Rob Anders Breaks His Own Record Of Stupidity: Peter Stoffer Call Him a “Dickhead”

Tweet

Yes, boys ‘n’ girls, as Dr. Dawg always says, Conservatism of today is not a politics; it’s a diagnosis.  And Mr. Robbie Anders has a very bad case of it.   Goes right up there with calling Nelson Mandela a “terrorist.”  Our little Narcoleptic Neanderthal woke up temporarily to accuse Thomas Mulcair of “precipitating” . . . → Read More: Rob Anders Breaks His Own Record Of Stupidity: Peter Stoffer Call Him a “Dickhead”

The Anti-Choicer Loses Liberal Nomination For Toronto-Danforth And The Riding is the NDP’s To Lose

Tweet

Well, I’m sure many Liberals can rest easy, for now–the fetus fetishist, Trifon Haitas, lost the nomination to advertising exec, Grant Gordon last night.  There was concern that the Liberals being in such bad shape, that it was ripe for a take-over from single issue interest groups, like a fetus fetishing group looking . . . → Read More: The Anti-Choicer Loses Liberal Nomination For Toronto-Danforth And The Riding is the NDP’s To Lose

The Year That Was: Canadians Politics in 2011

Tweet

What a year 2011 was. Who would have thought in January that the Conservatives would, by May, have a majority government? That the Bloc, so long a dominant force in Quebec, would be reduced to numbers not seen since the early 1990’s? That the Liberals would be reduced to third party status? That . . . → Read More: The Year That Was: Canadians Politics in 2011

Trying To Understand Politics In Quebec These Days–Part 1–Is Sovereignty Really Dead? The Potential Resurrection of Gilles Duceppe

Tweet

I had heard nothing from the federalist media, particularly from those from the right who say nothing but sovereignty is dead in la belle province. The evidence they have? Well, some polls, which I do take with a grain of salt–the usual suspects–Leger Marketing.  Sadly, that is all most Quebecers have to work . . . → Read More: Trying To Understand Politics In Quebec These Days–Part 1–Is Sovereignty Really Dead?

And Now, Let the Leadership Race Games Begin…But Before That, Let’s View The Quebec Challenge

Tweet

Speculation regarding Jack Layton’s successor had already begun within days following his death.  Personally, I thought it was in poor taste. Kind of predatorial, really.  I mean, couldn’t we bury Jack first before getting to this new business?  Anyway, it’s all now in full swing as of today and as Jean Lapierre mentioned . . . → Read More: And Now, Let the Leadership Race Games Begin…But Before That, Let’s View The Quebec Challenge

Jack Layton’s Funeral, Learning About Jack, The Family Man. A Few Words To Critics,

Tweet

Jack Layton’s state funeral service couldn’t have been more fitting.  Different kinds of music being played, from classical to Quebecois from Martin Deschamps to pop to a gospel rendition of a 60’s Youngbloods’ classic by Julie Michel. The musical selections also represented something Jack Layton strived toward, besides social democracy;  diversity.  In fact, not . . . → Read More: Jack Layton’s Funeral, Learning About Jack, The Family Man.

Chrissie Blatchford: Too Wrapped Up In Her Own Prejudices & Partisanship To Actually Work at Seeking the Truth & Real Story

Tweet

Indeed she is, so are others in her field today, sadly. But before I go into that. I will do a little review of the past few days of others of her friends like CJAD’s Trude the Prude and of course, Johnny Kay’s Mommy, Babs Kay.

The Onion comes to Canada. Sun’s Mark Bonokoski on Jack Layton.

Tweet

I’m stealing this directly from Dan Gardner. It’s too perfect to leave on the Twitter floor.

This video defines ‘blowhard’ – Mark Bonokoski in a jealous rage over the attention given to Jack Layton on his passing. These guys just can’t stand a lefty taking up media space they feel they alone deserve to occupy. It’s driving. them. insane.

Jonathan Kay defends Christie Blatchford’s indefensible column on Jack Layton

Tweet

Yesterday, Christie Blatchford wrote a column for the National Post full of back handed compliments to Jack Layton on the day of his death. Between the lines, however, lay a great streak of right-winged opportunism, attacking the man and his party for their beliefs and actions. Using terms like ‘vainglorious’ and ‘sophistry’, Blatchford . . . → Read More: Jonathan Kay defends Christie Blatchford’s indefensible column on Jack Layton

The right reacts to death of Jack Layton

Tweet

Stephen Taylor must be so proud.

“By the end of today’s news cycle… …there will be no part of his anatomy left unkissed… “

Small Dead Animals begins its discussion of Layton’s passing begging for civility from commenters. Commendable but the fact that it is even necessary is a sad commentary of its own.

RIP Jack Layton, 1950-2011

Tweet

I just learned that Jack Layton passed away from cancer much too young early this morning, surrounded by his family.  He  certainly made history for the federal NDP and contributed a lot and still had much to contribute.  He will be remembered as a leader who rose to many challenges with courage, like . . . → Read More: RIP Jack Layton, 1950-2011

I’m still on the road, in Ford Nation. I thank my co-bloggers for keeping Sister Sage’s Musings current while I’m away.

Being Oppositional, ‘Socialist’ Filibuster Drinking Games, Pandering to the Misinformed, Attempting To Debunk Some Myths

Finally, I post my thoughts about the NDP filibuster of Stevie Spiteful’s draconian Back to work legislation of  locked out Canada Post workers and the press coverage it has received, along with many Canadians’ attitude toward it.  I’m not only concerned at Canadians’  attitudes toward Bill c-6, but also all the misinformation that . . . → Read More: Being Oppositional, ‘Socialist’ Filibuster Drinking Games, Pandering to the Misinformed, Attempting To Debunk Some Myths

According to Kady O’Malley’s last tweets, it appears that Stevie Spiteful will be visiting the sites of the Richelieu Floods sites for a briefing tomorrow, suggesting that perhaps Jack may have to wait for the opportunity to ask Stevie his first question as leader of the opposition.  So,  if  Stevie really is heading . . . → Read More: Attack of Conscience or Running Away From Question Period?

Jack Layton, Just Like the Rest of ‘em

Jack Layton just finished telling Craig Oliver that he thought what young Brigitte DePape did was wrong. He basically said that while he and the rest of ‘em are striving for that all polite decorum, she was disrespectful. Like Carolynn Bennett and Dizzy Miss Lizzy, ol’ Jack basically said that while he is . . . → Read More: Jack Layton, Just Like the Rest of ‘em
