Micheal Ignatieff's Contempt of Parliament

In an ironic twist, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff has today called on Prime Minister Harper to show contempt for Parliament!

Yes, you heard that correctly... Michael Ignatieff actually WANTS the Prime Minister to do something that would be in contempt of Parliament! First, Iggy falsely accuses the PM of acting in contempt, and with his Opposition allies forces an election over his false accusations. But today, he's flip-flopped on that position, and now wants Mr. Harper to directly interfere with a report from an independent Officer of Parliament, and usurp the prerogative of the House of Commons by making her report public before the House has had the opportunity to see it first.

Which is it, Mr. Ignatieff? You can't have it both ways... you can't falsely accuse him of contempt, and then actively encourage him to do something that would in fact BE an act of contempt. That's what we call "Hypo-Grit-cy".

The ironic thing is, if he hadn't forced this unnecessary election, the AG would today be issuing that report that Mr. Ignatieff so desperately wants to see...

    I think we're looking at nits, here. There's a much bigger problem that we need to inform folks about: DeathStar 2011 - The Red Book menace:

    Why doesn't Ignatieff do it himself. I mean, the msm will follow him into their own contempt.

    How about asking Layton or Pat Martin to perform their act of contempt.

    Wow!

    Apparently it is not only the Master who is delusional.

    By your assessment, John Baird is also in contempt of Parliament because he leaked a draft...

    If anyone should know about glass houses and stones...

    Does your Lord not obligate you to be (intellectually) honest in all your dealings?

    Pray tell, whatever happened to Thou shall not lie, and Thou shall not bear false witness, and Thou shall not covet?

    Yikes!

    No Canadian government has ever been cited for contempt before.
