"The worst government is the most moral ..."

… when fanatics are on top there is no limit to oppression."

late columnist HL Mencken coined many epigraphs that apply to Stevie Spiteful's five-year rule and his chokehold on Parliament.

The above may seem incongruous, given the debates centered upon Minister Oda's declared admission that she did know about the addition of *NOT* to a legal document after it had been signed. But from the the HarperCon perspective denying funding to KAIROS was an opportune and judicious action and therefore, moral. Read Catherine Porter's excellent analysis as to why that is,

Consider the "moral sins" - rightfully or not attributed to ReformaTory MPs who had to leave Harper's Cabinet.

Maxime Bernier, Helena Guergis: in spite of many administrative and blunders, what ultimately did each of them in was the taint suggested by news reports that featured words like *biker chick* and *busty hookers*.

And remember,
Diane Ablonczy is still not a full-fledged minister; observers suspect her past support for the funding of Toronto's Gay Pride events is the reason.

So, to recap: any implied support for non-marital and non-heterosexual sex appears to be grounds for being dismissed from Cabinet. Unless you're Vic Toews, of course.

We suspected Jason Kenney was still a virgin but who knew John Baird was a monk?

"No one has ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the masses." HL Mencken

yeah, but that's the media's fault, too:

witness George Jonas's complaint today in the National Post:

"As an Italian columnist, I could be covering a salacious scandal right now, involving a stripper and a prime minister. I could be researching sultry Karima El Mahroug, 17..."
