Sour Grapes

I will never for the life me understand the enduring celebrity appeal in this country of an obnoxious buffoon like Don Cherry, let alone completely fathom how anyone in their right mind could approve of his glibly autographing artillery shells in Afghanistan — particularly on Christmas Day for goodness sake! But hey, that’s probably just because I’m a left wing, pinko kook…

It’s understood that Defence Minister Peter MacKay who headed up the jolly “Team Canada Christmas Day tour” of Canadian military bases in southern Afghanistan awkwardly quipped, “Don, this is a different type of ‘He shoots, he scores.’” Ugh.
