Canada “Too Dangerous” for Cheney

As reported in local Toronto-area paper The National Post, former U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney won’t be appearing any time soon in Canada.

Ryan Ruppert, president of the ironically-named promotions company Spectre Live Corp., which had scheduled an upcoming appearance at the Toronto Convention Centre for Cheney and his loathsome daughter Liz, said the malevolent mass-murderer had cancelled the engagement, citing safety concerns.

“After speaking with their security advisors, they changed their mind on coming to the event,” Ruppert told CTV Network. They “decided it was better for their personal safety they stay out of Canada.”

Good!

Disappointed ticket holders for the event can either bring in their tickets for a refund, or go to a replacement talk by inflammatory racist Mark Steyn.

Giuliani v. Obama

Why does anyone on planet Earth listen to the mendacious, self-serving bullshit trotted out by this superannuated douchebag? Moreover, who the hell cares about what Rudy Giuliani thinks about anything?

The Vagabond Scholar exposed Rudy’s predictable technique a while back:

Rudy Giuliani often uses weasel words (and dips into McCarthyist attacks), but he’s particularly fond of a specific weasel move, which follows this general pattern: “My opponent did not once say [a specific phrase of my own devising].” Giuliani follows this up by claiming his opponents have ducked some serious matter that they’ve actually discussed in some depth. Giuliani’s varied it a bit over the years, but I find this tactic particularly glaring and annoying. I also question how effective it is to anyone who’s not already in Giuliani’s camp (apparently, authoritarian crusaders).

Doesn’t the “mainstream media” have an operative bullshit meter… and shouldn’t it be frantically red-lining every time this horridly dishonest man opens his mouth?
