Yeah, But He's Still a Member In Good Standing in Harper's Caucus

Oh, what's another racist more or less when it's today's Conservative caucus?

New Brunswick Tory MP John Williams knows a thing or two about messaging. He should given that he previously worked as Steve Harper's communications director.

MP Williams, in a blatant burst of racism took a swipe at brown people brought to Canada under the Temporary Worker Programme.

New Brunswick MP John Williamson told delegates at a conference in Ottawa that it makes no sense to pay “whities” to stay home while companies bring in “brown people” as temporary foreign workers.

Obviously Williams imagined he was safe in the arms of a gaggle of fellow racists.  Being a professional communications guy he never would have said this had he imagined it might get out.

Once iPolitics leaked the story, Williams raced to Twitter to apologize and cough up explanations, excuses.

He should be booted from caucus. That still may happen.

Racist so what - they all are,. Stupid, try pushing Mike Harris as a template for the conservative platform . Ontario voters can barley hold their lunch when Harris is mentioned. Quebec voters remember thanking their lucky stars during the reign
of terror.

Preston needs to shut up and go away to protect his devil's spawn but it seems he wants the cash too much.

Williams provides a superb example of how Michael Kinsley defines a gaffe. It is, he writes, when a politician tells the truth -- as he or she sees it.
