It’s not just the editorial page of the Glob & Wail or John Ibbitson’s egregious gluteus-smooching puff-piece on today’s front page; we expect nothing more from the Liberal Party's moribund collection of paid hacks. Hell, it’s not even the way the (supposedly) conservative editorial page of the Post snapped to attention and fell into line as soon as the new GG opened her mouth. It’s how people I thought had a grip on the issues at play are now falling all over themselves to worship at the shrine of the “New Canada” that Mme. Jean allegedly represents.I thought the strangest part of Coyne's piece was the title. "Jean's siren song of freedom". That sounds like a London Fog post title.
Despite public education, one would think that the fate of those who sail towards the song of the Sirens must still be common enough lore for people who make their living writing opinion pieces and headlines.
Odd seas ahead. Fill your ears with wax, everyone.
