OK, on behalf of many Canadians, I wish to apologize for the Prime Minister’s Press Secretary calling Geo. W Bush a “moron”
She was talking about her own boss, Jean Chretien (pronounced Zhan Kret-yen for American audiences), who is so well regarded on the International Stage, that when he speaks, the press goes for coffee, answers voice mail, or clips their toenails.
Not to say that our Prime Minister is a moron, as that would be unfair to the truly stupid. Our PM is a useless old political hack with a 40 year record of pork barrelling, contract pushing, featherbedding, jiggery-pokery and old fashioned graft that is jaw-droppingly stunning even to those who survived the Ceausescu regime in Olde Romania.
Chretien is not a moron. Geo W. is not a moron either. Neither can apply for Mensa membership, but they sure do have a certain low cunning that allowed the two of them to get to the highest office each country has to offer. There are three morons in this situation:
One, the PM’s Press Secretary who is so stupid as to be not trusted with scissors or to be near the media. Will someone please wire her jaws shut?
Two: The voters of Canada, who continue to elect these muck suckers. We deserve the appellation ‘moron’ because we keep marking the X next to their names.
Three: The voters of the US, both of them who showed up and pulled the lever. Bush is a logo, just like the Nike swoosh, or Ronald Regan. You voted for a logo? Moron.
The answer? Well, to our US members, don’t get bent out of shape by the PM’s Press Wank calling your C in C a moron. Consider the source: A Press Wank with as much impact on World Opinion as Barney Fife has on Quantum Mechanics.
To our Canadian members: Will you please try to remember that the best federal governments we’ve ever had in this country have been our minority governments over the years. Things get done when voters grab their elected representatives by the cullions and threaten to toss them out on the streets.
