Apparently, the hard-nosed, kick-ass, take-no-prisoners, "Are you talkin' to me? Are you fucking talkin' to me!?!?" conservative political flunkies who promise to protect us all from the murderous Islamojihadifarians are the same ones who are too pants-pissing terrified to answer the questions of Parliament, 'cuz those committee members are really, really mean people and they can hurt someone's feelings.
Luckily, you can always count on John Baird to show up, scream at someone, punch a lady in the face and bite the head off a live chicken.
BONUS TRACK: What Dave said:
Dimitri Soudas is a coward.
He is a chickenshit, cowering piece of quivering liver. He cries for his mother when things don't go his way.
He is a conservative.
He let's other people fight his battles.
We have put the defence and the security of this country in the hands of the likes of him. Isn't that reassuring?
Look what a piece of cowardly crap your vote got you.
Want a piece of me Dimitri? No problem, you cowardly turd. Single combat. Look it up.
I'm fairly sure Dave means it, too.
