Golly. I knew if we put Mike Duffy's mug on a milk carton something good might happen.
And sure enough, it did.
He took a short walk in the snow, and finally admitted he was
Senator Mike Duffy says he's going to pay back the living expenses he's claimed for his Ottawa home.
Duffy blamed the Senate for having unclear rules and forms. "We are going to pay it back, and until the rules are clear — and they're not clear now, the forms are not clear, and I hope the Senate will redo the forms to make them clear — I will not claim the housing allowance."
And no doubt it will only be a matter of time before he retracts what he said the other day:
“It’s none of your business,” the senator said. “I’ve said too much already. When it’s all over, you all will be very embarrassed.”
Because he's a classy guy eh?
I hadn’t heard from Duffy for seven years, but shortly after we launched eFrank into cyberspace in the fall of 2005, he called out of the blue to say he was having problems logging onto our new site and, oh, by the way, did you hear the latest about Peter MacKay?
Huh? Is that really you, Mike? Sworn enemy of the satirical press, gracing us with a hot story tip? Yes, indeed, and for the next three years, he proved to be a wellspring of gossip, promoting his Tory chums and attacking colleagues he disliked at CTV.
Even if he is a dummy.
And no doubt the PMO will be putting out a communique saying something like this. "Senator Duffy has admitted he made an honest error. He has repayed the money. And is now free to continue his excellent work on behalf of the people of PEI, from his home in Kanata."
Which will no doubt be followed in due course by another statement, claiming that Patrick Brazeau is just a misunderstood poet.
I'm wounded not, but I'm not slain. I'm brusied and faint they say Just let me lie and bleed awhile; I'll not be long this way.
And how can he be expected to fill out those terribly confusing Senate forms, when he can't even SPELL ?????
And in time, there will be another statement from the PMO, also released late on a Friday afternoon.
Claiming that the Flying

And when it's all over, some Canadians will probably be as confused as Duffy eh?
And say who knew that Senators could be as innocent as lambs?
Or that Stephen Harper wasn't feeding them.
It was just that damn dog....
But of course, I won't be fooled eh? I'll just keep repeating what I've always said.
Make Stephen Harper wear this scandal all the way to the next election.
And abolish that
Before it embarrasses us further...
