I challenge anyone to find an amusing line in today's column in the Post. Even his most fantatical left-wing moonbat supporters may discover that the task is daunting.
But here is something that struck me as just plain tasteless. Read through these paragraphs:
It makes sense that you should be allowed to call up your buddy in Quebec and give him a Cabinet position. This is, of course, an old boys' club, and so this is exactly what the Prime Minister did. Instead of giving the job to an elected Member of Parliament like Diane Ablonczy he called up Michael Fortier, private citizen, and gave him the big gig.
By the way, I'm not suggesting that giving his pal the gig was an easy move for Harper. It can't be easy having to look your MPs in the eye and basically tell them they're imbeciles. Even for Harper that's got to hurt a little bit.
And pity the poor caucus. Imagine getting elected, your party forms the government, and then your leader basically tells you that you have a better chance of ending up with a disability cheque based on your mental incompetence than you ever do of seeing a minister's salary. That's a tough day at the office.
Did he just call Diane Albonczy an imbecile? And what about all the women in the caucus. Is he calling them mentally incompetent?
Mr. Speaker, I would like to rise on a Point of Order!!!
