But he doesn't really have to show up that often. Get it - it's a Senate joke. Excuse me while I adjust my glasses.
This is from an article written after Dion did less than famously in the last election.
"And the press, with the Aspers' National Post and Mike Duffy's Countdown on CTV leading the pack, gave Harper and the Conservatives nearly unlimited access to their audiences to disseminate the Conservative message, as The Tyee reported in March 2007."
Fast forward to 22/12/2008 and we have this: Duffy, Wallin, Greene among 18 new Senators
And to all you con-trolls who are going to come and say the Libs appointed 2 journalists as GG. True - but GG's have very little above a ceremonial role as evidenced by this month's goings on (she had no legitimacy to do otherwise). This means they can keep their supposed neutrality throughout and after their journalistic careers. In Duffy's case, someone who likely applied for such a post or at least did some serious unofficial lobbying can't have been that neutral to begin with if he's so quick to jump on the CPC bandwagon just two months after the election.
But I guess only the losers complain.
