The 'I think' buffet
I think the heckling of a Canadian tennis player in Canada by other Canadians (or Canadian residents) based solely upon ethnic background is despicable. If Daniel Nestor was black, or Jewish, or gay, there would be a cross-partisan shitstorm directed at these twits, and rightly so. So why the relative silence on this one?
I think reviewing the nomination process for candidates that have run unsuccessfully twice in the past is a good thing (ht:CG). In my former riding, the CPC candidate has now run twice for that party, and once for the Canadian Alliance prior to that, without success. As I understand it, he was set to run yet again the next time around. He's a party insider, and has a lock on the riding membership - so much so that nobody even bothered to run against him for the nomination last time around. Having a loyal and disciplined following within a riding association is important for a prospective candidate, but it shouldn't be the only factor in deciding who runs.
I think the end times must be near when I find myself agreeing with Ujjal frickin' Dosanjh, of all people, on a defence matter (ht:Torch). There had better be an explanation for this move that isn't spelled P-O-R-K. My time and money will not continue to go to a party that uses defence like this.
I think I can actually hear the galloping hooves of the Four Horsemen when I read a former Liberal Justice Minister eviscerate a former Supreme Court of Canada Justice (ht:SG) for ignorant and unhelpful pronouncements from her pulpit at the United Nations. Good on Irwin for playing against type.
I think I'm done thinking for today.
