Taking my cue from Andrew Coyne and Quotulatiousness, I'll use some Scarface quotes to explain the current state of Canadian politics.
Paul Martin's Closing words to the House on May 19th:
"Whattaya lookin' at? You're all a bunch of f*cking assholes. You know why? 'Cause you don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your f*cking fingers, and say "that's the bad guy."
So, what dat make you? Good? You're not good; you just know how to hide. Howda lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth--even when I lie. So say goodnight to the bad guy. Come on; the last time you gonna see a bad guy like this, let me tell ya. Come on, make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through; you better get outta his way!"
Say Hello to my little friend!
