In my latest Loonie Politics column I express dismay, with the PEI election as the latest example, at the foolishness politicians and commentators spout about the profession they’re meant to understand.
In my latest Loonie Politics column I critique the New York Times and similar outlets for saying Benjamin Netanyahu couldn’t win the Israeli election, then that he wasn’t winning, and then that he only won because Israeli voters are horribly right wing, and instead tell their readers why Netanyahu, Trump and others appeal to so many people who don’t read the New York Times.
In my latest LooniePolitics column I say budgets have become so routinely vote-buying exercises that people cheer or boo depending if they get a good price for theirs not because they think it’s a good or bad idea to loot the Treasury for private gain.
In my latest Loonie Politics column I say the Liberals’ inept response when the SNC-Lavalin scandal erupted makes you wonder what politicians are good at, since they seem to be almost as bad at politics as at governing.
