Mark Holland is Fatuous Twit

"Perry Mason on Steroids" indeed. I've been watching Mark Holland over the past few days, and he's such a phoney. Maher Arar went through hell because of the RCMP under his government's watch. Now he's acting as if Arar's ordeal is the fault of the Conservatives - my, my, what a short memory Mr. Holland has.

The worst part about this is that he doesn't even seem to care for what Maher Arar went through. His primary concern seems to be milking the Arar tragedy for all its worth in a weird and nonsensical effort to defame the Conservatives. Despite the fact that the Public Safety Minister has already answered his rather fatuous questions in committee, Holland went ahead and asked the very same questions again in Question Period this week - for the benefit of the cameras and those of you viewing at home. That Mark Holland, what a go-getter!

And CTV's coverage of his asinine behaviour almost reeks of cheerleading. "Tough answers" are what Holland is seeking, apparently. Well, he's already got them. So why is he still asking the same questions?

And then there's this little gem:

"Now we have deputy officials and the security advisor who despite this file being as large and important as it is are saying they're simply too busy to talk to our committee."

Holland wouldn't go so far as to say they were told by the government not to show up, but said the decision is suspicious and questionable.

Oh, Holland won't bother going that far - possibly because the CTV reporter went there for him.

This whole strategy by the Liberals over Maher Arar makes no sense - they're acting as if the Conservatives have skeletons in their closet over this, when they were the ones responsible for it. They claim that the Conservatives may have pressured Zaccardelli into resigning, but they called for his head at the same time. And now they're calling the government out because members of their previous government refused to show up and testify before an important committee because they were "too busy?"

This, my friends, is known as the strategy of "hoping no one's paying attention."
