In honour of Liberal MP Carolyn Parrish’s spate of America-bashing, Torontoist feels compelled to add to the incendiary mood with a link to this piece about increasing fuel costs and American fattery. Maybe this is why Air Canada chose to hire the frighteningly stickish Celine Dion as its post-bankruptcy spokesgal – fatties need not apply to fly.
But back to Parrish’s inflammatory parliament turn. Torontoist agrees that there’s much to fear in four more years o’ Bush, but Ms. Parrish could have been a little more mindful of the 51,000,000 Americans who voted for Kerry. And she is an MP. As the pseudo-journalistic riffraff that we are, Torontoist feels comfortable shouting the occasional html invective. But we’re not MPs. And we don’t hurl our opinions in places where they can wreak havoc on International diplomacy. Except maybe that time we started yelling anti-Bush slurs in Texas.
