We too were amused by this item in Jane Taber’s blog, to the effect that Peter MacKay is heading home to Nova Scotia and “a dose of reality,” thanks to staffers who’ve rounded up another inflatable pet dog and a new stack of talking points for him. Jane discovers that MacKay’s crack helpers have found a comment on Colleague Wherry’s blog which will, they hope, buck the boss up.
It would probably not help the minister’s mood to learn that the same commenter adds, a short way down in the same thread:
I really don’t care whether Mackay stays or goes. He seems to have botched the government’s defense with his recklessly unequivocal blanket declarations, so maybe it’s time for him to go.
