It's Laugh-Out-Loud Hypocritical!

Now, I'm not usually one to attack Stephen Harper, but I just couldn't let this one go. As you may be aware, Scott Brison was forced to apologize for the somewhat... hasty remarks he made about Stephen Harper's extra-curricular activities. (It's only fair, since Mr. Harper was once forced to apologize for remarks he made about Svend Robinson's.)

The thing that jumped out at me though was this fabulous line from the leader of the opposition:
"We accept his apology and hope that this makes all politicians more aware that false and baseless accusations have no place in the politics of Canada."
Now, when I read that, I very nearly did a spittake - no seriously, it doesn't just happen on TV! In case you missed it, let's repeat that in slow motion: "False. And. Baseless. Accusations. Have. No. Place. In. The. Politics. Of. Canada." Good job, Stephen. Good lord, next the man will be saying that people who engage in unregistered lobbying have no place in the politics of Canada. Oops. Do I have to apologize publicly?

My first visit to a Liberal Blog. Not impressed. I'm typically an undecided voter. Svend, in 2003 should get a sense of humour, He's an acknowledged jewel thief. If "his pictuer might hang eleswhere" offends him, perhaps it's his own shame that is exposed, and for that we shoudl all be sorry.
As for illegal lobbying, it's just not true, so trying to hang that on Harper doesn't really enhance anyone's ideas about your team or your view of Candian values. I hope these are not the values you are telling the world are really shared by all Canadaian. We're not really all liars thieves and money launderers
