Canadian Cynic is on to something
The gang at that blog (Canadian Cynic) is demanding that Conservative politicians, who said that they were so busy with work that Parliament had to be prorogued, account for their time off work. Well, one of them -- Randy Hoback (Prince Albert) -- should provide a report to his constituents and the House of Commons about the price of suntan oil in California during his vacation (Prince Albert Daily Herald). Lazy idiot.
But wait, you so petulantly whine. It's not fair to tear Hoback a new orifice over his suntanning ways because, after all, he was back in town on time so what's the problem? To which one can fairly respond -- how awesomely stupid are you?
Lest you forget, it was the Sun King Party of Canada who claimed that they had so incredibly much work to do that, by gosh, they desperately needed several extra weeks of non-stop, coffee and amphetamine-fueled, full-blown, gonzo, 24/7, frantic governating just to be ready for March. So when one of them is finally located lounging on the sand and sucking back a few Coronas, to defend him by saying that it's all based on what days he was down there is just really, really lameass.
Oh, and as for cutting someone some slack based on vacation days and when they were taken, need I remind you of one Stephen "Hang on, my liege needs his fluffing!" Taylor:
As Milewski remarked, and as CTV’s Roger Smith confirms below, Michael Ignatieff is on vacation in Europe while Jack Layton is snorkling [sic] in Belize.
In other words, howzabout you whiny wankers put a sock in it? It's just a suggestion.
BECAUSE I AM AN EVIL GENIUS, THAT'S WHY: From the above-linked piece in the Prince Albert Daily Herald, we have Hoback insisting that everything is just ducky:
Despite the rally, Prince Albert MP Randy Hoback said the government's decision to prorogue parliament until March hasn't caused a flood of emails or phone calls to his office.
So if you live in Hoback's riding and you're pissed, here's what you do. You send him an e-mail (email@example.com) telling him what kind of useless, lazy douchebag he is, and you Cc: that email to Prince Albert Daily Herald journo Tessa Holloway (firstname.lastname@example.org). Then the next time Hoback has the gall to suggest that everyone's on board with this whole prorogation thing, Holloway can point out that she's received 673 copies of enraged emails to his office and how the fuck does he explain that?
And that's why you read Canadian Cynic.
