JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: IGNATIEFF RAISES HIS WEAK VOICE ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY HARPER IS DELIBERATING USING UP TIME IN REACHING AN AGREEMENT OVER PAPERS ON ABUSE OF DETAINEES   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

My, how refreshing to read Ignatieff actually speaking to an important issue.

It could not be clearer what Harper is doing.

The Globe has even published one of Tom Flanagan’s trashy columns in which the American neo-con advisor to Harper said in defending prorogation that it was a good idea not to let discrediting information be released concerning Canadian military activities.

Of course, the trouble is that Ignatieff is utterly impotent to do anything.

He can’t normally even speak to great issues, much less act on them.

When we need a hero, we have a clownish idiot-savant.

A coalition or merger cannot come too soon.

Harper is a miserable Republican extremist with a tyrant’s temperament, and he is a good chess player with Ignatieff no match.

Harper’s behavior reminds me of a saying by the late Lyndon Johnson, “It’s probably better to have him inside the tent pissing out, than outside the tent pissing in”

Only in Harper’s case, he is inside the tent pissing in.
