It's those omitted details that make all the difference.


Blogging Tory Mathew Siscoe is determined to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Or some similarly tortured metaphor:

Out of curiosity . . .
. . . is Warren Kinsella mocking the former British PM about his religious beliefs?

Because, you know, that'd just be a low-blow, and not the sort of thing you'd expect out of Mr. Kinsella.

Oh . . . wait a minute . . . [paging Stockwell Day, Stockwell Day, to the main office please]

Really? Warren Kinsella made fun of Stockwell Day's religious beliefs? Let's go see:

(There was only one other thing we loved as much - and that was a stellar report on CBC Television, by Senator Paul Hunter, about Mr. Day's belief that dinosaurs and humans co-existed - which prompted me to remark on Canada AM, in a moment of weakness, that the Flintstones was not a documentary.)

Here's a thought, Mathew -- when people drag out Stockie's infamous quote regarding men and dinosaurs, they're not "mocking his religious beliefs," they're merely pointing out how he is an ignorant retard and scientific illiterate.

Please try to appreciate the difference.

Yes, Kinsella is a Liberal, so he must be an atheist and hate religion and...

Oh, wait. No, he's actually very religious himself (just not an ignorant creationist).

Geez, Kinsella spends so much time fellating Harper these days on his blog, it's a wonder the righties even care about him any more.

Unless these complainers are admitting that Day's beliefs are religious, not scientific. Trying to have their cake and eat it too.

It's disgusting how stupid the Blogging Tories are. It's long past being amusing.
