What an embarrassment

Babble on.

Listening to Paul Martin being interviewed on As It Happens during my commute home tonight was painful. To his credit, the CBC Radio interviewer asked some tough questions. I liked one in particular that dealt with Martin's ridiculous Notwithstanding Clause promise, and how it seems like evidence that he will say or do anything to stay in power.

Martin's response to this was astoundingly dishonest. He said he'd believed in this convoluted position for a long time, and that he was offended that people would imply that this was sheer grandstanding on his part. Offended.

Hey Paul - and let me be perfectly clear here - if it wasn't grandstanding, if it was fundamentally something you believe very, very strongly about, then why isn't it mentioned in the latest Book of Empty Promises Red Book?

Canada is a proud nation, and with good reason. We have our issues, but at our core, we're a strong and competent country. To have such a spineless and pathetic man as our Prime Minister is a national embarrassment.

It's long past time to flush Paul Martin and the rest of his stinking Liberal offal back down into the sewer that spawned them. But watching him scratch and claw at the porcelain as he swirls around the bowl for the next week is going to be ugly.

Offended. What an asswipe.

Babble off.

Unca Paulie was so perfectly clear that even his Justice Minister, Landslide Annie, didn't realise that it was one of his ah, core principles. Until election time. During the second leaders' debate.

But then I suppose that kind of thing is hard to work into a musty old anecdote about his sainted father.
