Can this quote be right? Did John Baird, the minister responsible for YELLING REALLY LOUDLY, really go on CTV yesterday and say: “What we don’t want to see is more political games… We at the federal level, we have put politics aside.”
I don’t think he could possibly have said that – because although I remember it getting a little cloudy yesterday afternoon here in the nation’s capital, I am almost positive that at no point did the sun become black as sackcloth of hair and the moon become as blood, a biblical apocalypse being the only fitting response to a whopper that big. That’s just science.
In Baird’s defence, he may have simply been fulfilling the prophesy revealed last Friday at the PM’s event in Cambridge, Ont.: And lo, I beheld a pale horse. And he that sat on him was Mike Duffy. And neither seemed particularly comfortable.
