Yeah, that's a bit of a double standard, wouldn't you say?

So let me see if I understand this. We have Canada's conservatives, whining about how, hey, that whole Tom Lukiwski faggot-bashing thing was 16 years ago, for God's sake, let it go, there's a shelf life on shit like that! God almighty, get over it and move on!

On the other hand, did you know that Democratic Senator Robert Byrd was a member of the KKK? No, really. And the fact that that was 66 years ago when he was 24 years old? And that he long ago apologized profusely for that? No, I don't think that's going to let him off the hook, do you?

Are we done here? Yeah, I think we're done here.

WHOOPS, apparently, I broke the BT search engine. Bummer.

Good point.

But of course, that's different.

And Bill Clinton and Trudeau and the NEP, and and and and...

Darn, Cameron copped Trudeau. How far back do the Cons figure is relevant? Can we finally write off Shawinigate and Adscam and Munsinger and every other silly talking point that has nothing whatsoever to do with the current running of our country? Can we just look at what affects us today and for the future? Sorry, was having an "Enchanted" moment. Back to lurking.

How far back do the Cons figure is relevant?

If it's one of theirs? Yesterday is too long ago to be relevant.

If it's not? It's relevant forever.

"Let me put it to you this way -- there's As and Bs. The As are guys like me. The Bs are homosexual faggots with dirt under their fingernails that transmit diseases."
When I first heard this, I assumed it was a gay man decrying that some gays still do not practice safe sex. Kind of like Obama criticizing absentee black fathers.

Good of them to point at Tommy Douglas. Nothing like a reminder of the good old days when being gay meant you are a dangerous sex offender and needed to be jailed.

Well — as we all know — there's As and there's Bs.

If you're an A, it's irrelevant if it was yesterday.

If you're a B — do I have to explain this to youse guys?

The NEP.

Hating Liberals is a religion in Alberta.

And the NDP are communists.

Fucking in-laws.

Red Tory said...

And let's not forget Bob Rae. The "Conservatives" certainly don't! They never seem to miss an opportunity to whine and moan about his tenure as Premier.

Dana Hunter said...

Oh, yes. I know this standard. "A shelf life for thee, but not for me."

I do hope that one day, there will be medication for the mental illness that causes these fuckwits to see the world this way. And plenty of therapy when they realize what incredible hypocrites they are.
