As I'm sure you know, I have absolutely no respect for most of the Parliamentary press gang.
They are incredibly mediocre, gratingly provincial, almost entirely dedicated to trying to return the Cons to power, to satisfy their corporate masters.
And their coverage of Justin Trudeau's visit to India, from their perches in drab downtown Ottawa, couldn't have been more appalling and disgraceful.
At the CNN town hall the other night, Emma Gonzalez and other Parkland Massacre survivors were able to put the NRA's representative Dana Loesch on the spot.
Or tame the beast into submission.
But yesterday the NRA struck back with it's hideous leader Wayne LaPierre roaring like a maniac.
The head of the National Rifle Association, Wayne LaPierre, leveled a searing indictment on Thursday against liberal Democrats, the news media and political opportunists he said were joined together in a socialist plot to “eradicate all individual freedoms.”
Or a fascist.
And Dana Loesch never sounding so animal.

It was a day to remember. A day of extraordinary sights and sounds.
Like Donald Trump being forced to listen to sobbing teenagers and the parents of their murdered friends.
And trying to show he felt their pain, with the help of some scribbled notes.
Which as Billy Bragg says is beyond belief.
When I saw this pic late last night I thought it must have been photoshopped. Apparently not. Turns out that the President of the United States needs notes to remind him to how to show empathy. Staff have to tell him he should say 'I hear you' to Parkland survivors and families. https://t.co/m4RsAelYDV— Billy Bragg (@billybragg) February 22, 2018
And says so much about Trump the man and the President.
But on such an extraordinary day, I think I enjoyed this sight the most.

When I was a boy no book made more of an impression on me than did William Golding's Lord of the Flies.
And no scene was more horrifying than the one when the gentle Simon comes across the Lord of the Flies himself, a pig's head on a stake.
And as the other boys rampage across the island, with their sharpened spears and painted faces, is made to understand that we are The Beast.
Shortly before he is murdered.
So welcome to my nightmare.

For a long time after the Con regime went down in flames, and was humiliated beyond recognition, Pierre Poilievre all but faded into the woodwork.
Or lost himself in the midst of all those Con losers. I mean just look at them.
But then the fake Aga Khan scandal gave him a new lease on life, and another chance to attack Justin Trudeau and his family.
And now he's at it again.

Earlier today I looked at what Donald Trump might be hiding.
And quoted what the New York Times' Thomas Friedman had to say about that.
President Trump is either totally compromised by the Russians or is a towering fool, or both, but either way he has shown himself unwilling or unable to defend America against a Russian campaign to divide and undermine our democracy.
Which was encouraging.
But now Heather Mallick asks whether Trump can be blackmailed over sex?
Ever since Robert Mueller indicted thirteen Russians for interfering in the 2016 election, Donald Trump has been acting like he's finally losing his marbles.
Lashing out at just about everybody.
President Trump lashed out with fresh anger about the intensifying Russia probe over the weekend, accusing Democrats of enabling a foreign adversary to interfere in the 2016 election and attacking the FBI as well as his own national security adviser.
From his own staff to Oprah.
At everybody that is except the Russians.

Most school massacres in the United States follow a depressing and predictable pattern.
First there is the horror and the shock. Then there are tears and teddy bears, and candles, and heartbreaking pain and sorrow.
And then the dead are forgotten by those who didn't know them or love them.
Until the next massacre tears another community apart.
But the slaughter of 17 students and teachers in Parkland, Florida, the other day seems to be different.
For this time there's a burning anger.
Donald Trump can rant and rave about Robert Mueller's indictment of 13 Russian trolls
He can claim the indictments shows there was no collusion.
He can try to discredit the FBI.
As only a pathetic and increasingly desperate dotard could.
But he can't call Russian interference a hoax any longer.
And he can't fire Mueller.

I always knew the Ontario PC's leadership race was a Con clown show.
But who knew it could be THAT funny?
I knew Patrick Brown could play a really good mummy.
But who knew he could also play a really scary Con zombie?
