Dusting Off Grandma’s Advice

March 31st, 2006

Grandma used to say “It is better to be silent and be thought a fool than to speak and prove it” (OK, I admit she may have heard it from Mark Twain). Perhaps this is why Stephen Harper wanted to gag his people.

It’s a tough life for Stephen, last week he was vilified for acting all Nazi like and telling his people not to talk to the press, this week, he’s going to be vilified because one of his people talked to the press and acted all Nazi like:

A backbench Conservative MP (Colin Mayes: Okanagan-Shuswap) , blasting the media for its testy relationship with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, has suggested reporters who write distorted articles be jailed…

““Maybe it is time that we hauled off in handcuffs reporters that fabricate stories, or twist information and even falsely accuse citizens,”” he writes.

Memo to the honourable Colin Mayes: What part of shut up do you not understand?

    Not the be picky, but…

    He’s not the Honourable Colin Mayes.

    He is Colin Mayes, MP. In the House of Commons, he’s the Honourable Member for Okanagan-Shuswap.

    OK, I;m being picky…

    No, not picky. Accuracy is important. I didn’t know this one, thought they were all honourable, at least by title.

    Thanks for the correction, and I never let bad typing stop me.
