    The reason this thing about elites resonates is because perception is that they (usually self-appointed blow hards) expect special treatment or status (their dumb kids get jobs they suck at, expect special treatment etc) here we have Dr evil doing exactly what is most obnoxious about “elites”. This neediness for recognition of status. Get me a bucket I feel sick –

    Why is there a link to a hotel in your tweet?

      There is?

        There was. Now it says “From’s Maclean’s” instead (without a link to Maclean’s).

    In her quest to become Canada’s Slightly More Odious Version of Donald Trump by becoming master of the dog whistle, Leitch appears to have forgotten that the Hippocratic Oath used by the University of Toronto (her alma mater) focuses on treating the sick human rather than the disease and participating in the larger community of humanity. The Oath includes the phrase, “I will keep them from harm and injustice.” Physician, heal thyself.

    Why are there never any charismatic conservatives?
    Name me one in the past 50 years.
    You wanna be PM WK..? Be a fun gig, lots of holidays.
    Say you’ve seen the light, run as a fiscal conservative and a social liberal, zing zang a zula your our PM, don’t even speak, just point at Mrs. K.
    This list of Conservative leadership hopefuls is depressing and embarrassing.

      Brian Mulroney was supposedly charismatic. If you count him as a conservative, that is.

      Personally, I’ve long been fed up of “charisma” in politics.

      Conservatives have a lot of traits. Fear of immigration, cultural rigidity – suffocating rigidity that starves business of innovation, an obsession with crime and suspicion not for real concern, but as a rational to go overboard with police (they gravitate towards a police state, surveillance society) and as a rational to pick fights with the supreme court, and devalue the charter, and harass liberals in their community, and also bad taste in music. The one thing they almost never have is charisma.

        The Doctor says:

        They make broad, sweeping generalizations about other people too. Don’t forget about that one.

          They sure do. Remember that comment about easterners and ethnics, and then there’s the one about the east and it’s culture of defeat – and then the letter penned to build a firewall to keep themselves in, and everybody else out – so yeah – they do make broad sweeping generalizations about other people.

            If you use broad sweeping generalizations in elections, or leadership races to motivate your base, well then it’s fair to say there’s an assumption that broad sweeping generalizations will motivate the base. If a strategy takes aim at fear, whether in a general election, or a leadership race, well then those employing said strategy must assume there’s an acceptance of broad sweeping generalizations within the ranks. Otherwise there would be a strategy of inclusion, but that’s not the case with Leitch, and it clearly wasn’t during the general election. Not all members of the conservative party agree with this, but it was the underlying strategy in the last election, and a strategy employed by the subject of this thread.

    Oh, she’s a petty narcissist as well?

    Great, just add that to the list of other reasons why this woman is so goddamn unlikable.

    Going to share this around some places. She’s putting on this facade and it needs to be exposed.

    She can call herself whatever she wants as long as it isn’t Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.

    Thanks for posting this Warren. I find this anecdote oddly cheering and illustrative of Leitch’s character – in both the Victorian novel and SNL low comedy senses. However I am also aware that we must be more vigilant than ever that these examples of found satire do not fly back at us on election day. However, I am confident that Canadians, unlike the English, will this Ben Carson/Trump/Farage/LePen mutant hybrid learns the full meaning of payback when it counts.

    Nearly every surgeon I’ve ever met has been an egotistical asshole. No surprise there.

    Tim Sullivan says:

    She’s a physician who is so well off, she volunteers at CHEO (taking away billable work from people, who, you know, work at that stuff) and is critical of “elites”, though ill-defined. She’s taught at med school, too.

    Not like an elite, that is.

      Jim says:

      There are many, many things to dislike about Ms. Leitch, but the fact that she volunteers her time in our cash-strapped medical system is absolutely NOT one of them. This may be the most asinine criticism of a politician that I’ve ever heard.

        Tim Sullivan says:

        I’m not even sure it’s true she’s not getting paid, but if she isn’t, she’s not doing it because of any generosity of spirit. She’s doing it to keep her license, so someone is paying it for her.

        “Cash strapped medical system”? That’s the most asinine characterization of Canada’s medical system I’ve ever heard. You’re sounding like a province. We have hospitals going bankrupt, do we? Doctors begging on the street? People not getting service at emergency departments?

        Health is about 40% of Ontario’s budget. The government of Ontario is really just a health insurance company. Dr. Leitch’s missed billings are hardly what’s keeping us afloat.

        Someone is paying for her practice even if she is not billing OHIP. Someone is a hero in this story, maybe, and it is not Kellie Leitch.
