Is there anything more pathetic than a MP, elected by his/her constituency and paid a generous salary by the Canadian public, getting up in the House and shouting out Leader-approved talking points? This goes for all parties, but in this case I'm talking specifically about the Government speeches in the House today (via Akin).
This last bit from Hoback is not doubt straight out of the script of a soon-to-air CPC attack ad:
"Canadians know that when the leader of the Liberal Party holds a big spenders conference, the only thing that will come out of it is new and creative ways to raise the taxes of Canadian families. That is because the leader of the Liberal Party is not in it for Canadians; he is only in it for himself."
I don't believe that politicians are much less civil than they were a hundred years ago, politics has always been a nasty business. However, I would appreciate a bit of originality.
