Refudiate this!

Yesterday, Sarah Palin offered her opinion on a proposal to build a mosque in the vicinity of the September 11th site. Her words:

“Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate.”

This tweet is a pundit’s dream, a perfect storm for mud-slinging, flak, fuss, hurrahs, miffs, polemics, rows, rumpuses, and maybe some discussion.

  1. Even if this comment is off-topic and uncivil, perhaps Norman Farrell could tell me what this sentence from The Vancouver Sun means:

    Kieran said in his e-mail that Taylor, a former CEO of the association, had talked to Glen Ringdall, then president of the association, who said Ringdall needed government relations and it
    would cost about $50,000 a year.

    I have a notice from Bill to NVG: “Just stop fucking snitching, NVG.”

    Write a column on the career move of Miro Cernetig, please.


  2. I was in the courtroom when defence lawyer Michael Bolton brought up that issue. Afterward, I wrote:

    “However, the testimony proceeded at something less than a snail's pace because Bolton was reading from emails written in 2003 and Brown acknowledged remembering pretty much nothing, except that his then colleague, Assistant Deputy Finance Minister Paul Taylor – later the Naikun wind farm electricity promoter – if he had spilled any beans about Cabinet policy to friendly lobbyists, would only have done so with good reason.

    Brown also remembered that it would have been entirely appropriate assistance if the ADM seemed to be helping the lobbyists land a client and gain large fees and sufficient expense allowances for the entirely appropriate hospitality required (fishing trips?) so that lobbyists could entertain government insiders.

    I wonder how Glen Ringdahl and his automobile dealer clients will react to knowing the the lobbyee was helping the lobbyist set up the contract for the lobbyor.”


  3. Norm, there are no words that describe Sarah Palin except stupid American. What does she advocate anyway? Everyone buy a gun, lock your doors and just shoot the bastard that doesn't agree with you?
