Black and Blew

Growing up, my mother used to coach me to beware of people who would might flatter me for their own dishonest gains. Of course, this was the woman who could manipulate my father into buying new carpet with a plan more intricate than a spider's web, but still. I got the message. At least be the one holding the reins.

But of course, as every good teacher should consider, sometimes the student will use the lesson against them.

My mom was too easy. I'd ask her if she'd lost weight. I'd wait ten minutes, then ask her for the car keys. Worked every time.

Conrad Black is asking if Canada's lost weight.

Smarmy bugger is trying to compliment his way back into our good graces. Telling the world that Canada is a 'great world power'. So great, he ditched us like an ugly prom date so he could plunk a 'Lord' in front of his squatty little name a few years back.

Go to hell, Conrad. You're not getting the keys.

We'd be so lucky. Some rat in office will make sure he gets his bloody citizenship back and we'll have to make sure we greet him at the airport with signs and funky smelling projectiles.
