So the Prime Minister’s latest excuse on the Wright-Duffy $90,000 cheque (or WD-90 for short) is that Wright “should have told me earlier. That’s why I accepted his resignation upon reflection. Should I have reached that conclusion earlier? Perhaps.” Whaddaya mean, perhaps?
No, wait. That’s not the real problem. The real problem is this new claim that Harper accepted his chief of staff’s resignation because Wright didn’t tell him about the payment “earlier”. So you’d have kept him if he had? Is that what you’re saying? That the real problem wasn’t him writing the cheque, it was keeping you out of the loop so when the scandal erupted you could deny all knowledge?
For goodness sake, stop babbling inconsistent nonsense. Pick a story and stick to it.
In 1795 U.S. President George Washington wrote to Edmund Randolph (this quotation comes to me courtesy of the Patriot Post Founder’s Quote Daily) that “There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily.”
How very quaint this 18th-century sentiment seems today. But (now you laugh) I’d still like to see someone in politics try it. Who knows? It just might work.
