Congratulations, Gordon O'Connor!
If the Globe and Mail report here is true, then when Stephen "Accountability is my middle, hell my only name" Harper said that the families of the four soldiers killed in Afghanistan a couple of weeks ago were contacted to see if they wanted media present at the repatriation ceremony in Trenton, he, um, lied.
Yes, the saviour of the Right, the Anal One, he of the manly-handshake-go-get'em-son, lied to the public. To a reporter. One of the more trusting "local" variety, naturally, but to a reporter nonetheless. Of course the national press, the "liberal" media were not involved in this, but it appears they are getting into it now. And now, Stevie is backtracking.
And so, as widdew Stevie twists his blankie in impotent rage, I present Gordon O'Connor with the first "hammer" award - 'cuz you know he's gettin' his peepee slapped as we speak. Good work, Gordon; I hope you didn't completely cut your lobbying ties, you might need the steady income sooner than you think. More time with the family is nice and all, but it doesn't put bread on the table.
Thanks to Doug for pointing this out!
