The Blogging Tories' Stephen Taylor channels his inner 8-year-old:
... when Stephane Dion whines that Stephen Harper is being unfair, he is not appealing to our sense of sympathy, he is unwittingly appealing to our schoolyard instincts. Nobody likes the whiner and his whiny mother in the press gallery who called our parents and the principal ...
... Too bad for Stephane, he can't whine and take his ball home. This Parliament is Harper's and our pal Steve is the king of the court.
Um, yeah ... about that whining and taking one's ball home, Stephen:
Harper to avoid national media, claiming bias
Prime Minister Stephen Harper accused members of the national media on Wednesday of bias, vowing to avoid them from now on in favour of less hostile local reporters.
Harper told a London, Ont. TV station in an interview that the Ottawa press gallery has decided to become the Official Opposition to his Conservative government, and that he's experiencing difficulty that no Liberal prime minister would ever have to face.
Somehow, Stephen Taylor's phrase "the whiner and his whiny mother" keeps coming back to me. Go figure.
