You have got to be fucking kidding me...

Ex-city police chief Bob Wasylyshen says he'd consider returning to the post

Comeback of the year? Could be.

Retired police chief Bob Wasylyshen left the door open for a return to the Edmonton Police Service yesterday.

The chief, who was popular both with rank-and-file cops and citizens, says he'd consider returning to the top-cop job if he's approached by the headhunting firm searching for the next chief

Jeebus. He was popular with the rank-and-file because he let them do whatever they wanted, and the only reason he seemed popular with civilians was because everybody was too terrified of the rank-and-file doing whatever they wanted to say anything about it.

Wasylyshen added he's heard from rank-and-file officers who say they'd like him to return.

That would be rank-and-file officers (isn't that an oxymoron, BTW?) like his son, we presume. Ye gods, just when you think the EPS couldn't continue its decline from one of the best forces in the world (and not that long ago, either) to a complete fucking joke, we find out that the asshole who started the slide wants his job back. Jesus fucking wept.

Loonitunes North of the 49th

It's always been a source of deep dismay to the elite Oi! Thump! sociologues that the Americans seem to have all the really good conservative nutjobs. Sure, we've got the Byfields, but they haven't been really relevant since about 1992, even if Link did get himself elected senator-in-waiting-and-waiting-and-waiting-and-boring-people-on-talk-radio. However, we Canadians are a can-do sort of people, and it is with great joy that we introduce to you some folks doing their darndest to shrink the conservative nuttiness gap. Behold, then, the wonder that is Conservative Life. What I particularly enjoy about this site is the effort made by its contributors to deal with the most pressing issues in Canadian conservative thought today. As proof, we have this article here:

Dr. Phil's Son To Wed Playboy Centerfold

Ironically, an episode the other day was about the evils of judging by appearance.

As with those that claim they read Playboy for the articles, I suppose he became smitten by this tramp through her personality.

For those charmed by the puny, ditzy model type, be warned. They don't strike me as the kind that will do much housework or happily do as they are told like a proper wife should.

Yup, cutting edge stuff, with a dose of gratuitous misogyny tossed in, just to make sure everyone remembers that yes, this piece was written by a twit. Then there's this, from the Conservative Life messageboards:

I Would Leap Off The Top Of A Mountain For Pres. Bush

That pretty much makes fun of itself, doesn't it...

Not Dead Yet...

A mere half-a-year on from the last post, the Oi! Thump! staff were awakened from a deep sleep by the kiss of a beautiful maiden. Sort of. By which I mean the cat walked into the Oi! Thump! Fortress of Solitude Command Centre (batteries sold seperately) and barfed. We're reading much ancient Greek and Latin these days, including Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound, Tacitus' Agricola, and a number of other things. The good folks to the south of us seem to have, at least somewhat, realized that they are being governed by a ninny, which is a good thing. And we still await said ninny's Grand Vizier, who is supposed to be paying a visit to our fair land sometime in the near future, presumeably after he has drunk the blood of some virgins, or something... More to come.
