How 'bout that Gomery report
Yeah, I was late coming back from lunch because I stuck around to watch Paul Martin's speech at 1pm, but don't tell anyone I work with that that's why I was late.
Do you think that Paul Martin made a deal with Gomery to spread the blame around to everyone but him? Do you think there was any suspense around the Martin household when they were waiting for the report to be delivered?
Perhaps I'm a bit cynical, but I somehow doubt that Paul Martin needed to see the bound copy to know what he was going to find.
The real question for today is why everyone chose the tie colour they did. Jack Layton was wearing a lovey shade of dark pinky purple with stripes, but it clashed with his poppy. I think it's forgivable for Jack to wear a pink tie though, pink is the lovely colour of his lovely politics. In Jack's case, the poppy and not the tie was what was dragging his outfit down. Paul Martin was wearing a very dark red coloured tie. It seemed to me that on a day when so much media attention was going to be focused on him, that he would choose a tie colour that would set off his poppy, a bold tie colour, maybe something that would match the poppy, like a nice bright liberal red. I'd have thought it was the natural choice. Could it be that Paul Martin wanted to disassociate himself from liberal colours? Don't want to look too much like Jean? Is that it Paul. Well, I suppose that that's completely understandable under the circumstances. I don't remember what tie colour Stephen Harper had on, I was to mesmerised by his dead, ferret-looking eyes to notice his tie. That guy scares me.
