I have to admit that I am enjoying every twist and turn in the Margaret Wente plagiarism scandal.
Not because I really care whether she ripped off the words of others eh?
For that snooty right-wing hack was NEVER original.
And in her hands even the works of Shakespeare would read like monkey scribblings.
But because she has the colossal gall to portray herself as a victim.
I’m far from perfect. I make mistakes. But I’m not a serial plagiarist. What I often am is a target for people who don’t like what I write.
I haven’t always lived up to my own standards. I’m sorry for my journalistic lapses, and I think that, when I deserve the heat, I should take it and accept the consequences. But I’m also sorry we live in an age where attacks on people’s character and reputation seem to have become the norm.
When that miserable old reactionary has made a career out of attacking people she doesn't like. And is always smearing the character and reputation of others, especially young Canadians.
For I can never forget how she smeared the gentle idealists of the Occupy movement. Or this ghastly column, which managed to attack the poor Greek people, and the Quebec students.
These masked young men and women are the children of the celebrated Quebec model, which shares a certain mindset with the not-so-celebrated Greek model. The state owes us everything, and if we don’t get it, we’ll riot in the streets!
Meantime, the rest of Canada looks on, appalled. If this is an example of Quebec’s distinct society, we want no part of it. The student protesters are the Greeks of Canada. And we’ve had it.
So foul, so hateful, so fake.
Which for some reason makes me think that if she can't say sorry in print, maybe she could SING IT.
Like Nick Clegg, the leader of Britain's Liberal Democrats recently did. When he put out a video apologizing to British students for failing to keep his promise not to hike their fees.
Only to have it turn into a song...
Golly. That was great. Wouldn't you just LOVE to see Wente singing something similar?
I'm far from perfect. I make mistakes.
I'm always telling people to eat cakes.
I'm so sorry, so sorry for myself.
I like the words of others better than my own
But now I've really done it.
Because goodness knows she was wrong about the Quebec students.
They won and she LOST.
Muahahahahaha. Crisse de babette.
Wente is up the
And we're still celebrating...
