NDP Stupidness: This Time Its Provincial

Cheri DiNovo has fired her three Queen’s Park staffers. The Parkdale-High Park MPP zapped them with late night e-mails – sent out on Labour Day, of all days of the year. The next morning she tried to un-fire them, blaming her managerial zeal on drinking too heavily and being affronted when none of them showed at her community BBQ. This was actually the second time that all of DiNovo’s staffers had been canned electronically, and rather than go back to await a third deletion the Parkdale Three have grieved their firings under the very strong caucus collective agreement.

I would remind everyone that I defended this lady against Cherniak and Kinsella and whoever was running the Lib War-Room in that by-election. So apparently I called one wrong. It happens.

But someone should ask Jack Layton: Yo Jack! Is there anyone in the NDP that doesn't abuse substances? And if not, how are you set for dime bags this week?

It was still the right thing to do to defend her against Cherniak's character assassination.

Not that he learned anything and this time...the payback got a Liberal candidate turfed.

Besides, I'm liking this bibulous socialist more and more.

Which/what/who? I missed all the history on this. What Liberal candidate got turfed and why and how?

Jason always goes for the jugular. Usually, though, its his own.

Carrie, this lady.

BCL, if you talk to enough Liberal staffers you'll find that there are a number of Grit MPs and MPPs who are hard to work for and go through staffers as if they were tissue paper. DiNovo's predecessor for one. The difference is that NDP political staffers are unionized so they can grieve while Liberal staffers have to suffer.

Can you still buy dime bags? Doesn't seem too economical to me but they after all the NDP. How can anyone expect them to manage the nation's finances when they can't manage their recreational budget?

Ti-Guy said...

What's a dime bag, anyway? Dante, can you explain, or are you only familiar with grams?

Thanks BCL.
