Tofu Pie - It's the New Anthrax.

Or so believes MP Gerry Byrne.

Right about now I'll bet that Iggy is unabashedly (though secretly) envious of Stevie Spiteful's ability to muzzle most of his caucus (except for the usual lunatics like Maurice Vellacott).

An MP from Newfoundland and Labrador says Monday's incident in which the federal fisheries minister was hit in the face with a pie should prompt Ottawa to look into whether PETA, an international animal-rights group, should be labelled a terrorist organization.

"There has to be a review whether or not PETA has crossed the line now by attacking a federal minister of the Crown for the purpose of public intimidation of an office holder," Byrne told CBC News.


Meanwhile, Fisheries and Oceans Minister Gail Shea, having survived this assault perpetrated with soya curd, is making the most of the situation.
[...] she is not daunted by getting a pie in the face. "If this is what it takes to stand up for Canadian sealing families and this industry I'm certainly very proud to do it." Shea said she believes the attack on the seal hunt is just the beginning, and other industries will become targets.
Other industries will become targets? That sounds ominous. Let's see ... it can't be the medical isotopes-producing industry, the ReformaTories let that one die an ignominous death. The SUV manufacturing industry? Gone, too. Are there any industries left in Canada to attack?

Say, would the last industry to leave Canada please remember to close the light? Ta.

I saw a headline about that somewhere and just naturally assumed it was a ReformaTory. Later I realized it was a Lib.

Which just goes to show you, there ain't much difference IQ-wise, or common-sense-wise, between Cons and Libs.

When I saw that headline the first thing I did was to see if Byrne was a Con floor-crosser, nope. I forget how many Cons are in the Lib party now, but its a lot. Why can't we just be truthful - in that the Cons are Reformers, The Liberals are Red Tories and the NDP are Liberals. Sheesh.
