When wingnuts be wingnutty.

The Globe and Mail is suitably (and appropriately) unimpressed:

Still waiting for answers

June 26, 2008

At long last, Maxime Bernier has deigned to speak about the scandal that ended his cabinet career. But only his most ardent supporters - the ones chanting his name last night as he addressed them in his home riding - could seriously believe that the former foreign affairs minister has laid the matter to rest.

If Mr. Bernier had been eager to set the record straight, he would have appeared before the parliamentary committee that for weeks requested his presence. At the very least, he would have answered the questions of reporters. Instead, he delivered a prepared text that sounded more like a campaign speech than an explanation.

And, on the other hand, there are the usual pandering sycophants:

Did anyone else happen to catch Bernier’s speech to les Beaucerons just now?

I thought his speech was very compelling ...

Not surprisingly, that's where I stopped reading. If I was really interested in that kind of delusional unreality, I'd start drinking the stuff stored under the sink.

Thirty three comments and not a single whisper of dissent from the "liberal media bad, poor Bernier" meme. Groan.

Loved this one:

I have often thot,that there will come a day,that this horrible steady destructive ripping apart of a person could lead to a suicide if it got bad enough..God forbid,but I just wish these ‘pundits’ would be a little more restrained,and show a wee bit of compassion.

Yeah, I'm sure they were just FULL of compassion when it was all Adscam, all the time and they were ripping on every Liberal in sight. Hypocrites.

I thought the whole point of survival of the fittest was that the stupid and clueless were supposed to be crushed and removed from the gene pool.
