Mulroney's Baloney

The problem with cases that take so long to wend their way through the courts is they eventually worm their way out of our consciousness. That is a bad thing, especially when the issue at hand is whether the former Prime Minister of Canada, Brian Mulroney, had his palm greased by a slimy German-Canadian arms lobbyist named Karlheinz Schreiber.

While there are many telling factors at play here (like Mulroney 'telling' a court hearing that he had 'coffee' with Schreiber, but nothing more, like Mulroney 'telling' the Canadian government he would accept $2M to settle a suit where he said they had damaged his reputation by accusing him of his Swiss holdings - which, uhm, was true. Can I have my money back?) perhaps the most telling is this one: Schreiber said he paid Mulroney $300,000. Mulroney argued that he'd only received $225,000.

There's an old saying that's applicable here, Mr. Mulroney. Once we're down to arguing about the price, we've already ascertained what you are.

There was a reason he was dubbed "Lyin' Brian" by the press...

He was an asshat then and he's an asshat now. The Grits should never have given in and paid him off.

Given the findings/conclusion yesterday, should he not be made to pay back the so-called 'compensation' of $2.1 million he received from the RCMP -- plus interest?

Every time he lies, his chin grows.

Oh my!
