A Michael Fortier Zinger

Paul Wells, DimitriSoudasGate: Circle the wagons and shoot inward:

I was about to suggest it'll be a rough day for [Michael] Fortier in the House of Commons, but then I remembered he doesn't work there.

In other news, there are 230 signatures in the "Stay Fortier Stay" petition:

To: The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada

Dear Prime Minister:

We, the undersigned, support your conviction that The Honourable Michael Fortier remain an unelected Cabinet Minister and retain his Senate seat until such time as you deem fit.

Sincerely,
The Undersigned

Michael Fortier...where have I heard that name before?

Oh yeah! He’s the unelected, unaccountable Minister of PWGSC, the guy Harper appointed to the Senate which he adamantly claims should filled only by elected members.

It’s nice to see Fortier is taking time for important parliamentary duties. The guy cannot sit in the House since he isn’t an elected member, but being a Senator must be really really hard work because he’s hardly ever there for Senate debates either.
