A great man once said, "Politics is inherently stupid." That great man was me.

This moment of levity brought to you by Rex Murphy

"...Don't mock Don Cherry.

You are not worthy to unloose the great man's collar studs. A few of these petulant parliamentary pygmies even had the nerve to suggest that Don Cherry, the single most celebrated Canadian not doing a Las Vegas lounge act, should not be recognized as a distinguished visitor in our House of Commons.

Let me put this with extreme clarity. If people espousing the break-up of Canada, if a party advocating actual separatism from Canada can actually sit in the House of the Federation and receive salaries from the same federation they are desperate to leave, then, by the bobble-headed deity on my dashboard, Don Cherry can sit there as a distinguished visitor..."

(Emphasis mine.)

Well, at least those booing Liberal MP's (for example, the hon. Jean LaPierre) have their priorities straight. Well said, Rex.
