Lately, if you've had the unbridled temerity to complain about the difficulty of life for native Iraqis under U.S. occupation ... whoops, sorry, liberation forces, what you typically get back is, "Oh, yeah? Maybe you think those Iraqis were better off under Saddam! Is that what you think, huh? Huh?"
Yes, apparently, the neo-con defense of the invasion of Iraq has sunk to the point where the best they can do these days is to claim that, hey, George Bush isn't as bad as that murderous thug and dictator Saddam Hussein. That's pretty much the textbook definition of "damning with faint praise," isn't it?
Which brings us to this amusing recent development:
A House of Commons committee has rejected Prime Minister Stephen Harper's star recruit to head the new public appointments commission.
Harper can still appoint Gwyn Morgan, but his minority Conservative government would be doing so against the will of the opposition parties...
where you can read, in the first comment:
Out here in Calgary this douchebag is a hero (Morgan, not Harper)(even though I think Harper is a douche too). You should have read the Sun today extolling Morgan's virtues. Clearly Albertans value raping the land, doing business with Third World dictators, and berating anyone who isn't white and rich. But then again, look at our premier.
which apparently inspired the knee-jerk reaction:
kinda like how hard it is to find an honest Liberal
Liberals hid costs of gun registry, Fraser says
The former Liberal government went to great lengths to hide the true costs of the controversial gun registry, Auditor General Sheila Fraser said in a scathing report released Tuesday.
Well, there you have it. Conservatives across this great country who railed against unspeakable and appalling Liberal corruption for years can take pride in the fact that the Conservative Party of Canada ... isn't quite as bad.
I feel so ... so ... chastised.
