Where do people get this stuff?
Susan Riley of the Ottawa Citizen concludes her article about Green party leader Elizabeth May with these words:
What makes her different is the way she frames issues -- like thoughtful people do, weighing all sides, thinking things through, trying to avoid cant and casual abuse. Apart from anything else, it makes her interesting.However, it seems that Riley doesn't even read her own article.
What May has to say about our prime minister:
Harper, she has said, represents "the advent of the U.S. Republican Party in Canada and is not part of any Canadian political tradition."Ah yes, so thoughtful. Calling political opponents traitors and copycats. Lovely.
What Riley herself calls people who disagree with the forced climate change consensus:
She was recently asked by a climate-change denier: "What if you are wrong?"Ah yes, so respectful of all sides. Liken climate change dissenters to holocaust denial. Brilliant, I tells ya!
Actually, Lizzy May reminds me of Stéphane Dion a few weeks ago. Admirers considered him noble and sincere. Then reality hit.
I suspect the same will happen to the so wonderfully thoughtful and amazingly considerate leader of the Green party.
Pass the popcorn.
