There must be good men and women in the Liberal Party -- they can't all be corrupt and morally bankrupt -- and yet, they'll be in the House tomorrow, jeering and cheering as is required of them by Dear Leader.
An ethics professor on CTV tonight said that Tim Murphy did not cross the line into criminality. He said with a straight face, that the tapes are ambiguous and that Murphy did not offer anything so he did not cross the line.
There is no line anymore. How can you be unethical, if there are no ethics? How can you behave immorally, if morality is relative.
The PM says: Grewal 'approached'. I don't believe it's true, but in another place, at another time, that would not have mattered. The illegal actions of two senior members of the PM's staff would have been enough to have the government fall.
Do Canadians want gay marriage, and hate Christians so much that they can turn a blind eye to this? I admit, I am biased against the Liberals at this juncture in my life -- but I can't see how anyone could accept that they did no wrong, and that there was nothing wrong with what they did.
Scott Reid even tried to paint this as 'entrapment'. The laugh is that in order to be entrapped, Grewal would have had to have been working as an agent for the government or the police.
There are questions as to whether this will even be investigated --- he obviously was not working on behalf of any policing agency -- and the government certainly wouldn't set itself up -- it was trying to prop itself up.
It is not illegal for a private citizen to record conversations and not disclose the taping of the converstations. People are trying to make out the issue of the taping is somehow as shocking and unethical as attempting to bribe MPs in order to maintain a tenous grasp on power.
There is no spin that can make this anything but what it is.
The sound of the media's indifference is deafening.
