1st Annual EA Turkey Of The Year Awards

Thanks for waiting everyone ... and congratulations to the "old lame people" (oops.. I mean winners) chosen by the illustrious, and cantankerous Indervidjooul.

Chicken Hawk Award

Jamie at Crittermusing's won the draw for this category. His selection was The Sun Newspaper Chain. Jamie said, "Through thick and thin, they keep on trying to get the word out about just what socialism/fascism and the Libs and Dippers are doing to this country and trying to wake up the ROC. It is a thankless job and they are painted as the bad guys, but in the end they do have some victories for us little guys in the trenches(think rollback of gas allowance increase for the pigs at the trough)".

Hey Jamie. We all appreciate those who look out for the "little guy".... congrats on your win!


Chicken of the Year

Candace from Planet X's was chosen.

McLellan's term as MP has been a disappointment to over 52% of constituents in her riding. The others, who voted for her, despite her lacklustre performance, have much to answer for. Because she is a nice person doesn't cut it. You vote for people based on their ability to get the job done. Portfolio after portfolio, Screech's lack of backbone has allowed the gun registry, health care, youth justice, immigration and border policies to become ineffective and cumbersome fiscally.

Out of touch and, sometimes, we think, out of her mind, this is what she had to say about toughening youth crime:

"Despite what Canadians might say, putting kids in jail, though necessary, is not an effective response to youth crime. ... the get tough approach isn't really what Canadians want."

The chicken award suits this lady. She also has qualified for the Liberal ineffective award. Way to go Swannie. You've done your constituents a disservice. Please quit! Isn't 12 years of pain enough??

A good choice Candace... congrats - and we hope Edmontonians wake up next election.


Rooster of the Year

Sheila's nominee was selected for this category. Sheila pops her head into the door every once in awhile, and we enjoy her feedback always.

Although initially we thought a man should have been chosen, her entry, Carolyn Parrish, after some thought, we decided was an appropriate one.

First of all, without makeup she looks manly. Secondly, she has a mouth like a truckdriver so I think the category suits her.

Here are some infamous quotes from Carolyn showing her true rooster nature:

"Mr. Martin could "go to hell" if he doesn't like my behaviour" (11/19/2004)

"We are not joining the coalition of the idiots". (8/27/2004)

"Damn Americans. I hate those bastards." (8/27/2004)

Americans are "out of step" with the rest of the world(11/5/2004)

I think we can all agree that Carolyn thinks she is the cock of PHill. Good choice Sheila!


Turkey of the Year

And the winner of the Turkey Of The Year Award goes to Bill @ Reformer's Firebrand for his selection of none other than the biggest turkey of them all - Paul Martin.

This is what Bill had to say about Mr. Dithers:

"Turkey of the year? Gotta be Dithers. In any candid mugshot of this washout, from the past year, he has that expression of impending doom...like a turkey gets when he sees the farmer sharpening the axe ;-)"

He sure does Bill!

Here are a few words from our illustrious dinner (oops.. winner):

"Screw the Red Book... Don't tell me what's in the Red Book. I wrote the goddamned thing. And I know that it's a lot of crap." (source: E. Greenspan)

"Talk about Mismanagement 101... Call an inquiry? Dumb move. First Paul knew nothing, then it was a 'sophisticated' group. Today it is, 'I only knew in 2002.' Dummy. This guy probably can't get his toppings straight at Harveys." (source: pissed off Lib backbencher - name not given (Ed: I guess for obvious reasons.. lol).

"The federal government has abandoned its responsibilities with regards to housing problems... The housing crisis is growing at an alarming rate and the government sits there and does nothing. The federal government's role would be that of a partner working with other levels of government, and private and public housing groups. But leadership must come from one source; and a national vision requires some national direction."
(Paul Martin, as Opposition Housing Critic in his 1990 task force report on housing, the recommendations of which he ironically neglected once assuming the role of Federal Finance Minster three years later).

"His public comments are often as amorphous as they are sweeping. Some recent remarks on the Kyoto climate control treaty were so ambiguous that his aides had to clarify that he was indeed in favor of the agreement... What he actually does believe has become a matter of conjecture."
New York Times reporter Clifford Krauss, describing Paul Martin

Congrats Bill! A well deserved choice for sure.

A big thank you to everyone who participated. I hope to make next year bigger and better than ever!

A note to my winners...... please contact me at odysey@shaw.ca and we will get Allysha to design a logo for your site.

Delightful grading of the most deserving examples in their respective classes.

Sheila Fraser took over 12 years to notice Adscam seeping out all over the place, after Allan Cutler raised the alarm obout practices in Guite's office 1993.

She, along with many other *Star* performers were rewarded with rich bonuses for performance.

Now your idea of performance is noticing problems and reporting promptly.

Think again, oh neophyite. Do you suppose performance means sitting on something quietly for years and then picking the least damaging moment to report?

Sheila deserves the roadkill or dead Turkey award flattened by the Deadwood stage in the Ottawa Deadwood Valley. TG

Just glancing over the first 10 to 20 entries will amaze you when you enter Whistle Blower in the search window at http://www.technorati.com

You will get a return of 3,922 entries, but you only need to look at the first 10 - 20 to get an idea of the scope of Whistle Blower Protection.

I thought I knew a lot about it, but this surprised me. This stuff is like reading a wide ranging expose. Fascination! Technorati is a fun site anyway, where you can lay claim to your blogsite and get lots of feedback.

Later, look at URLTrends.com, also, ‘way above average. 73s TG

Way cool! I need a new graphic now that I traded the Hysterical one (although I will be sporting the new "four guys..." one, which isn't all that bad, once Balbulican posts a pro-CPC post (man, that was worth it, I gotta tell ya).

Aiz, I thought you should have won the SDA award and frankly, if Zorph over at the Wingnuterer hadn't been promoting me (for reasons he's never explained), you would have. You had my vote.

Cheers! (And hopefully my Chicken award will not in any way resemble Anne... Or maybe it should, and have an HTML tag, since an election is nearing?) (bwaa ha ha ha ha).

PS: I've been checking back daily, but just saw this tonight, although it's dated Wed. Is that the old Blogger datestamp from when you started the post?)

Worrisome Librano Stealth

=== Bruce Cheadle story = Canadian Press ===
== Liberals announce post -Scandal Audit Rules ==

=================================
Liberal cabinet ministers are claiming their new reforms mark a fundamental shift in Canadian governance.

Opposition MPs are crying foul.
Ottawa will spend $40 million annually and hire up to 300 new auditors as it overhauls the way federal departments internally monitor their own programs, Treasury Board President Reg Alcock told a news conference.

Some 158 separate measures, with another 80 promised in coming days, "will be some of the most fundamental changes in the internal oversight that any government in the world has made," Alcock claimed.

"Prime Minister (Paul) Martin has set the bar very high for all of us."
The hyperbole and timing of the announcement, if not its substance, had Liberal opponents gagging.

"It's totally designed to pre-empt Gomery," said NDP veteran Ed Broadbent.
===== Oct 22/05 Canadian Press on Canada.com ====
====================================
I hope Ed Broadbent is wrong this time.

Gomery will be putting a report of great interest on display in 10 days.
Broadbent seems to suggest the curtains my be pulled so we may be denied
A chance to read Gomery’s report. Hope not TG

I sure will ... they are pretty cool. She spent lot's of time on Paul Martin in particular (she doesn't like dem Libs).

Ya know, I respect c(her)parrish as much as I hate her. And that is a lot. Sure she's a communist America hating, terrorist loving idiot. She speaks HER version of the truth, and mixed some flame to get people to listen. In the end, isn't that all we really want from a fucking politician.

 
At Sun Oct 23, 03:10:00 PM MDT, Blogger KnightofGoodMrIronMan said...

Screech on the other hand... I just can't respect. She has never made one policy directive that has given Canada more JUSTICE.

They arrested some mass-murdering psycopath in Toronto, and all the loon-leftys fawn about what an important arrest it was.

Am I the only fucking person in Canada to ask...

WHY THE FUCK WAS THAT PIECE OF SHIT HERE(for years) IN THE FIRST PLACE?!?!
