I just finished watching Baird's despicable appearance on CBC where he bombastically told Don Newman that the Tories were going to go over the heads of Parliament, over the head of the Governor General, and deal directly with the Canadian people.
A decent prime minister, one who respected the country and its parliament, would have booted that punk straight to the backbenches. However Baird is very much of the same grain as his prime minister by which I mean utterly contemptuous of our democracy.
Pierre Trudeau would have relished the chance to vivisect these two clowns, to take them apart - piece by piece - and leave the fetid mess in a gutter. That's what he did with their type and he did it with elan. Trudeau would have handily disposed of Baird as the loudmouthed, lumbering buffoon he is and permanently neutered his vile bombast. But we don't have a Pierre Trudeau today, not even a faint imitation of him. We have Stephane Dion and I'm sure that somewhere, looking down at this farce, Trudeau weeps.
Dion has to realize that every week he extends the suffering of his party makes it that much harder for it to rally, recover and again take the fight to Harper and his trained seals.
Stephane Dion has to do what's right for the Liberal Party. He has to go, now.
