Arrogant bastards do let arrogant bastards run as Liberal candidates

MADD are the latest group to get pissed off at the Liberals arrogant behaviour:

Mothers Against Drunk Driving has accused a Nova Scotian Liberal candidate of trivializing their message, "Friends don't let friends drive drunk."

Gary Richard, the Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley candidate, is using the slogan "Friends don't let friends vote Conservative" in his campaign pamphlets.

The similarity of the two slogans has upset the president of the Cobequid Chapter of MADD.

"We're disappointed with it. We feel it trivializes a very serious message about driving impaired," Kathleen Foster-Alfred said.

But Richards said his slogan is a proper use of what has become an idiom.

"I believe the association of this campaign with their organization can do nothing, but honour them," Richards said.

Yes indeed, being associated with a bunch of corrupt and crooked sleazebags is a real honour for MADD, Mr Richard.

Nothing's more fun than random poking around and finding someone from another country going on the kinds of rants I go on. Nicely done!
