First, there's Steve working himself into high dudgeon over some allegedly ugly racial insinuations:
OK, I don't think that's what was meant:
... Manitoba Premier Gary Doer got delegates fired up with his warning that in the last 12 months, Canada has moved backwards on the "3 Ks — kids, Kelowna and Kyoto."
Let's hear the assembled throng start chanting "Kay-Kay-Kay! Kay-Kay-Kay! Kay-Kay-Kay!"
Sheesh, imagine if a Conservative had said something like that. Where's Hedy Fry when you need her?
Wow. That's pretty appalling stuff. Until you realize that the three 'K's that Doer was referring to were issues he clearly supported, and was accusing the Conservative government of abandoning, which kind of blows a hole in Steve's analogy but since you weren't really expecting anything resembling coherent logic from him in the first place, well, no harm, no foul, know what I mean?
And then there's Steve, suddenly discovering a sense of literary responsibility and integrity:
An Australian high school teacher who wrote a textbook teaching that the US and Israel are behind state terrorism, and that the Australian government is reaping the benefits from global terrorism, is shocked at the furious reaction. I'm shocked that he's shocked.
Um, yeah -- the hideous injustice of factually questionable or ideologically-biased propaganda being foisted on the public. Man, that just has to suck, right, Steve?
If I have to explain that last part, you just have not been paying attention lately.
