Are people really upset about Duffy's lastest "incident"? There was a time when Duffy used to infuriate me to no end, when he was disguised as a journalist. I remember many of us clammoring for opposition MP's to refuse to appear on his show, his slant so obvious, to make any discussion pointless. I still contend that Duffy's last act cost the Liberals a handful of seats. I also recall many other people calling people "whiny" for pointing to his bias, it was all a manufactured criticism.
The best thing that has happened, was when Harper appointed Duffy to the Senate. It lifted the veil, it confirmed what are eyes already knew. But, even then, there was still a measure of an old Ottawa soldier being rewarded for a respected career. Of course, most of us didn't buy it, but there was still some cover for Duffy, he was called the "reluctant partisan".
Since he began his tenure in the Senate, Duffy has voluntarily destroyed his supposed reputation, becoming the most noticeable low grade HACK in the Senate. He has essentially validated every single criticism that was ever hurled towards him. What's more delicious, he's done this without prompting, he's become unglued with little provocation.
I don't get mad at Duffy anymore, I relish every appearance or comment. With each successive "incident", he reduces himself to a cartoon figure, so embarrassing his former colleagues now shake their heads at hyper partisan ramblings. No respect from former peers, no respect within the chamber, no reputation, except as a growing laughing stock.
I want more Mike Duffy. Thanks for reaffirming everything we always said about you, thanks for REVEALING yourself for all to see. You always were nothing more than a Conservative shill, and now the period on your "career" will forever leave a pungent SCENT. It's just perfect.
