Um ... excuse me?
One Conservative staffer said the document fiasco was a handy pretext to dump the under-performing Bernier — and that Raitt is in a different league.
``Look, she's a competent minister, she's a woman, and she's from Ontario,'' he said.
``You don't throw her under the bus unless you absolutely have to. ... Do you really want to sacrifice a capable, female, Ontario cabinet minister unless you absolutely have to?''
It occurs to me that it's a little hypocritical for Raitt's defenders to bitch and whine that she's being attacked because she's a woman, only to have those defenders turn around and defend her precisely because, you know, she's a woman.
You might want to pick a position and stick with it, kids. As unfamiliar with that concept as you might be.
