Robert Thibault shoud stay out of serious people's business

After its unfortunate sexist sentiments, and his failure to adequately apologize, the most regrettable part about Liberal MP Robert Thibault's attack on Conservative Senator Marjory LeBreton, is how unnecessary it was.

That’s right. Instead of stooping to insults and name calling, Thibault should be embarrassed he missed going after LeBreton’s obvious deficiency as a politician.

That of course is simple fact that she's a Senator.

As Stephen Harper's hand-picked emissary in the unelected, unaccountable Senate, LeBreton is in part responsible for wasting $80 million a year on a farce that neither Canadians nor Senators take seriously any longer.

But of course only Jack Layton and the NDP have the courage to point that out. Liberals won't because just like the Tories, they are addicted to having their bag-men (and women) and party strategists fed and housed on grandiose Senate salaries.

So in the absence of substantive criticism, Liberals must stoop to sexist insults that put them in league with the worst of Stephen Harper's gang.

In a related note, is it any wonder people don't know what the Liberals stand for anymore?
