Here he is in a Vancouver bar last night, just before he was stopped by police. For jaywalking, maybe more. He was drinking a Coke, he says, and nothing else.
Some folks remain upset Mayor Crackhead, when in public, attracts young people who want a selfie with him. That, as I’ve suggested before, is the Paris Hilton Syndrome (here). Young people don’t think of him as a leader; they think of him as a celebrity, the guy who David Letterman makes fun of.
Other folks are upset that young people don’t seem to think his crack-smoking, heroin-using, drunk-driving, pissing-in-parks behaviour is wrong. That, I suggest, is because (a) young people don’t really vote anymore and (b) young people don’t consider high public office to be in any way dignified or respectable. At all.

Harper and PMO will lose: falsely calling someone a terrorist is among the most serious libels you can make. They’ll insist on settling with a non-disclose, but if I were advising NCCM – and I am not, and have not – I’d tell them to get stuffed. An apology made in secret isn’t one.
