The Canadian Liberal Leadership Campaign

Background: The race is on! The Liberal Party of Canada now has 10 candidates vying for the top job. You can read more about them here. All of them are white. Most of them come from Toronto. And all of them strongly feel that they know how to spend your hard-earned wages better than you do. Cynical, racially divisive, and hypocritcal are 3 words that come to mind when I think of these folks.

Is it just my imagination or does the growing Liberal leadership campaign have a strong resemblance to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"? There are some differences of course. Envision what would happen if our merry Liberal crusaders encountered that murderous white rabbit. They would never actually attack the rabbit but instead would setup countless focus groups to find out why the rabbit felt the way it did, what had gone wrong in its past to set it on its murderous path, and how many millions of dollars they could spend to manage its lifestyle in the future. The fact that it would never stop murdering is irrelevant, as long as a program was setup to help it, and countless bureaucrats in the Ottawa-Hull region were perpetually employed.

What is Carolyn Bennett saying? Is she really saying children raised at home will likely become criminals? She said in an interview on budget day and then defended what she said yesterday in Question Period. What gives? Well at least there will be another female doctor and former junior minister in the leadership race to take Dr. Carolyn's place.
