No brains, no couth, no scruples required, just the gift of rote and a Facebook-style desire to become more "liked" than the next weak ego.
Granted this does not describe all parliamentarians, just the ones who get promoted according to the Peter Principle.
Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, for example: He's the guy who was caught out claiming to be the "architect" of a particularly bloody but apparently highly satisfying Afghanistan skirmish. Not something some others of us might be proud of -- not either of being the architect, nor claiming to be.
The explanation was that he "deviated from the prepared text". Does that not pretty much say it all about the level of sagacity required for the position of a parliamentary Minister?
Check out the video in this article: Sajjan mostly just rattles off memorized responses like a high-school boy reciting in front of the class. When pressed for actual details or rationale, he nervously stumbles, tries to make up something, then resorts instead to the statement prepared for him, which, basically, is "If we say it, then it's true".
When I was in high school I rather enjoyed my baloney sandwich lunches, but I'm more than grown up now and baloney has become way too bourgeois.
I can't help wondering how long it will be before Vassy Kapelos starts tearing out her hair on camera.
Then there's this prize winner: John McKay. Look at his evil grin. He's so happy to be getting noticed. He's proud of himself and his ability to talk out of both sides of his mouth in order to haul in more "likes" than the Conservative who will be running against him in the next election. It's pretty clear that had there been a neo-con opening in his riding he would have made a beeline for it.
I'm reminded of a childhood friend, now deceased, who didn't go far in school, but matured into an entrepreneurial type with a talent for talking his way into lots of money. He did a stint as a promoter for a popular evangelist once, and recounted to me how amazingly easy it was to "con those little Christians". No doubt, Mr. McKay is aware of that as well, but if he had a scruple to his name he would admit he's been occupying the wrong pew.
As for the issue he espouses, I hope I've made myself clear enough: Here and Here.
And now -- FOR THE LOVE OF GOD -- let those African refugees into Canada -- if they want to be here -- and just face the fact that Israel is little more than a private club where one, at the very least, has to be white to be accepted.
I can't tell you how much the below image upsets me. It's unthinkable that any person "of colour" in this day and age should have been reduced to literally debasing himself in an effort to elicit ordinary human concern for his ongoing predicament.
It's a terrible thing to have to say, but Israelis are showing every sign of having become all that they once lamented.
Big Thanks to Chycho who took the trouble to email me about my misspelling of "Politician" in the title. Big hug, Chycho! If anyone else ever notices a gaffe, feel free to let me know.
