And Barbara Kay Is A Bitch

 That is all.

Ah, but not quite all: BK invokes "rules" for deciding who gets a state funeral, and says giving Jack one wouldn't be according to Hoyle.  But that's bullshit. In the end its all up to the PM.

What sensationalism. No body can disagree with you or you call them a name? She's not attacking Layton, but you attack her?

Your post is the epitome of the sensationalism that results from the exaggerated emotional response many are succumbing too. Instead of rememberance, you and others are morbidly satisfying some urge of tribal idolism.

Of course she is attacking Layton. There is no "protocol" to invoke here. Invoking one as she does is bullshit. I am against bullshit. You?

Oh so just because she suggested there was protocol where there was not protocol she is a bitch? If I knew your threshold was that low I would have seen your post's association with bullshit alot sooner.

You mean just because she bullshitted in the service of a smear? Bitch seems about right.

No I meant, because of your low threshold of juvenile rhetoric, your post had an association to bullshit that was not dependent on anything Barbara Kay wrote.

BK comes across as a whiner.

My question - as a card-carrying, money-donating, member of the Conservative Party of Canada.

Why all the fear and anger over the outpouring of respect and decency for Jack Layton?

Why did THIS article need to be published THIS week?

It's like following up on Harper's majority win, suddenly, we (Conservatives) are supposed to be worried that everyone in Canada is going to abandon their core beliefs because they happen to have sympathy for Mr. Layton.

I think BCL's characterizing is a bit strong, but, I really don't see why the response to the hyperbole of NDP supporters when they have lost an icon in their party HAS TO BE matched by a war of words from the right side of the spectrum.

I mean - his body is lying in state as we speak on Parliament Hill.

Can we just leave the rhetoric maybe for later next week?

The fact that you are surprised by this tells me that you don't read MJ's blog very often, do you?
He routinely demonstrates the maturity level of a 14-year-old.

Thanks, R.G. Harvie. I think the response from the right wing outrageosphere is doing more harm to the conservative cause than anything that Layton could have said.

Harper has handled it well, but the only one who is actually likely to gain respect is Rob Ford. His heartfelt words, and pointing out he learned from sitting with Layton on council, how to avoid blowing his top "despite our differences" resonated far more than the whining we are hearing everywhere else. Ford won the election because the expected meltdown in the campaign never happened, and I believe he thanks Jack Layton for teaching him how to keep his cool (relatively speaking!).
