Mid-Week Post

Quickly now....

The NDP attack Trudeau for using the crafted words of their beloved hypocrite:

Justin Trudeau continues to be slammed by New Democrats for invoking the memory of the late Jack Layton.

On Monday, following four federal byelections, Trudeau took a shot at the current NDP leader for running a negative campaign.

"The [NDP] is no longer the hopeful, optimistic party of Jack Layton, it is the negative, divisive party of Thomas Mulcair," he said at a Bourassa victory party, according to the Canadian Press.

"It is the Liberal party that proved tonight that hope is stronger than fear, that positive politics can and should win out over negative."

"Hope stronger than fear" is, of course an excerpt from Layton's final letter to Canadians.
On Tuesday, Mulcair suggested that the comments were in poor taste.

"That Justin Trudeau would use Jack Layton’s dying words as a political tool says everything that needs to be said about Justin Trudeau’s judgment and character," Mulcair told reporters on Tuesday, according to the Globe and Mail.

Well, Mr. Mulcair, no one accused Trudeau of having character but feel free to spout off one of his dad's arrogant phrases and then you'll be even.

Obama phones his bosses in Saudi Arabia to assure them that his deal with their mortal frenemy, Iran, is cool:

President Barack Obama phoned Saudi King Abdullah on Wednesday to discuss the interim deal between Iran and six world powers to curb Tehran's nuclear program, and emphasized that it will be important for Iran to follow through on commitments made in the deal, the White House said.

Obama and the king agreed to talk regularly as negotiations continue on a longer-term agreement "that would resolve the international community's concerns regarding Iran's nuclear program," the White House said.

Saudi Arabia had given its qualified approval to the deal earlier this week.

Liar, liar, receipt on fire:

Tip receipt hoax: It turns out that an incident in early November about a gay waitress claiming she wasn't tipped because she's gay, is a lie. The anonymous couple that the waitress served went to NBC 4 New York saying the whole thing was made up. They even had proof -- showing the NBC affiliate their receipt and credit card statement as evidence they did leave a tip...

And now, a happy Thanksgiving Day to the Americans and a happy Hanukkah to all:

Arise, be enlightened, O Jerusalem: for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.

And finally, the security in this mall is amazing:
