today: “That these women were gunned down for no other reason than their gender is as incomprehensible now as it was in 1989. While we cannot, and probably never will, be able to make sense of the events of that day, we can work to ensure that it never happens again,” Harper said. “Let us pay tribute to their memory in the best way that we can: by working to eliminate violence against women while making our communities safer for all Canadians,” Harper said.

Yup, let's work hard to kill the long gun registry gun control. That will make women safer. As the Mexicans say Gracias por nada.

Signs The American MSM Is Crazy

Number 1: Frank Rich suggests that the reason Obama is acting like the a conservative Democrat is due to the Stockholm Syndrome. If this is so, Mr. Obama has been suffering from it for a long time. At least since his days at the Harvard Law Review. Obama is what he has always been. "Progressives" got suckered before his election -- as usual. And it is driving them nuts.

They Call It Democracy

Many of my friends are upset over the near death of C-12 -- and rightly so. It is a disgrace that this country does not have representation by population. It is long since passed the time for reform, but reform will never come as long as the existing parties are beholden to rural Canada for power. But, rural Canada is so over-represented in the present configuration of the Commons, that the parties will always be beholden. It is a classic catch 22 and urban Canada is being screwed by it.

It is time to start a new party, one not based on the farm, but in the city. It is time for an urban party that looks out for urban interests first. It is time to jettison the dead weight of the old, rural dominated parties and declare, ENOUGH!

I Am All For Subways

But I thought the reason why Toronto went the LRT route was because no one wanted to fork over the money for Subways (which are many, many times more expensive). If Rob Ford can squeeze blood from the senior government, he will be celebrated in song (but only if he can convince the province to eat all of the penalty costs for canceling the LRT). Color me doubtful. Dalton has a way of weeping for you, while he is slipping you the shiv. Besides, is it even reasonable for the city of Toronto to tell the province to cough up more money for transit and pay for the penalties, because Rob Ford hates LRT's?

Shorter American Diplomats

Oops, they are on to us. After reading this, all I can think is, these diplomats really don't know us very well at all. If they get the vapors every time someone bitches about the U.S. on the CBC, it's a wonder more of them don't drown themselves in the Ottawa river. Note to U.S. diplomats, we like Americans fine, but your government is hard to take sometimes, and does things we think are stupid (and maybe harmful to our interests). Does this shock you?

How Stupid Is Kelly McParland?

Read this paragraph from his latest offering and decide for yourself:
Boo-hoo. Mr. Vaughan is probably right about downtown Toronto continuing to make its voice heard, but with luck it will mostly be at Starbucks on Yonge Street when councillors with time on their hands get together to complain about how nobody wants to talk about bicycle lanes and windmill-powered public toilets any more.
