Let’s All Act Surprised Together

Minister of Public Safety Vic Toews, seen above denying (on camera) having said the thing he said (on camera) one day previously, today expressed surprise at the contents of Bill C-30, the same bill whose opponents he accused of supporting child pornographers.

I suppose that it would be too much to ask of our public officials, that they’ve actually read and understood their proposed legislation before accusing its opponents of supporting child pornographers. I guess if we insist on competent legislators then the terrorists win.

    yes. that. the best part is, the same idiots who report on this kind of thing also ask the hard-hitting of questions around why people don’t vote.

    yes. that.

    You are understandably busy at the moment. (Hope everything is going well and continues in that manner, by the way!) But I thought you’d enjoy this latest in the continuing saga of Toews vs Toews. In this article he is found to now be denying that he was at all surprised in that interview. How great is that? (Meant in the completely-not-great ironical tone, of course). Also spouts more misinformation about the bill that has got him in the spot light.

    Here’s the link so you can enjoy (and I use that word very loosely) the hole digging at your leisure: http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2012/02/23/vic-toews-responds-to-matt-gurney-and-vice-versa/

    It’s nice to know Herr Toews thinks that not only are 80%+ of Canadians (http://www.priv.gc.ca/media/nr-c/2011/nr-c_110825_e.cfm) are supportive of child pornographers, but are in fact, stupid.
