Paul Martin: Amateur BSer

Halifax author Laura Penny discusses her new book Your Call is Important to Us: The Truth About Bullsh*t, with Radar magazine:

Radar: Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin: How does he rank on the bullsh*t meter?
LP: He’s up there, but he doesn’t have the effortless ability to drop a load of crap that makes Bush a standout. Although there was a moment earlier this year with Belinda Stronach, who you may have heard of because she’s a pal of Bill Clinton’s. She’s a blonde heiress, the Paris Hilton of Canadian politics.

Radar: I’ve seen photos. She’s not the Paris Hilton of anything.
LP: Well, we’re a dowdy country. The government would have collapsed if Stronach hadn’t switched from the Conservative to the Liberal Party. When Martin announced that she did this because she cared deeply about the country and that it had nothing to do with the impending fall of the government, the press gallery burst out laughing at him. It was f***ing great.

Remember how the media made a big deal of Stockwell Day claiming he hadn't met with that spy dude? Of course Dithers gets a free pass for abusing the trust of a grieving father. Yah, no big deal there.

And you guys stop those ridiculous, insulting comparisons between Belinda Stronach and Paris Hilton. It makes me sick that you could compare a competent businesswoman to a blonde airhead. Apologize to Paris Hilton immediately!

Dingwall's greed/avarice arises from the strain of human vanity as exemplified by Marcos. Marcos sprung from a governance known as a plutocratic oligarchy--- the wealthy rule. AdScam Martin & The Power Cartel are now the Canadian plutocratic oligarchy. One piece of evidence is Robinson's theft of a ring; another piece of evidence is Dingwall's lunches on your dime; another is Pettigrew's chauffeur-scamdal. "More" is the end result of Librano$ avarice. A proposed solution offered by an acquaintance, quote: "Shoot one politician & one from those behind their curtain every Monday morning.">>>>
