Conservative MP Deletes Offensive Tweets

Yesterday, Tory MP Bob Zimmer for Prince George-Peace River made a number of really stupid comments re the closure of the Marine Rescue Centre in St. John’s, NFLD., basically joking that shutting down a service that many regard as life-saving was a fine thing and a sign of Stephen Harper's "leadership" qualities.  I bitched, as did some others.  And you know the tweeter in question realizes he's fucked up when he deletes the material in question, which somebody in the Zimmer camp did, as has been pointed out by others.  That's what I call "apology by stealth". 

Tomorrow morning, Mr. Zimmer ought to come out and do it properly--which is to say: publicly.
