Jim Prentice, you gutless weasel.
Go. Listen. Fuck, what a pants-pissing coward.
P.S. For the record, that interview did not last the promised 10 minutes, it lasted 7 minutes and 40 seconds. So Prentice is also a liar. I'm sure you're shocked.
AFTERSNARK: You can tell that Prentice is simply trying to run out the clock from the get-go, as he essentially filibusters what should be cut-and-dried questions. "Can I copy stuff from his CDs to his iPod, yes or no?" "Well, that's a very technical question, and we're going to get into details and blah blah blah ..." One can almost visualize Prentice with a timer in front of him, stretching every answer to its maximum. But that's not the worst thing that despicable douchebag did.
No, the worst thing Prentice did was to start some answers with (and I'm paraphrasing), "Well, it's a very complex and long document ...". Yeah, we understand that, Jimbo. But that's precisely why a lot of Canadians aren't going to read it. Instead, they just want to know what's legal and what isn't, you sleazy asswipe. And it's really obnoxious to take what should be a simple yes-or-no question, and wave it off because, well, hey, that legislation is some kind of complicated and you don't want to bother your pretty head over it, know what I mean?
Fuck you, Jimbo. If you can't even answer simple questions about your own legislation, you shouldn't be out there telling people how downright ducky it is and how terrific it is for us consumers.
The more I think about this, the angrier I get. Excuse me while I go open a bottle of wine. It's after lunchtime so I'm good.
