Managing to claw her way through matters of actual significance, The Blogging Tories' JoJo finds an issue over which to wax apoplectic:
Shining a light on Kitchener Council perks
Ticket-gate continues in Kitchener where the City Fathers of Entitlement are stubbornly holding on to their free Elton John tickets, in spite of taxpayer outrage spilling forth from the news and editorial pages of today's Record.
Yes, JoJo, we've all seen the news, but thanks, anyway ...
Reporters Terry Pender and Frances Barrick ask the front-page question, What else is going on?
Um, yeah, got it, it's outrageous, JoJo ... movin' on, then ...
This editorializing of the news is quite interesting and makes me wonder if the reporters received a fair amount of flack from someone high-up for putting this story under the microscope in the first place. This is Liberal-land after all. Home to Liberal MP Karen Redman and Andrew Telegdi, and MPP John Milloy. The heartland of socialism and entitlement.
All right, JoJo, we get it, it's classless and unfair and those councillors deserve a good spanking, so let's change the subject and talk about ...
As you may recall, Councillor Vrbanovic was recently in Ottawa and on the MDL show pushing for more federal handouts to offset costs for city infrastructure.
Yet he gets a free Elton John ticket courtesy of the Kitchener taxpayer. Why not use it to fix a pothole instead?
Jesus Fucking Christ, JoJo, LET IT GO ALREADY!! God Almighty, but you're over the line from obsessed and way into pathological. Just back away slowly before you have a stroke or something.
Amusingly, JoJo finishes by quoting one of the councillors:
As John Gazzola, one of the few right-leaning council members noted, it is amazing how "serious issues are greeted with indifference, while the tickets issue generated so much buzz."
No shit. And I'm guessing the inherent irony went whizzing right over JoJo's head. Like pretty much everything else.
