PM's Trashy Mouthpiece

Word has it that during a recent round of drunkeness at the National Press Club, Reid and Don Martin of National Post/Calgary Herald fame got into it.

Martin, who was promised an interview in April with the PM, was mad as hell that his interview is now almost 6 months overdue.

Pissed that Martin was upset, Reid starts slagging on about Alberta, thereby pissing Martin off (although Martin doesn't live in Calgary anymore). The "Fuck You"s start and Martin makes a comment to Reid that his trashing of Alberta is not in line with the PM's intent, which is to alleviate western alienation.

Reid's comment: "Alberta can blow me". Martin responded with a shoulder check and a beer spill all over whiner Reid's suit.

The unfortunate part of this story??? - Martin apologized.

Damm...I think Martin should never have to buy another beer in his life! And I hope the only thing he apologized for was wasting a good beer.

Liberals are up the river without a paddle and the falls are fast approaching.

No wonder they are so touchy. I hope this does not happen. But when some careers draw to a close in infamy, it sometimes happens that one or two may self-destruct.

A scrap over drinks is better than jumping off a ledge on the Parliament buildings. 73s TG

No one ever praised Librano verbal hitman Reid as being a classy gentleman. Looks can be deceiving.

The Libranos are like tigers aware of their imminent demise and therefore fight as such.

For disturbing info re Gomery, Martin, CSL, Desmarais, etc., etc., see my site.

CS, anyone who has watched QP or Duffy Live with Reid as a player knows that, while he MAY know how to spell classy, the definition escapes him.

I'd love to run into him in my back alley (with my 170 lb dog) (not that the dog would DO much, mind you, but it WOULD scare the sh*t out of the little puke)

A little note I sent our PM on this:

Mr. Martin,

Recently, I learned about an incident that involved your chief spokesperson, Mr. Reid, and a journalist. Your representative was overheard speaking quite loudly about his feelings regarding Alberta. I believe the exact words were: “Alberta can blow me.”



I want to commend you and your staff on living up to your promise of ridding the country of Western Alienation. This is just one of many examples showing how you and your people truly feel about my province and my people. For the longest time I did not see it or believe it, but the evidence of what the federal government thinks of Alberta is plain to see, and I have come to the conclusion that it will never change.

In closing, I encourage you to keep Mr. Reid and his like on your staff for as long as possible. It can only benefit my cause of Alberta separation, a movement that has significantly grown since your government came to power.

And to think, I used to believe in Canada.

Regards,

Leigh Patrick Sullivan

Well I hope you got more than the delete button Leigh. There were others who gathered to watch the bruha.

Too bad Darrel Stinson and Myron Thompson weren't there. THEN it'd get entertainin'!

And, Candace, of course I've watched little Scotty on the telly. He's cut from the same toilet paper as Mr. "Shit From Hell".

Don oughta said "Well, ya big fat turd, Ottawa can eat the peanuts outta my poop!" or "Ya can suck the moisture outta my shorts!"

Big doggy, btw. Damn nearly as big as I at 190+. And that's at 5'7". I look and sound quite scary to quite a few folks when they first meet me. Big, bald guys who sound like Darth Vader as a werewolf aren't initially considered teddy bears, so I wouldn't mind saying "Hello, Librano" to Scott myself... just to get him to deposit his lunch into the seat of his shorts... :-)

Ok, now getting back to being a grownup... Scott could use some training in that, himself.

Jeeeez, Roastmaster, you sure do have a way with words..my aching ribs.

Just For Fun The Pope is visiting Washington, D.C., and President Bush takes him out for an afternoon on the Potomac, sailing on the Presidential yacht, the Sequoia. They're admiring the sights when, all of a sudden, the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water.

Secret Service guys start to launch a boat, but president Bush waves them off, saying, "Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't worry." Bush then steps off the yacht onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Holy Father's little hat, bends over picks it up, then walks back to the yacht and climbs aboard. He hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.

The next morning, the headlines in the New York Times, Boston Globe, Atlanta Constitution, Washington Post, Boston Herald, Buffalo News, Houston Chronicle, Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal, Minneapolis Tribune, Denver Post, Albuquerque Journal, Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle all proclaim: "Bush Can't Swim!"

Does the CBC do this in your Province?

CBC Guilty of *Dirty Pool* on Vancouver Island.

Shortly after 12 noon, the CBC had a political sound bite from our provincial NDP leader James. Nothing significant there.. BUT, shortly following were some selected political opinion phone calls and they were not a provincial balance to James at all!

They were Anti-Harper [Federal] calls going on about fear mongering against Harper. Another caller harped on about Harper's change of party and thus *not to be trusted*? Another about no policy.. Web site is filled with policy but the moderator made no mention of it.

This, Aiz, is the most blatant, almost undercover propaganda I have ever witnessed.. These anti- Harper phone calls were carefully selected by the CBC and they were perfectly genuine but selected for most powerful anti- Harper effect.

That time slot was for counter - provincial NDP not Counter - Federal phone - in rebuttal.

The Librano Stealth in hand with CBC stealth continues.
Very effective, and many in the big uninformed CBC audience will accept those phone-ins as spontaneous and genuine. Not so.

They were pre-recorded and carefully selected. It's a plot I tell you.
Ooops, did I say that? This is really dirty pool. Makes me so damn mad! TG

Wait a minute. Was Don apologizing for not beating the snot outta him?

Don should have checked the SOB into the Ottawa River. No real Canadian would have whistled him for roughing, that's for sure.

What is a "Real Canadian"?
Someone who votes criminals into power and keeps them there?
Attacks and brutalizes provincial economies?
Supports Criminals taxing well beyond wild free for all spending habits.
A Socialist?
Someone who arrogantly thinks the world holds a "special place" in their hearts for them because of their "generosity" or "heart", or Anti-Americanisms?

Maybe even all of the above.

Makes me happy to be an ALBERTAN INSTEAD! No Canadians need apply.
