I can only hope that something as entertaining as this comes from the dreaded-but-necessary upcoming Canadian elections.
Because when you are dealing with people who are in denial of climate change, don't see dereguation of the oil and gas industries as a problem, think that the solution to every crisis is to drain the purses of the poor while reducing the obligation of the rich further, when a substantial proportion of the opposition party is either a "Birther" or dares not call birtherism nonsense, when a majority of them does not believe in evolotion, or science, and when they think that this particular issue - defending- NPR based on an entirely bogus "investigation," well, mockery and ridicule is the only proper response.
By all means, let's dispense with collegial respect. Respect is due colleagues. People worthy of the chairs and the chambers, people both willing and capable of properly representing the people in their districts.
All of them. Not just their party and corporate sponsors. This sort of childish, petty, nonsensical behavior disrespects the electorate, and there will be hell to pay.
Just ask any Canadian who once voted for the Progressive-Conservative party.
