Fox News North Seals NDP Majority!

Just to get something out of the way quick.  Jack Layton's been a public figure in Toronto for as long as I've been here, which is over 25 years, and under the public spotlight that long.  This claim is bullshit, though I can't remember if its bullshit I've heard before--years ago--or not. 

And I don't know what the guys at SunTV think they can accomplish with this kind of nonsense.  |Maybe its simply a matter of bumping up their hourly viewing numbers into double-digits.  But you're not going to turn people against the NDP by running this blatent a smear against their leader.

This is funny as hell and worth it’s weight in gold. I guess he mistook the dingy bawdy house full of naked oriental girls for a clean, clinical, public healthcare, massage therapist.

Sun TV needs an NDP government just like Fox News needed Clinton to make their name.

Niles said...

So...an entire former vice squad found Mr. Layton naked in a massage parlour?

If the Sun folks can't even form coherent sentences...

I know, I know, the takeaway is supposed to be, naked-layton-massage parlour.

Even beyond the implied innuendo, didn't Mister Jack volunteer to take his clothes off for the press not too long ago?

Who is this going to excite other than the usual suspects? Like these guys...

If the testimony includes Mr. Layton smoking a joint while he was in the massage parlour, he's looking at majority territory.

"When the policeman and his partner walked into a second-floor room at the Toronto massage parlour, they saw an attractive 5-foot-10 Asian woman who was in her mid-20s and the married, then-Metro councillor, lying on his back in bed."

Jack shouts "I thought it was the chiropractor."

cpc war-room = cornered plague rats.

If they were thinking strategically instead of Rovian dirty tricks, they'd have planted the story about Contempt leader in the hope of trading their evangelicals for Layton's progressives.

;^)

BTW the Cons may have just handed Layton a slam dunk in all the ridings in Qu├ębec.

Just saying.

And ridenrain - if you had 2 brain cells to rub together on cold winter nights, you'd know that keeping one level of a business legit while operating the illicit under the radar is the way it rolls in many places.

In fact, many fundamentalist churches in the US have tricked followers and defrauded them in that very manner.

No, they're not.

Oddly, there may be some truth to it in that he was there, but Chow and Layton deny any hanky-panky taking place.

Some of the details in the Sun article are "cute" in that they have Layton riding off on his bicycle after being lectured by the officers. Layton and bikes. They did their research. :P

Joseph Kerr said...

Ha ha ha now he'll definitely win hee hee hee

Smart thinking putting that $50 on Jack to win ho ho ho ho

ridenhard was working there at the time. She knows what she's talking about.

True that.

But, at the sametime, there are a lot of erotic massage places in Toronto. And they don't work that hard to disguise what they do. If you get Now or Eye the back pages have ad after ad of places offering "erotic services." To be safe, it would probably be best to go to a massage therapist associated with a medical clinic rather than a walk-up. Well, Layton's learned his lesson with regards to that.

This will probably have little effect on the election. If people can vote for Rob Ford after being caught with marijuana, Jack Layton will be fine after this.

ridenrain said...

Yeah, Rise up Jack. Folks are pulling for you.. some more than others.

"...the dingy bawdy house full of naked oriental girls "

Did ridofbrain's lies come from his own imagination, or is he cribbing from O'Reilly?

(I apologize if ridofbrain was, in fact, providing a first-hand description of the massage parlour)

ridenrain said...

I got it from some trashy spy novel called Scar Tissue.

Spin all you like but whenever you see John(jack) on TV, you'll be asking yourself, "is he wearing pants?"

Gene Rayburn said...

I nominate ridofbrain for lamest troll of Election 2011

Lenny said...

Spin?

You're projecting. That was your fictitious massage parlour description.
You lie as naturally as you breath, dontcha, ridofbrain?

ridenrain said...

Lenny: What about it was not true? Did you read the story? There's no way it could be confused for a legitimate place, nor has John(jack) denied him being there, on the bed, naked.

Clearly, Jack got off easy.

Lenny said...

Every word of yours that I quoted.

It's so second nature to you that you don't even realize you're lying, do you?

ridenrain said...

NDP = No Damned Pants.

Lenny said...

My three year old sometimes does that when I try to talk to him about something he's done wrong - he looks away and sings or hums, and pretends he can't hear.

sunsin said...

I can think of at least two people that this bullshit story can be used with to turn them from apathy or Conservative tendencies to voting for the NDP.

Harpy the great cowboy has just blown off another of his toes.

Michael said...

Clinton got a blowjob and diddled an intern with a cigar, and he got elected twice.

Who the hell cares who Layton fucked 20 years ago. A municapal politican getting laid, wow, such a story. And understand that I am saying that as a person voting Tory, and no, I am not just saying that for effect; I REALLY don't give a shit about a person's sex life two decades ago or that he likes Oriental women.

ThinkingManNeil said...

I think most people will see this for what it is; a desperate attempt by a bunch of panicked, unprincipled chuckleheads to throw shit at the clear frontrunner and pray to Jebus something sticks. Most folks won't buy into the "seriousness" of it and those dimwitted rubes -- like ridenrain -- who do aren't worth the trouble anyway. Just goes to show who puts the $20 on the nightstands of David Akin & Sun Media.

Worst case scenario:

Canadians have to imagine Jack Layton having sex with someone he isn't married to.

And then realize the mental image of Layton having extramarital sex is far less disturbing than the mental imagige of Harper having marital sex.

Reality Bites said...

Michael, you didn't have to tell us that you're voting Conservative. The fact that in 2011 you refer to "liking Oriental women" tells us for you.

Holly Stick said...

Egad, Ezra is twittering a sleazy little storm up. He is so happy that somebody found a big stinking heap of shit for him to dive into headfirst and roll around in, oinking and squealing.
