How amusing. As Scott points out, all we need is the NAMBLA-powered Dick Evans for the trifecta.
I NEED A WORD BEYOND "IRONY": Really, you just have to look on in amazement that someone like Kate McMillan could have written such an outrageously deluded bit of tripe. Consider the following lunacy:
Traits essential to the building of nations and preservation of democracies -- reason, resolve, creativity, self-reliance, common sense -- are no longer holding their own against the tide of the emotive, reactionary, self-obsessed and risk averse.
Um, right ... that would be Blogging Tory Kate McMillan lamenting the decline of reason, and the depressing upswing of emotive, reactionary self-obsession.
And as for curing a "whiny nation," seriously, can you even imagine a more pathetic bunch of snivelling whiners than Canada's conservatives:
- "He insulted my religion."
- "We Christians are so persecuted, it's not fair."
- "All those liberals use bad words, Mommy, it hurts, make them stop!"
Holy fuck, but it's amusing that the same people who criticize others for whining are the very ones who, if they ever actually volunteered for the wars they love to talk about, would be the ones hunkered down in their foxholes and pissing in their pants.
How the National Post could have printed such self-absorbed twaddle is beyond me. Then again, it is the National Post. Sometimes, that's all the answer you need.
