Paging Nancy Ruth

It’s okay, Nancy Ruth!  All is forgiven!!

Indeed

My eyes! My eyes!

During times of eyeball-popping stress and frustration, I suspect just about everyone has uttered the word “fuck”, or at least had it appear in a little thought-cloud above their head.   Even our Politicians.  Especially them. Why not?

We need to disabuse ourselves of the long-standing popular misconception that our elected officials inhabit some higher plane than the rest of us: they don’t. All the sanctimonious bullpuckey about politicians having higher standards… come on.  Really?  They’re politicians, which by definition makes them slimier and more repugnant by nature than giant garden slugs.  And if they’re conservative politicians, they’re probably harrumphing self-righteous hypocrites to top it off — liberals at least don’t pretend to be anything but pond scum.

So when one of these fine elected officials of ours does something as mundane as drop an F-bomb, we shouldn’t be surprised or outraged: we should be delighted.  We should be flooding Parliament Hill with e-mails demanding that every MP meet an F-bomb quota.  Canadians might actually watch a Question Period that sounded like an episode of the Sopranos.

    It’s the best thing Pat Martin has done in a very long time. But what gets me, is the lack of context on the part of the media. This is unusual for a reason. Pat Martin is extremely pissed off with lack of Parliamentary transparency and function. I WANT to know what the hell is in that budget as should everybody else.

    I have to wonder if the elevated language that parlimentarians use is somsething that drives a wedge between them and voters. If politicians spoke a language that your average voter stood, and weren’t so consistently enamoured (that means “in love with” by the way – can’t make a point about elevated lanaguage if I’m the worst offender) with the sound of their own voices, we MIGHT just have greater voter turn-out and interest. Watching the SECU hearings on C-19 is surely enough to turn most people off, and I can’t say I blame them.

    There’s much hay being made over this issue, but it strikes me that those who are making the hay are being infantile about the whole thing. Heck, I probably used the F-word 50 times this morning just on my way to work. Traffic and I don’t get along. 🙂

    However, if you’re of the opinion that it’s only Conservative MPs who are self-righteous, might I suggest you check out Francis Scrapaleggia’s performance at SECU yesterday? http://parlvu.parl.gc.ca/Parlvu/ContentEntityDetailView.aspx?ContentEntityId=8113. You can get a full-stream of the meeting by clicking “Play, download, or subscribe” near the top. His umm… questions, if they can be called that, take place near the end of the first hour, and near the end of the second hour; he was the last committee member given any time for questions for both sessions – I’m trying to save you the aggravation of having to sit through the whole f*ing thing, because there are many moments that are just painful to watch. I’d especially watch out for the Dawson college Student Union presentation. Really, it’d be funny, if it was so horrendously self-aggrandizing and misinformed.

    I sent him a tweet commending him for being more than a stuffed shirt that most MPs are and saying that we need more of him in the HOC. Lets hope he keeps it up.


Wait. What?
