Mike Duffy: You Know What Made Me a Partisan?
You know when the Con porker Mike Duffy was appointed to the Senate, I thought that was the last time I'd hear from him. Apart from an occasional oink and a burp.
But I guess that was too good to be true.
Duffy spoke at length about Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff's ties to other countries.
He questioned if Canadians are seeing the real Ignatieff, asking, "Is he a multiple personality disorder or something? What is he?"
Duffy also took pointed jabs at other thorns in the Conservative political side, referring to outspoken Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams as "that whack job over in Newfoundland," and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May as "Bucky the Beaver."
Which I guess is pretty funny coming from Puffy the Pig.
Although I like this stuff even better.
Duffy staunchly defended his decision to go to "the other side", saying he wasn't always a partisan while he was still working as a reporter.
"You know what made me a partisan? The Liberals."
Huh? Wot? He wasn't ALWAYS a partisan while he was STILL working as a reporter? Golly. We all knew he was a partisan hack but now he's finally ADMITTED it.
And BTW is that what passes for journalism at CTV News?
CTV Newsnet will run a statement saying it violated the Canadian Association of Broadcasters code of ethics within the next three days at the same time as the Mike Duffy Live program used to air, and again within a week.
You know I thought Bob Rae had the best line of the day, when he said Lisa Raitt probably left the secret documents at CTV's Ottawa bureau because she thought it was a branch of the government.
And who can blame her eh? No wonder the Cons want to kill the CBC.
As for Duffy....he was a lousy journalist. He's a pig of a Senator.
Throw him a whole BBQ chicken...or a bucket of chicken guts.
And oh yeah... ABOLISH the Senate.
Before he disgraces it further...
