Puff-brained Press Gallery

And they wonder why PMSH snubs them (Star - Politicians now at their wit's end).

H/T National Newswatch.

One day Iggy will learn that Harper had it right all along. Throw the Press a crumb and they'll poop all over you. Maybe the mascot for the Press should be the pesky seagull.

The Toronto Star has "wits"? Who knew.

Yep, the press tend to poop on alot of things, while the Liberals, true to their puffin roots hide the poop.

Oh lighten up. Just because there's no humour in politics anymore - do you have to make some sort of political issue out of a joke?

The pitiful side of all this is that conservatives don't seem to have a sense of humour and get their panties in a knot over something absoutely unimportant - always the victims.

Hey - Harper loves cats and they poop and hide it - only they hide it in people's gardens.

Get a life and find something important to rant about - or take a break - you are getting quite tiresome, really you are.

Take a prozac - try to be happy and jolly some times - it doesn't hurt.

Do something - please. You are depressing.

I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I don't see much humour in Iggy's comments. For something to be funny, it has to reveal something about the world that we didn't know or think about before. So Iggy's quip about Puffins "hiding their excrement" (similar to what Liberals do) was just stating the obvious.

What I thought was funny was Dion's stump-style speech to his caucus, video here.. Dion was going on with stuff like "For those Canadians who want blah blah blah, the only alternative is ...". And then then MPs would shout back "The LIBERAL PARTY".

That kind of speaker/audience back-and-forth works better with an audience of party workers. Not with MPs. You could tell the MPs felt awkward, and the volume of their chants died off.

So that was funny, how Dion stumbled through a poorly thought out stump speech, embarassing his MPs.

Did you watch the video?
It's clear that it was done in a humorous way.

CTV had a clip of it - and everyone was laughing and joking around - God forbid.

Don't laugh - be angry - CPC new bumper sticker.

"Do something - please. You are depressing."

Then ... why do you stop by here? Are you a masochist?

Personally I find Iggy's comment very funny if only because it is so true. The liberals under PMJC became and still remains the Puffin Poo Party and Iggy nailed it.

To all the anonymouses who seem not to be able to read...

Joanne is pointing out that the media is making this whole mess out of a flipping joke!

Pardon me if I'm overstepping, but Joanne is pointing out that Harper ignores the media because of their tendency to do this, take some light hearted comment out of context and make a scandal of it.

I feel bad for Iggy really, I thought it was a rather decent joke. Especially the 'hide their poop' party. But like you said Joanne, throw them a bone and they'll beat you with it.

S.O. - Thank you. That was exactly my point. They are their own worst enemies. I imagine that Iggy will be somewhat more guarded next time.
