Captain Canada and adorable smear merchant Stephen Taylor drags himself out of bed, checks his e-mail for marching orders from the PMO, and dutifully gets to work:
Oops, I’m sorry. The paragraph above erroneously cited the name of Rahim Jaffer. The excerpt above is not about the former MP who is the subject of a probe into website fibbery (and some alleged “puffery”) by the House of Commons ethics committee, but was rather in reference to a sitting Member of Parliament. I regret the deliberate yet illustrative error.
Wow, MP Derek Lee must have done something egregiously unethical to merit this kind of smear. Oh, wait ... Taylor continues:
Now, of course, Lee has has [sic] probably not anything [sic] wrong here ...
But "probably" not doing anything wrong has never been a defense when Stephen Taylor is on the case. Hey, Stephen Taylor has probably never snorted coke off a busty hooker's ass. Probably. And let's not let facts like that Lee cleared all of his work through the Ethics Commissioner before doing any of it get in the way of a good old-fashioned character assassination.
In any event, we can safely conclude that Taylor and his coterie of brain-damaged flying monkeys have all received their instructions and are on the march, torches and pitchforks in hand. Because Rahim Jaffer is to be defended at all costs. And if Derek Lee turns out to be collateral damage, so be it.
