Paul Martin Doesn't Disappoint

I couldn't be disappointed by what I knew to expect -- listening to Paul Martin tonight made my stomach churn.

You'd think we'd be used to it by now; Liberals spinning and spinning until they make us sick.
What's worse is listening to call-in shows where people just don't get what's going on. They seem to think that somehow the Opposition is stalling the working of parliament, rather than the government standing frozen like a deer in headlights.

Tonight's TV spectacle was well timed -- what will tomorrow's headlines in our (L)iberal media be . . .

Paul Martin Pleads for Time From Power-Hungry Opposition
or
Paul Martin's Finance Ministry directly linked to Adscam

The newest revelations, documented at Gomery, show that the Finance Department increased the value of a contract when Paul Martin was finance minister, and that one of his friends was paid $75,000 for doing little. This interesting piece of information might well be bumped to the back of the papers tomorrow, in favour of the bleating from the PM.

I still hear people saying that Martin did the 'brave' thing calling the Gomery Inquiry, and that it should be allowed to do its work. Where were these same people when he shut down the Public Accounts Committee in order to call an election? Why didn't these people hold Martin and his cronies accountable last year at the polls when they had a chance? Martin called an election before Gomery could even get started and now he tells us give Gomery a chance to give his report?

Do they think we're stupid? We don't need a judge to tell us how many cancer cells there are and exactly how they have been ravaging the nation -- let's just cut out the whole rotting bunch. If we cut the good with the bad, well, Gomery can let us know in October, and maybe someday we'll let those ones back in.

Denying the opposition parties their days in parliament, and tonight's ignoble display -- using the public airwaves as a free political advertisement rather than facing the harsh light of the House just proves once again that this Liberal government in general, and Paul Martin in particular, has no shame.

Why shouldn't the Glibs consider us stupid- they are still getting away with it, aren't they?

Alas you're too right. When did conservative become a perjorative?
