Never get between a Liberal and his pork

We get letters! From a Conservative staffer on the Hill today…

Pork chop sandwiches!

(headline inspired by Murray the Hun in the comments)

UPDATE: Another witness on the scene writes to inform that when staffers were grumbling that Ignatieff was cutting the line to go up front he remarked “Don’t worry, I won’t eat any pork”. Of course, the event was to support pork producers and demonstrate that Canadian pork is safe. A staffer quickly corrected Ignatieff and the Liberal leader proceeded to grab a sandwich.

UPDATE: A former Liberal staffer (and current pork lobbyist) who is a friend writes to say that MPs from other parties were also allowed to cut the line for photo-op purposes and insists that some in fact did.

    It is behaviour not unexpected from a toadie. And important to draw attention to to fill in the character profile of this loser. Certainly not a waste of time. Without Kinsella wiping his ass he doesn’t know how to behave in public

  • L Draeger

    Aren't Liberals always first in line at the trough?

  • johndoe124

    Also telling, and quintessentially Canadian, is that nobody in the queue told Iggy to get in line like everyone else. Canada truly is a country of doormats.

    Saved to HD for future use.

    …and he huffed and he puffed and he couldn't bring the house down.

  • stimpy

    cutting in front of line is kinda how he got his present job too isn't it

  • geo

    Oink! Oink!
    What kind of swine does this man think he is?
    Haven't the Liberals handlers not taught him that such peon food
    is not to be touched by the hand,
    but to be eaten with a knife and fork?
    Has Dion not given him the Liberal etiquette of eating in general public lessons before turning over the leadership?

    Looks like the Count is signalling to Bob Rae that it’s time for a nooner.

    Thanks for the updates. I don’t always agree with you but I always know that you’ll be fair. Keep up the good work.

    Someone mentioned that MIMI had to take out a liberal membership card so he could run in his riding. I have heard him say he has been a liberal all his life. Guess he meant he was a liberal in name only, and never a member. And I am wondering if he has ever donated money to the liberal party.
    Did he actually pay for the membership himself or did someone else.
    Does anyone know who decided this man could be the great leader of the liberals, or a great MP, or a great P.M. of Canada. We suspect that a very rich man in the USA is pulling O's strings, who is pulling MIMIs.

    Read the update. MP's from all stripes were jumping the queue.

  • Michael

    Did you know it's illegal to delay an MP from attending the House of Commons for a vote?

    Their time is very valuable, it seems.

  • Michael

    He campaigned for Pearson and Trudeau. Get over yourself.

    I was in line when Ignatieff went by. There were Liberal and Conservative MPs patiently waiting when Ignatieff and about 8 or 10 Liberal MPs cut to the front of the line. When the waiting Liberals saw this, they jumped in behind their leader.

    So tell that to Bourque so he'll stop milking it on his website. :(

  • Richard

    Stop with the the “faux” outrage…

    It is quite clear from the added comment below that this is a tempest in a teapot.

    I'll take Iggy over the Harpertron any time !!!

    This is important. It shows Mr. Ignatieff does not have our Canadian manners. It is another display of Liberal arrogance which is so ingrained in the party hierarchy. It shows that the party that I left in ’93 has not yet learned how to be a party of the people. It shows that the Liberals are still the party the elites. Lines are for commoner’s, not for Liberals, don’tcha know?

    You Cons are funny, and shows to what lengths the desperation has reached to keep diverting attention from the sinking SS Harper.

    Well… if you have a picture of Harper stuffing his face with pork after cutting the line then it would be a wash.

  • terry1

    No picture but pork of a different type is still pork:

    No Terry, We think it is just hilarious. typical me me me .
    Ha Ha.

    How about taken them to the Human Rights Commission? Surely the Pork producers are insulted.

    That’s to prevent official harassment, not to let him get a sandwich.

    Stephen, is it a true rumour that Harper has gone so far left the NDP has offered him Layton's job.

    You maybe the only real conservative left in Ottawa.

    Precisely. SS Harper. Motto for the ship: Your [American] conservative movement is a light and inspiration”.

    How very Canadian.
