    Infinite – absolutely right. People will be angry at that, or they may be amused, or they may have all sorts of different reactions. The sad thing is: the one reaction they won’t have is surprise. The political right has spewed so much of this garbage, it’s now expected.

    Perhaps twitter leads us to the sandbox as we try to cram the the soul of wit into 140 character brevity.

    OK I’ll bite who do you think is being stupid: Rachel, Wynne, Trudeau or wasshisname from the Wild Rose?

    Hey Warren, I may be a conservative and you may be a liberal, but I believe we are both suckers for bipartisanship. If so, you will love this as much as I do.

    Such enlightening times for conservatives; one elected politician refers to a gay woman as man and another uses femininity as pejorative towards a male Prime Minister.

    Also in the news, 1/3 of the CPC membership vehemently opposed equal marriage rights by voting no to amending language in party constitution and various sitting CPC MPs equate homosexuality to being a by-product of socialism.

    As much as I’d like to congratulate LGBTory for their efforts, their amendment was effectively a flaccid cop-out that still allows “conscientious opposition and protection by the party” in upholding their beliefs. Its a compromise that leaves them where they started; anyone can run and champion anti-LGBT beliefs as a CPC candidate and not be barred nomination under the party’s constitution.

    Good luck convincing Canadians you’re not bat-shit crazy with all this good stuff going on.

    ROFL, Sandbox Singularity… I presume you are equating Bozo Eruptions with gravity waves, the only force able to escape the event horizon around the sandbox singularity.

    bluegreenblogger: Wanna talk Bozo Eruptions? Try this one on. A local school board trustee says to a group of students during a First Nations drumming performance at the opening of a new school in his electoral district “How much would it take for you guys (students) to go over there and tell them there’s more to music than banging on a drum and yelling?” Gilchrist reportedly said to students.

    “I wouldn’t have been so eager to take over this country if I’d known that was the kind of music they played here,” Gilchrist reportedly said.

    “I don’t feel so bad that we took over their country,” Gilchrist reportedly also said.”

    And for all these bon mots, he gets a “censure”. The Kicker: The Twitter hashtag for his Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board is #KPRis Awesome
