The Swift-Boating of Navdeep Singh Bains
Harper shouted down by Liberals

Stephen Harper was shouted down with cries of "shame, shame" during question period Wednesday after he raised a media report that said a Liberal MP is the son-in-law of a man police allegedly interviewed in connection with the Air India bombing case.
Ok, let's think about this for a moment. Nowhere did the media report say that Navdeep Singh Bains' father-in-law was actually a suspect, nor did it say anything about Bains himself. So, basically, the story's a complete non-starter. That, of course, did not prevent Harper from passing the following chain of logic on to his drooling sycophants: Bain's father-in-law was interviewed in connection with an act of terrorism, therefore the father-in-law is a terrorist, therefore Bains is probably a terrorist sympathizer, therefore the Liberals like terrorism. It's basically the same thing that's going on in the states with the silly babbling about Barrack HUSSEIN Obama's middle name, and that's doubtless where Harper got the idea.
And of course, he refused to apologize, blaming the Liberals for the fact that he didn't even get to deliver his insult before he was rightly shouted down. What a twerp.
