OT: Liberal Party Blog

While I closely follow politics, I promise not to delve into it too much on this blog. However, while mentioning federal MP's on the previous post, I thought I'd add this little tidbit.

Scott Feschuk, a chief speechwriter to Paul Martin, is blogging throughout this first Christmas election campaign since 1979. His blog, which appears on the federal Liberal Party of Canada website, is hilarious. For those of you who are tired of the same, constant political bickering and bantering, Mr. Feschuk provides a more amusing and more light-hearted spin from the Liberal bus.

Here is a sample from yesterday's post:

... But it is my steadfast belief that as a basic principle, truthfulness in public life must be respected. A line must be drawn. And Stephen Harper has crossed that line with his most outrageous statement of the campaign. He said it yesterday. These were his exact words: "I can take a punch."

People of Canada: I beseech you to rise up in outrage at this most dubious of claims. I mean, look at him. A noogie? Sure, Stephen Harper might be able to take a noogie. Ditto a wet willie, a hertz donut and most forms of the wedgie, up to — but not including — The Flying Dutchman. I'll give him that. In the spirit of the holiday season, I’m even willing to go so far as to say the Conservative leader could endure a few seconds of pink belly.

But a punch? Mr. Harper, you go too far.

We know Gilles Duceppe would take the other 3 in a Royal Rumble. It wouldn't even be close.

I wouldn't be surprised. He doesn't wear a visor. ;)
