late to the post but you really are kidding aren't you?
If not, then by all means keep at it as fence sitting Canadians go all out and accept your hyperbole.
If you think Harper is right wing then you've gotta get out of Niagara more.

Pedro, you actually believe that Harper is not right wing. Really! Maybe then you also believe that Sarah Palin is a left-wing black man who admires Obama.

Really? Tian-effing-anmen square?
You have got to be kidding me.

If there was to be an apt comparison then at least it would be the Trudeau piroutte behind the Queen or something similar.

When I see false comparisons like this sort of thing it just kind of makes me ever more reluctant to associate with Liberals who seem to always wanting to be equate their tiny gestures with saving-the-world.

If you want to save the world, then you should go and do that.

This isn't that. What's wrong with you people?

James, on the note of anonymity and courage, how's this for irony:

So brave that she didn't use her real last name in her own press release.

Now that is courage!

James.

Her act was one of self-indulgence and petulence.

If she really wants to change things, run for politics.

Like Stephen Harper and his Reform friends did when they weren't happy.

Who has effected more change - a group of fiercly committed Reform Party members who stood up and, agree with them or not, said, "We don't agree with the status quo".. or this petulant child who embarassed whoever hired her and, in the bargain, accomplished absolutely nothing.

But to point out ONE person whom no one in Canada should consider EVER hiring.

Craig Chamberlain said...

... And yet you are talking about her.

Not sure you would be doing that if she was a lowly opposition backbencher standing up in the HofC with the same sign, and doubtedly so as a lowly page holding the same sign somewhere around Centre Block after her shift that day.
