Oh fuck off twice.

Apparently the fetus-fetishists have decided to fight dirty over Dr. Morgentaler’s nomination to the Order of Canada — colour me so not shocked.

Conservative Christian groups smarting from abortion activist Henry Morgentaler's appointment to the Order of Canada have now filed a complaint against Supreme Court Justice Beverley McLachlin, demanding she be removed from her post over her role in the awarding of the honour.

No, I'm not kidding.

Forty-two groups, businesses and one individual signed the letter of complaint against McLachlin which was submitted Wednesday to the Canadian Judicial Council, the body responsible for overseeing the conduct of federally appointed judges.

"In order to preserve the integrity of Canada's judicial system, we respectfully ask that you consider this complaint seriously, investigate Beverley McLachlin's inappropriate behaviour and recommend to Parliament that (she) be removed from office," said the letter, dated Aug. 12, and signed by groups ranging from Canadian Physicians for Life to the Right to Life Association of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Vancouver Jesus Agape Church. "The behaviour of (McLachlin) outside the courtroom on the (Order of Canada) advisory council has reduced respect for both her and the Canadian judiciary."

You know what I think is inappropriate, boys and girls? The fact that anyone in this day and age would think for one second that they could impose their views on others. You know, kind of like the anti-choice forces always try to do?

I also think this new tactic is going to bite them on their collective, misogynistic asses. And really, it couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch of mouthbreathers.

Whenever I think they've optimized their stupidity, they out-stupid themselves.

McLachlan's "behaviour" isn't inappropriate to anyone but them. To the rest of us -- that would be 66%, the vast majority, in case anyone's unclear -- this is a dead issue.

This is just the "pro-life" leadership trying to make it look like they're doing something to justify all that money their idiotic followers keep sending them.

Yup. They're become the PETA of the advocacy world...driven to sillier and sillier extremes, become ever more marginal, alienating the middle ground.

Another "activist" Conservative appointee, I might add, albeit from the PC days.

What single minded idiots. I hope their laughed out of the country (fingers crossed).

So the trogs think people should be removable from their political positions because of incompetence or inappropriate behaviour?

Oh, the possibilities are endless, aren't they? Where do we even begin?
