Another nine miles

Rachel Marsden is back in the news again--National Post: Conservative pundit's latest controversy. Another bad break-up. How bad? Involving the RCMP and national secrets and naked pictures and… what else? Oh, yeah, a pile of personal emails released to the public on her website. In 2005, I wrote a story about Ms. Marsden after she was hired by the National Post. In that piece I quoted Sun chain co-founder Peter Worthington--before the Sun hired her--as saying; "She's good-looking, she's articulate, but she's nine miles of bad road," he says. "You might want to live dangerously, and they seem to have decided they want to do that."

God bless that girl. Just when you think she's going to disappear for good she comes roaring with a new insane drama for us to enjoy. I'm proud to say that my web site, Enter Stage Right, is on her hate list.

I wonder if she is the daughter of the late Pat Marsden,noted Sports Commentator based in Toronto
some years ago. Pat Marsden was a man with definative opinions who was very articulate and I
would say Conservative -Jeez imagine spending more
than two minutes with that gabby Wolf Blitzer world class super mouth -Macleod

Seems that Ms. Marsden has got the left wing bloggers really upset this morning. Most of those guys are scared shitless of real women. Ms. Marsden is a highly skilled professional whose point of view does not agree with the perspectives of the left wing sucked in again Journalists of the MSM,just accept the fact that Puffy Duffy supersuckhole
ain't gonna get into the Senate of Canada during the next one hundred years. But Craig Oliver's Horse has a good chance,especially if they let Taber ride him in the front door. Canadian Journalists fighting among themselves is almost as enjoyable as Hamas shooting Fatah hoodlums full of holes.Dont't forget to wish Ms. Marsden a Merry Christmas -(no coal in her stocking) Macleod

Pierre Bourque (Bourque News Watch) has some great stuff on CBC biased reporting and question fixing on his site at this very moment -21 December 2007.
Nothing the CBC does or fails to do surprises me,
CBC should be disposed of -sell the Corporation minus people to Fox -Fox is available here in backwoods New Brunswick via the State of Maine.CBC
Television in the real east of Canada; the entire Atlantic Region ain't worth watching under any circumstance. But it sure costs us a lot of Loonies
