Margaret Wente's Hypocritical Attack on Elizabeth May
Oh boy. I knew it was just a matter of time before Margaret Wente, our Marie Antoinette, would look down from her high throne.
Or her high horse in the Con media.
And condemn Elizabeth May in the most contemptuous manner possible.
Elizabeth May, however, loves the media, and they treat her well. The fact that she’s a little wacky is considered part of her charm. She is a sort of parliamentary mascot. Nobody takes her seriously, but she gets respectful coverage because her cause is thought to be high-minded.
When in fact more people take May seriously than they do Wente. She is high-minded unlike that Con hack.
She is right on most issues, including this one.
The weirdest thing about Green Party Leader Elizabeth May’s “bizarre” press gallery dinner speech is that she was right. Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Omar Khadr does have more class “than the whole f---ing cabinet.”
Which is more than we can say for our Marie Antoinette.
And as for this piece of soggy cake...
Ms. May gets away with stuff that no other politician would – certainly no party leader. Imagine the fuss if any Conservative had delivered such a bumbling, profanity-laced speech to the nation’s leading journos. He would have been booed off the stage. He would have been judged unfit for his position and relegated to the nether regions of the party for the rest of his career.
It couldn't be more hypocritical.
Considering Wente's long record of shameless plagiarism.
And the fact that she gets away with stuff no other writer would.
And if she didn't work for the right-wing Globe, would have been judged unfit for her position long ago, and relegated to the nether regions of the classified ads section for the rest of her shabby career.
Margaret Wente, always a bourgeois Con.
A Harper groupie.
And a disgrace to her profession...
