In the midst of trying to breach the wall of denial from the very un-Canadian Stevie CONtemptuals in the House today, Bob Rae stood up to apologize for the fact that a member of the Liberal research team had admitted responsibility for the vikileaks30 affair. Obviously Bob Rae is too Canadian to deal with the KKKarl Rovian inspired CONtempt Party led by Spiteful Steve and his band of evil mental midgets. The only conceivable wrong doing that could be attributed to Adam Carroll (named as the research assistant by laughable CONblogger BCBlue) might be the use of government resources (i.e. computer network) to post the vikileaks to Twitter. However, if everyone who ever used their employers' network for non-employment related purposes was fired, unemployment would rocket to nearly 100%, except for employees with no computer access. Then when one considers the waste of time the antics, (the stomping, pounding of desks and insults, not to mention the refusal to answer honest questions) of the MPs themselves perform in the people's House, Mr. Carroll was an angel.
The fact is that Mr. Toews insulted every Canadian who has concerns about privacy issues by tacitly accusing them of being "with the child pornagraphers," and for someone to illustrate the point by publishing PUBLIC information about Mr. Toews hypocrisy was in my estimation completely appropriate. Bulldog Baird also apologized for accusing the NDP with absolutely no evidence, a claim which would have left him vulnerable to a libel suit if he dared utter it outside the play House. Therefore, that apology was entirely necessary, though it is certainly rare for the Reformatories to ever apologize for anything, no matter how CONtemptible. These are, after all the guys who won't even apologize for the lies they spread in Irwin Cotler's riding, claiming instead that free speech = the right to LIE!
According to the Montreal Gazette, Viki Toews hisself accepted the (unnecessary) apology but showed his lack of recalcitrance, or perhaps just his stupidity thusly:
Toews accepted the apology. However, he also noted that some Liberal MPs had been encouraging the public to participate in personal, online attacks on him, and he asked the Speaker to look into that issue separately.
Come on Viki, the Speaker can hardly manage to maintain discipline or accountability in the House. You guys are found to be in contempt of Parliament, but so what? Now you think your pet Speaker should start investigating regular Canadians who offend your overly inflated sense of yourself? Who let you out of Manitoba, actually who let you into Manitoba? Did you really go to law school, and you didn't cheat.....really?
Stevie Spiteful and his Cons should seriously consider immigrating to the USA and joining the Republican Party, stealing elections with dirty tricks is more accepted there.
