Curiouser and curiouser

Dona Cadman suddenly recalls an important event.

CBC spin = This doesn't mean it didn't happen - just that the PM didn't know about it.

Don Martin and another reporter are on CBC just now and are being very careful to use the word "alleged".

More - Cadman's wife speaks in support of Harper (CTV)

Stephen Taylor - Harper removed from Cadman related allegation.

Freedom in my Nationality - Maybe Dion jumped the gun eh.

Post - Dissecting the Harper notice of libel. (Note how they delete the offensive title)

Warren Kinsella weighs in - Cadscam gets complicated. Surprisingly supportive of the PM, for the most part. Now this guy knows from libel.

3:05 Update from Robert Fife at CTV - He said that Ken Dryden was overheard to have yelled at the PM in QP, "If this is true, you're dead! You're dead!"

Nice. Reminds me of this.

Good discussion going on at David Akin's blog.

Tuesday Update: Dona Cadman's website.

Province - Hard to make sense of this convoluted story.

Don Martin better be careful, he is always on Newman's show. Hope Susan Delacourt is made to retract some things too. I can hardly watch Newman any more.

You beat me to it, just heard the exchange with Don Martin. Sure is a lot of laughing by the talking heads.
Didn't take the cbc long to get the spin going. They are in fact now insinuating that Dona Cadman is a liar, after defending her as an honest truthful lady.
Can't wait for all the retractions of posters who said Harper is lying.

This story just keeps getting better and better. Stephane Dion and the Liberals can't fight their way out of a wet paper bag.

Why is Flanagan, who was present when the million bucks was offered, not saying anything.

This is about the Conservative Party not Harper. It seems to me Harper used to tar Paul Martin about not knowing what going on.

Harper is a dishonest and a hippocrit.

hah! Totally OT, but I thought you might have somehow received this package, that many have been receiving (including CNet and Current TV :)
But alas, it is not... and really nothing to do with your blog at all, so feel free to delete this comment ;) heh

Sorry to disappoint, but I'll leave the comment. Someone might be interested. :)

Craig Oliver said that He believed the Cadman Family on MDL last Friday and then on Question Period on Sunday. Will he again tell us today that he believes Dona Cadman!!

I'm appalled. There's just no other way to describe it. I've been complaining for two years about the escalation of the heckling going on in the House. Last Tuesday, I tried to watch JF's budget address and had to turn it off because I couldn't hear him over the incessant babble, hooting and hollering going on.

I'm sick of the personal insults, false accusations and mostly the lack of appropriate decorum in our parliament. I've seen kindergarten classes that were better behaved than these people.

It's time the Speaker clamped down on the children and their bickering. It's time these overpaid buffoons started paying attention to the running of the nation. The Liberals, in particular, need to get off their hands, and start doing their job. They are supposed to be representing their constituents!

At this point, as unrealistic as it seems, we need to do away with the party system. No one is working for the people... heck, it seems none of them are working PERIOD. I’m sick to death of the whole lot of ‘em

Liberals aren't backing down.

Meet ya at high noon, pardner.

So does this mean that since Dion has never denied he was a pedophile , this opens the door to "Alleging" it must be somehow linked to kiddie porn or NAMBLA ?

I think I'll wait for the Michael Moore movie version of the Cadman insurance fraud where he ties in Bush / Harper/ Saudis/ Enron/ Carlyle/ and the CIA .

Dryden should have stuck to hockey.

What a pathetic show QP was today.

Good for Kinsella! Too bad none of the Dion lemmings are listening.

annie I couldn't agree with you more it possible for a concerned person to watch this fiasco and come away not depressed about the people that are trying to run this country ...I would think that any bunch and I mean any bunch of people could do what they seem to be doing ...its sad ..katou

Yeah, it's all about the power.

In other nations it's called Kindergarten.

Thanks for all your hard work keeping us up to date, Joanne. It sure was hard to do anything away from the computer today. Guess laundry always waits till another day.

Guess laundry always waits till another day.

lol! Ruth, I hear ya!

Paul MacPhail said...

Yeah, I'm with ya on the laundry part. Spent the last 8 hours trying to fix a darn dryer. New element, thermostats checked ok, fuses all good, and still no heat. I give up!

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Paul, did you try plugging it in? ;)

maryT said...

I was going to ask the same thing about plugging it in but just think Paul, you are helping global warming by not using heat.
OT but, liberals were beaten today by AB voters. Lost 8 seats.
Wonder if voters in Calgary were paying Dion back for smearing their local hero, PMSH and a dead man. Ed gained 13 seats when polls and talking heads said he could lose up to 15. NDP lost party status by electing 2 and losing 2.
Tories wanted our riding back and spent big bucks here, but only won by 39 votes.
