Oh, dear God, here comes the weepingly self-indulgent hairshirts and self-flagellation:
An Uncommon Truths exclusive!
Recent cancer survivor takes employment hiatus and gets pilloried in the media for doing her job.
"...the Prime Minister's sometimes contentious director of communications"
"...who was not popular with the national media..."
"...was known for her stinginess with information..."
"...and for sometimes bullying MPs..."
"...Ms. Buckler was not well-liked..."
"...She also controlled who could speak on certain issues to the media..."
Oh, for fuck's sake. It's unfortunate about the thyroid cancer thing and one hopes Buckler recovers, but she was still a manipulative, vindictive, stone-walling, abrasive cunt at that job, and the less we (the public) ever see of that hideous affront to accountability, transparency and just plain democracy, the better.
Dear Ms. Buckler: My best wishes for a speedy recovery. And thank Christ you're gone.
P.S. Curiously, one searches that blog in vain for even a sniff of sympathy for the numerous Canadians who have been killed by tasers. I'm guessing none of them were Conservatives, is that it, Griff?
Yeah, that must be it.
