Ignatieff Syndrome

Formerly known as "Foot in mouth disease", has again struck the Liberal Party of Canada. When will this man ever learn the old adage of "put the brain in gear before placing mouth in motion"?

Deputy Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff said he sympathized with terror victims but labeled their appearance during the debate as "just a sideshow," prompting an angry response from Basnicki.

"Sideshow? I was a victim of terrorism. My husband was murdered. I don't like to be a victim of politics. The issue here is the security of Canadians," Basnicki remarked.

The response by the widow Basnicki, was as far as I am concerned, tame. I have not been personally affected by any such event, and I am outraged by his comment.

I guess I should not be surprised, considering some of the other things he has come out with in the past.

You must have been equally appalled at the appalling insults Anne Coulter spits at the 9/11 widows who criticized Bush's response and American foreign policy.

Were you?

Perhaps, if I had read or even heard about her comments I would be equally appalled. I don't make it a habit to seek out anything Coulter has to say as she is a bit of a loon... okay a big loon. Right up there with Limbaugh...
