“Mr. Speaker, in a torturous scrum yesterday, the NDP environment critic twisted herself into a pretzel of contradiction and bizarre ideas,” he growled. He ventured that, so far as her position on Keystone is concerned, Ms. Leslie was afflicted with either “total confusion” or “rank cynicism.”
The NDP critic, 33 years her counterpart’s junior, came back quick. “Mr. Speaker,” she ventured with a smile, “if being a grumpy old man makes one an expert on world...”
And, more generally, has the NDP got the new rat pack? They're busy getting under the gov's skin. Meanwhile the LPoC orates elaborately, our leader winning politeness awards from the Lamestream Media.
I haven't decided yet about the Party Presidency. But surely part of the appeal behind Ms. Copps is the idea that she might teach the party how to hunt & eat meat again. And while the Party Prez shouldn't be a Celeb, I don't know why their having easy access to MSM outlets should be a disqualification. People bitch about Brian Topp, but on the whole his guaranteed spot in the G&M has been a plus for the party.
