Rock on, Single Girl!

But don’t work with dogs, children or idiot Liberals

Contrarian that I am, I don’t agree that 22 Minutes actress Geri Hall’s ambush of the Guinster at the Ontario Legislature today was that much of a disaster. The only disaster I saw was the beyond-wooden-to-the-point-of-outright-petrified Premier Pinocchio. What do you say about someone so humourless that he can’t even be an effective straight man?

Proof yet again that Conservatives are funnier than Liberals. Stephen Harper’s mischievous query as to whether Hall was into handcuffs remains my favourite moment of the 2008 election.

On the other hand, the media’s spin on the supposed poor taste of CBC’s 22 Minutes trying to be funny during a recession, may provide some helpful cover for telling the CBC that the government can hardly be expected to insulate them from the tsunami of recession and imploding media business models that are decimating private media properties.

My view? There’s no such thing as an economy bad enough to preclude the ridiculing of politicians. In fact, when times are tough, we need it more than ever. But Geri should stick with Conservatives.

As for the indignation of reliable jackass Peter Kormos, wasn’t he posing for a Sunshine Boy photo in the middle of a recession that was being made worse by his own government?

You have a good memory! He posed as a Sunshine Boy just as the recession began . . . and has dressed like a bum ever since.

I really wish that guy would learn how to iron a shirt! =P

I disagree. I prefer my communists to look the part so we can pick them out of the crowd, or in this case, the scrum.
