The World According to Garth

I remember thinking to myself over the weekend, "gosh, it's been a few days since Garth Turner has said anything". Well, luckily, this week's Hill Times gave all the Garth junkies out there their Garthy fix. On the front page, is a story about Garth predicting the next election (May 28th). Inside, they also have a recap of the great office move saga:

In protest [to the office move], Mr. Turner referred to Mr.Hill as "the evil Jay Hill" four times on his website and again in an Ottawa Citizen article last week.

I must say, "the evil Jay Hill" does have a nice ring to it, even if it is a little churlish. Luckily, Garth comes up with a much more poetic description of the evil Jay Hill:

"Isn't Jay Hill...merely another blinkered conservative neo-con bully in a Hugo Boss suit who'd rather play chess with offices rather than, say, do something constructive?"

I've been harsh on Garth in the past but I do have to tip my hat to him on that one. The man can write a great insult.

  • Last week it was "Garth makes the news by staging a sit-in because his new office sucks", this week he is apparently privy to an election date. Frankly, I'm tired of Garth Turner - I wonder what he'll do to make headlines next week. You should start a thread on the subject entitled, "What's Up With Garth This Week?"

    I see a "daily read" dropped from your list.

    Good on you. As always - the best on the wrong side of politics!

  • Yes, impotence often brings out the worst in people like Garth, doesn't it. He's all yours, folks. No more parties left for him to cross the floor to, is there? Except Jack's and that is in the "blue moon" category, isn't it? Enjoy.

  • By the way, since Garth is being so entertaining by providing his Conspiracy Theory de jour, here's mine:

    (assuming there is something between his ears - I am still unconvinced.)

  • Anyone want to guess whether Garth Turner will win or not. My guess is his riding will go whichever way the province and country goes. When he defected, he likely would have been re-elected, while if the current polls are true, he would probably lose his seat, so it just depends I guess on how things change.

    Still as much as I like the guys bluntness it does get tiring after a while. I do hope Dion is smart enough to not give him a cabinet post if he wins. Once he shows he is a team player and not a loose cannon, then give him one, but not initially.
